This breed is very similar to the Australian Cattle dog

Breed Standard - American Versionof the Australian Cattle Dog Approved June 12, 1979

General Appearance:

The general appearance is that of a sturdy, compact, symmetrically-built working dog. With the ability and willingness to carry out any task however arduous, its combination of substance, power, balance and hard muscular condition to be such that must convey the impression of a great agility, strength and endurance. Any tendency to grossness or weediness is a serious fault.


The utility purpose is assistance in the control of cattle, in both wide open and confined areas. Ever alert, extremely intelligent, watchful, courageous and trustworthy, with an implicit devotion to duty, making it an ideal dog. Its loyalty and protective instincts make a self-appointed guardian to the stockman, his herd, his property. Whilst suspicious of strangers, must be amenable to handling in the show ring.
