The Australian Retriever is a mixed breed dog–a cross between the Australian Shepherd and Golden Retriever dog breeds. Loyal, intelligent, and friendly, these pups inherited some of the best traits from both of their parents. You can find these mixed breed dogs in shelters and breed specific rescues, so remember to always adopt! Don’t shop if you’re looking to add one of these pups to your home! If you’re looking for a devoted family dog who’s also smarter than your average pooch, the Australian Retriever could be a perfect addition to your household. The mixed breed loves children and is quick to form long-lasting and loving bonds with the humans in their life. Just be aware that the Australian Retriever is one of the most energetic dogs around–so you’ll need to be able to commit to providing lots of exercise and play time and have a suitably spacious living arrangement.
