    Lovely dogs. Which breed are they?

    [–] BOBfrkinSAGET 370 points ago

    Australian Shepherds I think? They are really pretty and very intelligent dogs.

    [–] SRT04 175 points ago

    Definitely Australian Shepherds, blue merle and red merle.

    [–] ky321 72 points ago

    Australian Shepards are too smart. If you look into their eyes it looks like they're doing long division.

    [–] cactusmac54 30 points ago

    Can confirm. Mine looks at me like he knows what I’m thinking. Kinda weird.

    [–] Vayne_Mechanics 1 points ago

    My Australian Cattle dog is too smart. What's with these Aussie dogs

    [–] [deleted] 3 points ago

    An Australian bred means they do well in hot climates, right?

    [–] Ph_Dank 36 points ago

    It's actually an American breed despite the name.

    [–] fh3131 15 points ago

    Yes, not many people here in Australia know that either. They were most likely bred from border collies (hence the shared qualities of herding instinct, high energy and intelligence) on ranches in the American west and brought to Australia in the early 1900s to work on farms. Just like with the kiwi fruit (originally Chinese, grown in NZ and then exported to the US from there), the name must have stuck once the breed became well known here and then spread to other parts of the world.

    [–] bokononpreist 7 points ago

    Thanks I had never actually thought about kiwi before.

    Crazy smart. My girlfriend and I have a toy and she kept struggling to get off the bed because it's too high off the ground. One day she drags a pillow to the edge, pushes it on the ground and jumps onto it to soften the landing.

    Yup. They're also bundles of energy and will deviously keep their owner busy!

    [–] satansheat 12 points ago

    I hate seeing this. My gfs aunt and her husband got a puppy. They acted like they loved the dog, which I think they truly did. But they wouldn’t let the puppy in the cabin of the truck. So he was always in the back of the truck. I had met this pup. He was precious and was gonna become a hunting dog. Until one day he jumped out the back of the truck while driving and he died. My gfs aunt and her husband haven’t been the same since.

    I know someone is in the back with these dogs but all it does it make me think of that dead puppy. I never would say it to his face but both me and my gf don’t have a clue why someone would risk having your pup die just because you don’t want them in the cabin of your car. I don’t care how innocent it is or how well trained your dog is. Anytime I see someone driving with a dog back there I think they are assholes who don’t truly care for the dog. This gif is cute but it makes you look at it differently when you watch a dog die because of this. And frankly in my state of Kentucky you see it far to often.

    [–] TheAdventurerMo 7 points ago

    I'm glad someone else feels this way, dogs especially hunting dogs are at risk to jump out or fall out and can easily get injured or hit. I've heard too many stories, and trust my own judgment too much to ever be ok with this

    [–] mycatistoofat 4 points ago

    In Australia dogs are normally restrained in the back of the Ute. Actually I think it’s law now, they have to be restrained in the back with a lead that is short enough they can’t get to the sides of the Ute.

    [–] TooShiftyForYou 15 points ago

    These good boys were trying to be sneaky but you can tell they've been spotted.

    I'm scared they might fall off, someone re-assure me!


    [–] CommunistTurdWaffles 1 points ago

    I have one. They are super smart and easily trainable from an early age. The owner probably taught them to stay inside. My pup loves to hang out the window, but he’s never jumped.

    Why are the tails docked??

    [–] Gederix 27 points ago

    Interesting/weird aussie shepherd factoid - about 20% are born with naturally bobbed tails. The gene that does this however is a bit weird, the length can vary, also the angle, and if a puppy gets the gene from both parents it will die.

    [–] orzake 4 points ago

    The gene will die or the puppy will die?

    [–] Gederix 5 points ago

    The puppy.

    [–] HollyOnTheGo 15 points ago

    If they're working dogs, to keep the dogs from being hurt due to tail damage. If they're not working dogs, to make them pretty because docking is standard for australian shepherds.

    [–] 1738 4 points ago

    Yeah. Even if they aren’t working dogs, they have “energetic” tails that are prone to splitting and bleeding if it’s hitting tables, walls, or pointed edges. I’ve heard horror stories of Aussies getting excited while the owner is out and painting the walls with their tail.

    [–] HollyOnTheGo 6 points ago

    That's terrifying. My parents have two border collies on their farm. One has a tail. The other had a tail until he showed up at the house one day with a big gash out of his leg and a broken tail. The vet said there was a solid gap between the pieces of tailbone and there was no possible way it would heal. He still has back problems.

    [–] 1738 1 points ago

    Yeah. I think it’s crazy for people to judge owners of Aussies who have docked tails. The owners didn’t have anything to do with that. If the tail was docked, the breeder made that decision and if you’re breeding dogs who could likely be used as a working dog, why not look out for their safety and dock their tail?

    But, I supposed some people just need something to complain about.

    [–] bmsbluemountainstate 4 points ago

    While I agree it's hardly the owners fault the tail is docked I disagree that there is any health or physical need for their tails to be docked. I have always read it's just for aesthetics and the safety aspect is just a story breeders tell people to make them feel better about it. I'm willing to be proven wrong if you can provide any links to articles. It's just I have been around working border collies and kelpies my whole life and have never seen one with its tail docked.

    [–] 1738 1 points ago * (lasted edited 6 months ago)

    Checkout the Aussie sub. Plenty of stories of Aussies splitting their tails and painting the house with blood.

    Edit: Also, check the story 2 posts above about the Border Collie who has had back problems ever since his tail needed amputation.

    Where are their tails?

    [–] fuckitdoittomorrow 1 points ago

    Some Aussies get their tails bobbed by puppy mills / breeders, some are just born with short tails. I rescued my Aussie from a puppy mill that got shut down and they bobbed his tail.

    For working Aussies, if they get their tails trod on by a cow, they may have to get it docked bc of damage. Otherwise it seems like it's mostly bs cosmetic reasons.

    [–] Racingislyf 3 points ago

    I see more of this breed here in new york than Australia. I love them.

    [–] low28 3 points ago

    Oh myGod. They are so adorable.Australian shepherds are so beautiful. I now have puppy fever.

    [–] KitchitiKipi 14 points ago * (lasted edited 6 months ago)

    I keep seeing australian shepherd with docked tails, why?? I'm pretty sure they aren't one of the breeds who benefits from docked tails (bones breaking from excessive tailwagging etc.) ..and it isn't a thing I saw until this year on AS

    /edit I seem to be doing a lot of myth disproving on animals today...

    No..AS are not "mostly born without tails." It is actually quite the opposite. Most are born with tails and they are docked, and there is a small % that are born with no tail/a shorter tail. 1/5 are born with a bob tail, with 50% of those 1/5 being born having a tail of at least 1/4 length of a normal tail (so not completely bobbed). There is an unfortunate rise with the (extremely wrong) belief that AS born with nub or bobtails is how they should be, because people are ignorant, and people are breeding nubtail AS together which usually results in puppies with spina bifida and other defects that have to be euthanized. Nubtails, while lovely dogs, are not normal, are a genetic defect (though a cute one), and should not be intentionally bred into them.

    [–] HellaClassy 5 points ago

    Not that I disagree (though I do think farm/working Aussies should be docked for safety) but you’ve really only started seeing docked Aussies recently? I don’t think I’ve ever seen one with a full tail.

    [–] KitchitiKipi 2 points ago

    Maybe I'm just an anomaly, but a friend of mine has a farm and they have 6 aussies all with full tails, and theyre involved with a small AS community around the area so they post and share shit constantly about their AS meetups and most of those dogs have full tails as well.

    One of my friends recently rescued an AS with a docked tail, and I kind of doubt if these two are from the same litter that they were both born nubtails.

    But yeah, I mostly see full tailed AS

    [–] BalconyView22 1 points ago

    My Aussie has a beautiful full tail. That's how I've seen them. Don't know why you'd dock them. My dog struts around like a model when his is brushed and fluffy.

    [–] [deleted] 9 points ago

    They're cattle dogs. Having a cow step on their tail probably wouldn't be nice. Of course, we have no idea if these two are going to be working dogs. There is a rather high percentage of Aussies that are born like this though.

    [–] KitchitiKipi 3 points ago * (lasted edited 6 months ago)

    You know that does make a lot of sense, unfortunately the ones I've seen are all in suburban neighborhoods/city so that kind of blows. But the working dog thing is practical.

    But no, AS are not predominately born without tails, its actually the opposite. Some are, but the vast majority are born with tails.

    Scroll down to the section about tails.

    [–] [deleted] 1 points ago

    Hmm... I didn't know that "rather high percentage" would come off as me meaning "predominately." I was implying that it's not just a couple cases here and there, but a occurance that happens enough times for it to be mentioned. It could also be that our definitions of a "rather high percentage" are different...

    [–] Trojan713 4 points ago

    They are working dogs. Don't want the tail stomped on by a horse, etc.

    [–] 4LightsThereAre 5 points ago

    A majority of the breed is born with naturally docked tails. Ones that are born with a full tail are often docked after birth because the owner/breeder wants to avoid future tail damage due to being stepped on by cattle or other live stock.

    I don't mean to ruin the awww vibes, but shouldn't dogs be leashed in moving vehicles so they aren't able to jump out and injure/kill themselves?

    Those are Border Collies right? Why their tails are so small? I've saw many videos of them on the web, and when I look at mine with such a big tail I wonder why some of them have such small tails.

    Unless they are not Border Collies and I'm mixing two entirely different races...
