Aussalier Breed Appearance
The Aussalier crossbreed of dog is so new that a standard has not been set, and there can be many variations even among the same litter. They are fairly small dogs, typically between 13 and 16 inches tall and weighing between 16 to 35 pounds, and both of them tend to be slightly longer than they are tall. The skull should not be domed, but the top of the head could be rounded or flat. The muzzle, eyes, and ears of these hybrids could vary quite a bit. The muzzle itself can range from the full muzzle of the Cavalier with well developed but not pendulous lips to the slightly longer, tapering muzzle with close fitting lips of the Australian Shepherd. The alert eyes of the Australian Shepherd are almond shaped and come in brown, blue, and combinations of the two, in sharp contrast with the signature eyes of the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, large, round eyes in a melting dark brown that portray their sweet and gentle nature. Their ears tend to sit high on their head, but they may fold forward, or they might hang from the side, and their coats could be either straight or wavy, silky or weather-resistant, single coated or double.
