Australian Cattle Dog

Australian Cattle Dog

Let’s start from the beginning the first dog was called a Smithfield, it had heavy hair, floppy ears, a bob tail with a dark body and a white ring around its neck, that dog was crossed with a Native Australian Dingo, the resulting dog was crossed with a Rough Coated Collie.

Let’s start from the beginning the first dog was called a Smithfield, it had heavy hair, floppy ears, a bob tail with a dark body and a white ring around its neck, that dog was crossed with a Native Australian Dingo, the resulting dog was crossed with a Rough Coated Collie. This dog was then crossed with a Blue Smooth Highland Collie; the resulting dog was crossed back on the Dingo again. These dogs then had some Bull Terrier added to them (about 1870); to calm this little fighter down they then added Dalmatian into the mix to make a more devoted loyal dog. Standard size Heelers range in size from 17 inches and up. They come in two colors red and blue. Blue dogs can be blue, blue mottled, or blue speckled with or without black, tan, or white markings. Red dogs are evenly speckled with solid red markings. Both red dogs and blue dogs are born white (except for any solid-colored body or face markings) and the red or black hairs grow in as they mature. Full blood Heelers have brown eyes.
