My name is Marge Perri. I live with my family and a pack of dogs in Estonia, in a cozy house which is situated 25 km from the capital city Tallinn. In 2005 when I got my first Australian shepherd “Tinny” (Gunlake Dancing Queen), I fell absolutely in love with this breed.
The Australian Shepherd is an intelligent working dog of strong herding
and guarding instincts. He is a loyal companion and has the stamina to work all day. He is well
balanced, slightly longer than tall, of medium size and bone, with coloring that offers variety and
individuality. He is attentive and animated, lithe and agile, solid and muscular without
cloddiness. He has a coat of moderate length and coarseness.
The Rough Collie is undeniably, a glamorous, eye-catching dog, with their abundant sweeping coat, chiselled head and alert expression of dignity. A medium to large dog, Rough Collie coats should be dense, harsh to touch and with an abundant mane and frill. Ears are expressive and attractively tipped forward when alert.
Friendly and affectionate with family and those known or introduced as friends, the Rough Collie bonds closely and is a loyal companion. Inclined to bark to alert to the presence of strangers, the Rough Collie can make a good watch dog, but will back down quickly when asked to do so, as they are not inclined towards aggression.
Rough Collies are quick learners and will thrive when both their bodies and minds are kept exercised and entertained.
The Miniature American
Shepherd was developed in California during the late 1960’s with the breeding of small Australian Shepherds. These dogs were bred with a goal of maintaining their small size, active character and intelligence.
The breed has been used for herding smaller stock such as sheep and goats, although they have the heart to tackle larger stock as well. Their small size was looked upon with favor, as they could more easily double as a household pet. They became especially popular with equestrians traveling to horse shows, as their intelligence, loyalty, and size made them an excellent travel companion. In this way their popularity spread across the countries.
