I am not familiar with Idaho Shags. Are they similar to Australian Shepherds ?

Yes. Some they are a mix of Boarder Collie and Airedale.
Some are 1/4 boarder collie 1/4 australian shepherd, and 1/2 airedale.

They sound interesting and I'd like to see them work. I can't imagine an airdale getting his head down low enough to heel a cow so they might be more of a heading dog?

Didn't Northern Rancher get one when he was in
the US for one of Ty's rodeos?
Seems like it, but I can't remember where the dog came from.

I'd like to see them work as well. I know years back some friends had
a good bearded dog........and I was never sure what it was.......

Let us know if you find one, MtNick. And post some pictures, please.

Im still trying to find one. I did post a pic of one a buddy had but I cannot find a way to attach it to our conversation. She is in the photo gallery under horses and dogs, I titled it shaggy cow dog.

This dog was very gritty. For the most part she was a get behind dog some times she would go to the head but very rarely, maybe she had more collie than airedale, shoot maybe no airedale at all but that is what was told. Take a look at the pic and tell me what you think.
Thanks.

I've seen dogs that look like this, but not that black.

I have friends who raise and know of different kinds of dogs.

I'll send them an email and see if I can find out anything for you.

I did a google search and found this:

it looks current. If that isn't what you want, they might know of
more Idaho Shag dogs. Hope this helps!

Waiting to hear back from the folks that know about different cow dogs.
