Those of us who currently own an Aussie cannot imagine a more perfect dog. However, they are not the perfect dog for every person or family. If you are considering either buying or adopting an Aussie, we encourage you to research the breed carefully before making a decision. Ask yourself, "Does an Aussie have the characteristics that I want in a dog?" Talk to lots of owners. Go to shows and meet lots of dogs. Don't impulse buy or adopt. Owning a dog is a 12-14 year commitment. The number one reason dogs are referred for placement is that the people did not realize the time commitment involved in owning a dog (especially a people-oriented breed like Aussies).
Making a responsible commitment to
ownership can lead to years of enjoyment and
companionship for you and your family.
