    Yes I would have said Koolie for Koda. My friends' ASD looks more like border colies with brown, red, and black marking. Then her sister looks more like your aussie.

    Those kelpies I met while I was camping around western NSW are not necessarily friendly but they were 100% for their owners. Despite of crazy behaviour from Chookie, they would not move a bit from their owners.

    I don't think I would have another dog right soon but definitely ASD and Kelpie will be on my list.
    I love cooking but I love eating even more.

    Aussie Sheps have much more fur than Koolies.

    Authough i think Koolies are Gorgeous, in my opinion, Koda is too fluffy to look Koolieish (is that a word? )
    he is actually a lot more fluffy than most Aussies i have seen that are his age.
    I think as he gets older he is just going to get fluffier and fluffier! lol

    How old is Koda? He may still have the puppy fluff.

    I have an Aussie. I just don't post here often Most are reserved with strangers (as per the breed standard) but mine thinks everyone she meets is a long lost friend! She's not really fluffy, her coat is medium length with a slight harshness in the outer coat but soft underneath... her chest, leg feathers and pants are softer. Boys tend to have more coat than girls.

    Great dogs but I definitely don't think they're for everyone... mine is VERY active and intelligent but doesn't take anything seriously so doesn't have the focus of most other working breeds. They tend to be constantly happy dogs but have quite strong protective instincts. They play hard and rough and are best with other Aussies as they seem to annoy other herding breeds and terriers. Mine loves training but gets bored easily. She is super snuggly but still has an independent streak. She is calming down as she gets older but still gets up to mischief. She only runs on two speeds, super crazy go go go speed and completely zonked speed

    You can get long haired koolies although they are not common. I have met at least one with more coat than my Aussie...

    Hi,

    Any chance for photos? Does your ASD love swimming in winter at 7am?

    Here's my little girl. She doesn't look like your typical Aussie as she is mismarked.



    And no, she doesn't like swimming... she's a little princess
