FEATURES:

The Australian shepherd is a medium sized breed of solid build. The ASCA standard calls for the Australian shepherd to stand between 18-23 inches at the withers, females being 18-21 inches and males measuring 20-23 inches, however, quality is not to be sacrificed in favor of size.
Color Colour variants: Black tricolor, red merle, blue merle, liver tricolour.Aussie colors are black, red (sometimes called liver), blue merle (marbled black and gray), and red merle (marbled red and silver or buff); each of these colors may also have copper points and/or white markings in various combinations on the face, chest, and legs. A black or red dog with copper and white trim is called tricolour or tri, a black or red dog with white trim but no copper is called bicolor or bi. White, rather than pigment, around the ears is an indicator of increased risk for white-related deafness. Two different eye colours may indicate later blindness. Excessive white on the face and ears can place an individual dog at greater risk for sunburn and subsequent skin cancer (info from Wikipedia).
