Australian Shepherds

20 Aug

Turns out Australian Shepherds are not, in fact, Australian. I was commenting to an Australian that I thought it was strange that I hadn’t seen one since living here and she didn’t know what breed that was. So I looked it up. Australian Shepherds were bred in the US and were named because of the Australian sheep they herded. Huh. Who knew?

Our beloved Australian Shepherd, Patches
