In early July of 2019, we brought home Diesel(left), a mini-Australian shepherd puppy. He has since become a faithful canine companion, who enjoys herding cows and sheep, and playing with us. We found a mate for him in mid January of 2020. Daisy(right) is also a mini-Australian shepherd. She is a bit more skittish than Diesel, but loves playing with him. Diesel and Daisy are allowed to mate whenever they want to, and so far, have given us puppies each time. Both dogs are purebreds.
Daisy’s coloring is described as black tri, while Diesel is a blue merle. The black tri is the most common coloring for this breed, but there are four types of coloring: Black tri, red tri, blue merle, and red merle.
