Australian Shepherd Dog Compilation

The Australian Shepherd, often known simply as the "Aussie", is a medium-sized breed of dog that was, despite its name, developed on ranches in the Western United States during the 19th century. The dog was developed from a breed or breeds from the Basque country in Western Europe. It was brought by Basque people to the United States. These people had previously lived only briefly in Australia before moving to America. The breed otherwise has no connection to Australia. [(Needs clarification: Australian Shepherds are named as such because livestock owners used them to herd Australian sheep. Needs citation)]
