  1. I love my Aussie, she is incredibly smart and very fun and active. Like your video says, she fallows me everywhere.

  2. I have a 8 year old mini australian shepherd. He's a blue merle who was born without a tail. He walks like a bear.

  3. These are great dogs. I'm lucky ours has an off switch when in the house. Aussies tend to prefer their owners over other dogs. They are very smart, loyal, great with children and easy to train. We have a beautiful red merle. His mother and father were minis, but he turned out to be average sized. It doesn't often happen, but it did in our case. I'm actually happy that we ended up with an average size rather than a mini even though that wasn't what we expected. He is a stunner and true to the breed with a wonderful disposition.

  4. why you not cut the tails? been breeding aussies for many years and bobbed tails is part of the standard…

  5. I had a Shih Tzu poodle mix, named Louie. He died on the 30th of December, late at night from a seizure and I really miss him. It's the first time in 17 years we haven't had a dog. I've decided to get a female Aussie and name her Tika. It'll be a while before we can get her, but the house feels empty without a dog…

  6. Best dog I’ve ever owned
    Beautiful and very loyal. Extremely smart and great with people and other animals.

  7. Wow so many Aussie owners and lovers ?. Well I don’t exactly own an Aussie, but I do have a German Shepherd and she’s pretty sweet too. Sweet as pumpkin pie!! ? ?♥️

    Genetically white Aussies can have issues like

    Blindness

    Being deaf

    Or other issues

    It can't be all white like that
    It has to be merle

    ?? Just saying if you have an all white aussie

  9. Having raced 3 Aussies, memory eternal, you suck… Were you trying to impress people with your kid on the video? Anyone who is owned, love, Aussies as a breed of dog don't go to these things… Get a real job,

  10. Aussies are my favorite breed 😀 I have a black tricolor aussie and she is full of energy. I gave this video a big thumbs up!

  11. I love aussies to death, I owned my first girl and I’d never go back! Aussies aren’t a dog for everyone and I’ve learned that after my sister thought she’d like one and it didn’t work the way she wanted. But me personally am a huge Aussie mom! I don’t use YouTube much but I do have an Instagram @god_bless_the_shepherds they’re an amazing breed! Anyone interested in an Aussie I’d recommend one in a heart beat! But you gotta know the Aussie to have an Aussie ; )

  12. Why are the facts numbered backwards? The first fact you say is the first one! Is it a classification? And if so, according to which parameter? From the "least what" to the "most what"? It is completely understated.

  13. Thirty minutes of brisk exercise a day? That's a recipe for a trashed home. You have to see their stamina to believe it.

  14. My Aussie is black and brown with a title bit of white and her name is Briggs. she is such a pretty puppy and she loves meeting new people

  15. My Aussie is all black fur and brown eyes, his name is Vader (yes like Darth Vader) and he is such an amazing boy. He loves playing with other dogs and loves people
