Americans created the Australian Shepherd or Aussie by crossing various collie types with imported Pyrenean shepherds. The Aussie has become very popular on American farms and ranches. Strong herding instincts enable the Aussie to steer and direct almost any farm animal into its pen. With the right owner, the Aussie can be an affectionate and playful companion for the family.
