Australian cattle dog Description
  The Australian Cattle Dog is a well-muscled, powerful yet agile, compact, sturdy working dog. It is also known as the Australian Heeler, Hall's Heeler, Queensland Heeler and the Blue Heeler. Its body is somewhat longer than high with a slightly curved tail reaching approximately to the hock. When viewed from the front, its front legs should be perfectly straight. It has a broad head that is slightly rounded between the moderately pointed, pricked ears that are widely set. The eyes are dark brown and oval shaped. The teeth meet in a scissors bite. Its double coat is weather-resistant and consists of a short, dense undercoat and a short, straight outer coat.
