Australian Shepherds are known as the most loyal, loving and affectionate of all dogs. They have been bred since ancient times to serve their masters faithfully. These dogs were originally used for hunting animals such as deer or boar. Today they are well adapted to work with humans in various jobs including farm hands, police officers, search and rescue teams etc. Dogs like these make great companions for people because they do not require much exercise and enjoy being around other family members too! There are many different types of dogs that are called “Shepherd” but there is only one breed of dog called the Australian Shepherd. This breed was developed from a purebred English Shepherd. The Australian Shepherd is very popular in Australia and it’s a good choice for families looking for a companion who will always be loyal and respectful towards them. Some people think that this type of dog looks similar to the Doberman Pinscher, however, they aren’t related at all!

They come in several colors and patterns including black, brown, chocolate, chestnut, grey and white. Their coat varies from light to dark brown with lighter spots or patches throughout its length and thickness. These dogs are intelligent and learn commands quickly. They are also one of the most trainable dog breeds available. These dogs work best on farms, ranches and in other areas where they can see their master at all times. This is a very adaptable breed that can easily live in an apartment, but it will be happier if it has lots of room to run and play. This is an extremely active breed that needs plenty of exercise every day! The Australian Shepherd is a bold and confident dog that is extremely loyal to its human companions. These dogs are very protective of the people they care about and will become aggressive towards any strangers who come around. If you want a dog that will bark at strangers, this is an excellent choice! You should provide firm training and socialization to these dogs when they are puppies. You should begin exposing them to different people, animals and other things whenever possible. This will help prevent them from being overly protective or aggressive towards people in the future.
