Favorite Images of Australian Cattle Dogs
Animals list created by kathy
A list of my favorite images of Australian cattle dogs.
The Australian Cattle Dog (ACD), or simply Cattle Dog, is a breed of herding dog originally developed in Australia for droving cattle over long distances across rough terrain.
The Australian Cattle Dog is a medium-sized, short-coated dog that occurs in two main colour forms. It has either brown or black hair distributed fairly evenly through a white coat, which gives the appearance of a "red" or "blue" dog.
As with dogs from other working breeds, the Australian Cattle Dog is energetic and intelligent with an independent streak. It responds well to structured training, particularly if it is interesting and challenging.
It was originally bred to herd by biting and is known to nip running children.
It forms a strong attachment to its owners and can be protective of them and their possessions.
It is easy to groom and maintain, requiring little more than brushing during the shedding period.
The most common health problems are deafness and progressive blindness (both hereditary conditions) and accidental injury; otherwise, it is a robust breed with a lifespan of 12 to 14 years.
