Australian Cattle Dog Calendars: also known as the Blue Heeler. They are a tough, hard working dog who can cover immense distances. They are a versatile herding dog and can work with horses, goats and even ducks. Considered a working dog who is fearless and determined, the Australian Cattle Dog has been carefully bred to what it is today through use of Dalmatians, wild Dingos, Collies and other breeds. A one-person dog, they are rather aloof with strangers, but to their owner they are eternally loyal, gentle, alert and can easily be trained. They are quite easygoing with people they know, and can get along with children, although they may try to herd them. The AuCaDo, they they are often referred, can be stubborn and independent. Puppies are born all-white with coat coloring appearing a few weeks after birth. These are medium sized dogs with a quick gallop and a quiet temperament. They have natural prick ears and are sturdy and compact. Muscular and strong, they have almond shaped eyes and come in colors of blue, blue mottled, blue speckled or red with or without black, blue or tan markings on the head. They have a long brush tail and smooth double coat. Agile and intense, the Australian Cattle Dog is an excellent herder. Australian Cattle Dog Calendars make great gifts.
