Our Dogs

Australian Cattle Dog

The “Blue Dog” for whom we named our ranch, is also known as the Australian Cattle Dog, Queensland Heeler or Blue Tick Heeler and a breed of herding dog originally developed in Australia for driving cattle.  They were a cross of the dogs used by drovers in Northumberland, with dingoes and the Timmins Biters. Their short-coats occur in two main color forms... either brown or black hair distributed fairly evenly through a white coat, which gives the appearance of a red or "blue" dog.
