Here is a great link telling you all about them. Very active dogs with alot of energy, short tails, blue eyes often and love the speckled coats or black, or red colors.

There are two breeds of dog that are often referred to as Aussies. The first is the Australian Shepherd a breed developed in the United States and recognized by the AKC in 1992. The second is the Australian Terrier which I'm sure you are familiar with. In fact I think it was developed in Australia probably from Yorkie or Silky stock.

And I am one of the Aussie owners on the forum ... the shepherd kind :-)
