Also known as an Australian Cattle Dog, the AussieHeeler breed reaches a height of around 20 inches and an average weight of 50 lbs. for males as well as females.  Their short coats are easy to groom and they are very intelligent as well as energetic and work well with families that enjoy outdoor activities.  This breed is a mix of Australian Shepherd and Australian Cattle Dog and requires early socialization with other people and dogs from a young age as they are naturally tempted to chase and herd smaller animals and are naturally protective.
