History

The Australian Stumpy Tail Cattle Dog has a long history in Australia, where he was carefully bred to drive cattle in the early 19th century.

As for the true founder of the breed, there are actually two versions:

  • The first quotes a certain Thomas Simpson Hall, who crossed sheepdogs from the north of England, the Smithfields, with Dingoes, the native canines of Australia, creating the first Australian Cattle Dog known as “Hall’s Foot Dog” (towards 1830).
  • In the second version, a rancher from New South Wales named Bathurst Timmins crossed a Smithfield with the Dingo in 1830. The babies, short tailed red dogs, they met as “Timmins Teethers”.

These dogs were great to work with., but it turned out they were too harsh on the cattle. You had to make another cross. A Smooth Collie Blue Merle and the result was the creation of an excellent all-terrain, the ancestor of the current Australian Stumpy Tail Cattle Dog.

The Smithfield brought the natural short tail, the Dingo the color red and the ability to naturally accept the harsh conditions of the remote Australian outback. Last but not least, the blue color comes from Smooth Collie Blue Merle, which was also known as the German Coolie.

In general, short tails were bred in the vast rural areas of Australia and only a small number were recorded in herd books.

Thanks for the tip.

Australian Stumpy Tail Cattle Dog) FCI 351 y el Autralian Cattle Dog FCI 287

These are two distinctly different races have a common origin (Australia), his work (livestock grazing and control), A little history, and work ethic (work until fall).

The Australian Stumpy Tail Cattle Dog is not an Australian Cattle Dog with its tail cut. There are major structural differences between these two breeds of cattle.
