BASC was formed in January of 1997 and is an affiliate of
the Australian Shepherd Club of America, ASCA.

BASC has a varied membership, which include long-time breeders, and active obedience, herding and agility enthusiasts, as well as new recruits. We also have members who do not own Australian Shepherds but are active in performance events.
BASC's goals include the traditional pastimes of friendly, casual, yet professionally administered ASCA shows and trials.

We welcome new members!

Introduction and General Appearance

First and foremost, the Australian Shepherd is a true working stockdog, and anything that detracts from his usefulness as such is undesirable. The most important breed characteristics are overall moderation in size and bone, balance with correct proportions, and sound movement.

The Australian Shepherd is a well-balanced dog of medium size and bone. He is attentive and animated, showing strength and stamina combined with unusual agility. Slightly longer than tall, he has a coat of moderate length and coarseness with coloring that offers variety and individuality in each specimen. An identifying characteristic is his natural or docked bobtail. In each sex, masculinity or femininity is well defined.
