Oh so sorry, didn't see that the dog passed, so sorry. Lost my 14 year old Aussie on 12/1/15, still missing her. So sorry. Aussies are the best, my favorite breed. Good luck to you.

I have an English Shepherd and while they are not black, your dog looks like an Aussie/English cross to me. Good luck ...he should be a handful initially, but they are loving, loyal dogs.

So sorry, parvo is preventable and I will never understand why people don't vaccinate. Sending prayers your way.

Our neighbor has one. They don't look alike. Our neighbor's dog belongs to a great family. The dog is not nice.

Sorry but I loathe it when people buy a working dog for a backyard.

Aussies should be out on the farm.

Did you not notice that this is an old thread and that the OP tragically lost the sweet dog she rescued after five days due to Parvo? Please read, think and care before you post.

As an avid Aussie fancier of 25 years and owner of seven Aussies over that span, I will take this opportunity to educate you. There are lines that make great pets and lines (strictly working lines) that don't. There is a huge division in the breed and no way do all Aussies belong on a farm.

Aussies from working lines...we've had them and live in a subdivision...do very well in active homes with savvy owners who make sure their dogs are both mentally and physically stimulated on a daily basis. They are a disaster in homes where folks are looking for a pretty couch potato dog.

My heart broke as I read this thread and I am touched by the devotion of the OP. If you are reading this, OP, thank you so much for giving this sweetie the best days of her life! You are an angel.

He looks like our Aussie. They are great dogs. Ours loves to travel and is very sweet. Great protector. On by the way the black and white Aussies have similar looks. Of Border Collies. If you doubt he is Aussie look on some of the web sites and you will find ones just like him. Enjoy. They are special animals.
