The Australian Shepherd will steal your shoes and your heart. They can easily outsmart their owners with intelligence, drive and focus for days. Best known as a “rodeo dog”, they were originally bred to herd cattle so they like having a job to do, even if it’s just getting the squeaker out of a toy. This is a creative canine that will find ways to entertain herself if boredom sets in; have plenty of toys lying around or you could return home to find your place looking like a frat house after a keg party. A highly devoted doggo, she can be on the bossy side, but her vivacious personality more than makes up for it.
