    BTW I've never seen so much poo in all my life
    the coloring definitely looks like an Australian shepherd, but i would say if they were crossed with an Australian shepherd they would have long/longer fur. i would say they are Kelpie X Koolie

    black and tan with white bits, kelpie look
    spotty ones, coolie or maybe cattle dog, there's a fair bit of colour variation in both breeds.

    These puppies would be very popular with the agility crowd. And people who like to round up sheep. I can't believe they'd get dumped like that.

    Aussie shepherds I've seen look a lot more like border collies, they have longer coats. But they have spotty ones too. Most (all) Aussie shepherds have not much tail like a bob. It's natural not docked.

    Funny you should say that Hyacinth, the carer I dropped them to over night when they had their vetwork done ended up keeping one of the merle ones, she has her own agility club and fell in love with him

    I can't believe these particular pups were dumped either, they were all very calm, intelligent pups.

    I would have happily kept any of them.....they're all gone to new homes now though

    And that would be the hardest thing about being a foster carer for rescue dogs.

    That you can't possibly keep them all.

    Glad they've all got new homes now.

    Many Aussies do have natural bob tails but nowhere near all of them. I have a tailed Aussie from two tailed parents and all her siblings have tails also

    In saying that, I think they are koolie x as well! Either way, koolies and Aussies have similar temperaments so it doesn't matter much
