Shel-Aussie Characteristics

Shel-Aussies are a hybrid mix between an Australian Shepherd and a Shetland Sheepdog. They’re beautiful dogs with thick, glorious coats and sweet dewy eyes. With early socialization and obedience training, this breed gets along well with people of all ages and all other types of pets. These dogs work great on the farm, as a loving family companion, or both!

Fast Facts

  • Energy Moderate
  • Size Medium
  • Trainability Determined

Standing between 16-23 inches and weighing between 30-65 pounds, the Shel-Aussies size is heavily dependent on its parents.  However, regardless of the size, the Shel-Aussie will have the same thick coat both their parents have.  The dense undercoat makes these dogs heavy shedders, and are not recommended for those with sensitive allergies. Regular grooming and frequent brushing will be required to keep stray hair to a minimum. These dogs come in a variety of coat, eye, and nose colors, making them unique from one to the next.
 
Like most herding dogs, the Shel-Aussie has a substantial amount of energy and will require frequent exercise. These dogs will misbehave if left inside for too long and have a strong desire for purpose, whether that's herding sheep or training for agility sports. A combination of their athletic ability, intelligence, and willingness to please makes them a top contender within performance events in their size group.  
 
These dogs make great running, hiking, or biking partners and are typically happy to meet new people and other animals. Early socialization and obedience training will ensure a happy and manageable Shel-Aussie. Because this is a fairly new breed, more research is needed, but it appears that mixing the two breeds together to create the Shel-Aussie lessens the likelihood of common health issues that are common with both the Sheltie and the Aussie.
