Description: The Australian Stumpy Tail Cattle Dog is a breed of dog that originated in Australia to herd cattle. It is similar to its cousin the Australian Cattle Dog but with several differences, the most obvious being its naturally "bobbed" tail. The tail is not actually surgically docked. Due to the square body ratio to height, the breed is leggier than the ACD, and does not have the heavy body mass of the ACD. This makes for a more agile dog with tremendous stamina in the fields and pastures. The feet are round with short toes. It has a natural bobtail. The Stumpy Tail Cattle Dog is energetic, watchful, free-spirited, obedient and alert. Brave and trustworthy. Stumpy Tail's are suspicious of strangers, but very loyal to their own families.
