Aussie Coat Color Website

Lisa McDonald’s “Field Guide to Australian Shepherd Coat Color” website has moved!

ASHGI has hosted this valuable breed resource for many years.  It is chock-full of coat color information not only on accepted colors but also the odd things that pop up from time to time.  It’s also got dozens of pictures to help you recognize different aspects of coat color.

Since ASHGI redesigned its site, Lisa’s site had to be moved to a  new address.  If you’ve used the site before, it’s here for you to visit again.  If you’ve never looked at the site – check it out!

Here’s what ASHGI’s done for Aussies!

  • Provides the best Aussie health and genetics information source available.
  • Conducts surveys that inform the breed community and attract research.
  • Raised over $180,000 for epilepsy, cancer, and cataract research.
  • Offers the largest collection of open-access Aussie health data anywhere

We do all of this with volunteers and donations.  What have YOU done to help ASHGI help the Aussie?
