Aussalier Characteristics

The Aussalier is a new hybrid mix between either a toy or miniature Australian Shepherd and a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. There can be several variations in the appearance of these little dogs, even within a single litter. Because they're a new breed, little is known about their health, but they retain the same loving attitude of both their parents and they tend to be both cute and quite stunning in looks.
 

Fast Facts

  • Energy Moderate
  • Size Medium
  • Trainability Determined

Because the Aussalier breed is so new, there are no recognized standards regarding their size. They can range anywhere from 13-16 inches and weigh between 15-35 pounds. Their coats can take on a range of colors and textures like merle all within the same litter. If you love the idea of falling in love with a true one-of-a-kind pup, this is a great choice for you!
 
Because the Aussalier is a combination of two great companion breeds, these dogs have charming and loving personalities. The King Charles Spaniel tends to be quite relaxed and enjoy time on the couch, while the Australian Shepherd is one of the most high-energy dogs out there. This makes the Aussalier kind of the “perfect middle.” They love romping and playing but can settle down for couch snuggles, too.
 
Depending on your dog, the herding instinct may be more prevalent than other Aussaliers, and it's advised to give lots of early socialization and obedience training to ensure your Aussalier knows how to properly play with children. Otherwise, herding dogs are known to nip at the heels of those they're trying to herd, which likely won't be appreciated by children.
 
Unfortunately, many experts agree that small or mini dogs are at a higher risk for dental issues than large dogs. Just be sure to take your Aussalier to get regular checkups at the vet and ensure any dental disease is caught early.
 

How dog-friendly is New Mexico?

New Mexico has some room to grow when it comes to its animal-friendly laws and accommodations. On the plus side, a few New Mexico cities are super dog-friendly, and the state is a great destination for visitors traveling with their pups. 


Let’s look at a few studies into New Mexico’s dog-friendly rankings. 


Animal advocacy group Pawsafe ranked New Mexico as the 35th most pet-friendly state of all 50 states. They examined several factors, including animal cruelty laws, pet-friendly accommodations, and the number of dog parks and hiking trails. Unfortunately, they didn’t rank New Mexico very well for its animal welfare laws, which address things like animal abuse, neglect, or even fighting.


Another study by a safety review website, Safewise, actually ranked New Mexico last of all 50 states. The ranking has a lot to do with animal welfare laws and access to pet services. 


Overall, we’re hopeful that New Mexico makes some improvements for its dogs and dog lovers!
