This bronze sculpture was created as a collaborative effort
between the artist and Leslie
Sorensen, who is an Aussie Breeder,
and an ASCA ( Australian Shepherd Club of America) Senior Breeder
Judge. Leslie has been judging Australian Shepherds since 1973 and
currently judges ASCA and AKC specialty events.
did this bronze sculpture in 1985 so that Leslie could show other
breeders what she considered to be essential conformation and type
qualities in Australian Shepherd dogs. The diverse types within
the breed have been combined in this sculpture to exemplify the
ideal show type of Australian Shepherds at that time (1985). Doing
the sculpture was an essential step to take to help establish
an ideal dog.
Australian Shepherds have recently been accepted
to the American Kennel Club in 1993. This sculpture is an
important representation of an ideal dog done during its historic
progression, visit the Australian
Shepherd Home Page for more information. Because this
representation of the Aussie was produced before the AKC accepted
the breed, the bronze sculpture could become a valuable collectable
particularly for breeders of these dogs
The bronze sculpture was used for the Front
cover of the Australian Shepherd Quarterly in the summer of 1986.
