  • Hi, is your Australian shepherd destructive? Or could you tell us what you think about them? We are looking at getting one to be a family dog, but more to do the chickens chores twice a day with my daughter, and be good around the chickens alone. Thanks so much!

    I've not had one yet that's destructive.I have found that if you get one well bred from a breeder, who works their dogs with stock, you'll have a much better time of it. A good place to start is with ASCA.org, and check with an affiliate club near you, then start asking around.

    Please be aware that although minie aussies can be attractive because of their size, they're not a purebred Aussie, often have toy dog in them to achieve their size. They can be a nightmare with stock, and health-wise.
    They can be as lazy as the day is long but good protectors and fine companions for kids. Good luck!

    Thank you so much for your info. We really appreciate it. We would definitely go with a standard Aussie if that’s the route we take...but she really likes what she’s read about shelties.
