Australian Shepherd Puppies for Sale in Florida

The Australian shepherd was originally bred as a durable herding dog in the mountains of Europe. Today, this cowboy’s companion has retained its working instinct while making a fun and enthralling family pet.

Many Australian shepherds still work as cattle herders, while others earn their keep as therapy dogs and in search and rescue. An active, easy going dog breed, the Aussie is extremely intelligent and loves close attention from family members.

You can’t help but notice the Australian shepherd closely resembles the border collie. In fact, recent testing found that the two breeds are closely related. They have alluring green or amber eyes with that distinctive alert sheepdog gaze. Their mid-length coat comes in dark brown, blue and yellow, as well as contrasting blue merle or red merle varieties. This medium-sized puppy weighs from 35 to 70 pounds and stands 18 to 23 inches in height. Generations of working-based breeding means that the Aussie is generally a healthy breed.

History of Aussie Puppies

Despite the name, the Australian shepherd’s bloodlines are as much in the United States as the Aussie Outback. In the early 1800s, shepherds from the Pyrenees Mountains in Europe traveled to Australia, taking their faithful dogs with them. As time went on, some of these decided to explore America and headed to California. Ranchers already established there admired the working qualities of this recently arrived breed. They assumed they were Australian, hence the name Australian Shepherd. These dogs were then further refined and honed in America.

Grooming

Australian Shepherds are regular shedders, meaning they need weekly brushing sessions and more when they lose hair heavily once or twice a year. During this shedding season, an undercoat brush can be used every two or three days. To keep their waterproof, double-layer coat looking its best, occasional trimming is recommended. They only require bathing on an as-needed basis.

Character

With their working instincts still present, Australian shepherds love to be busy. They’re always on the go and like to get involved in everything their family or owner is doing. Aussies thrive when part of an active household that indulges them.

Like most intelligent breeds, keeping the Australian shepherd busy is essential for these dogs. Ideally, this is a combination of physical and mental stimulation that keeps their working instincts fulfilled.

Exercise

The Australian Shepherd needs plenty of exercise. Activities, like jogging, chasing balls, biking, and playing Frisbee, are constructive outlets for their enthusiasm. A decent-sized yard to help it work out its abundant energy is strongly recommended. This is definitely a breed for those who can commit to ongoing activity, as their strong work drive can lead them to mischief if not occupied.

The Australian shepherd is an extremely intelligent working dog with strong working instincts. A loyal companion, it has the energy to work and play all day.

Where do I start? Everyone at Your Puppy FL was so nice and helpful throughout the entire process of getting our new furry baby. We got to come into the store in Largo FL more than once to make sure we wanted the pup we have now. You get to play with them and ask as many questions as you need to make sure you are comfortable with your choice. The day we finally purchased our Pomeranian, Logan and Jestin the store associates were very helpful and nice. The delivery process was SPOT ON! They delivered our new puppy to us the very same day we purchased him. He came with all of his paperwork, up-to-date shots and even a free first vet appointment coupon.

I had a very pleasant and excellent experience with YourPuppy FL. Natalie was extremely helpful in answering all my questions. She let me Facetime with the puppy I chose to better view his behavior. She was extremely friendly, knowledgeable, and helped me so much with all my questions. She walked me through the entire adoption process and then even delivered him to my home! Dexter (a Bichon Poo) is a little Dennis The Menace and definitely keeps us on our toes and moving, which at our age is better then becoming couch potatoes..lol. He has already taken charge of the household and keeps us laughing like crazy. We already love him to peaces. Truly couldn’t have asked for a better puppy or service. Natalie Thank you for making the new addition to our family such an enjoyable experience. 😊👍
