The American Bull-Aussie is a mixed breed, so they don’t have history as their own breed. Both parent breeds, however, are well known and loved.
The Australian Shepherd, like their name implies, originated as a herding breed. However, the breed’s origins are actually based in America, not Australia. While herding was the primary intent for the breed, today they excel at agility, scentwork, and other ‘jobs’ that help this dog feel successful. The American Bulldog was once used as a bull-baiting dog, but progressed to primarily being used for farm work. Their drive and loyalty remains today, and they are happy performing a ‘job’ or task for their dog parents. Both of these breeds are respected for their loyalty, independent natures, and willingness to follow commands — with proper training.
