Aussie Wheaten Breed Appearance
Aussie Wheatens can vary widely in appearance due to their “newness” and currently unstable breeding. They often look like a leaner and slightly smaller Australian Shepherd with some Terrier-esque features. They have a medium to large build and are square proportioned, with longer legs than a standard Shepherd. The breadth of color combinations within the Australian Shepherd breed account for the Aussie Wheaten’s wide range of coat patterns and colors. They have a slightly wavy, medium to long coat, in tri-color combinations of brown, black, beige, gray, and white, with darker shades around the snout and ears. Some even have light Aussie markings. Aussie Wheatens have a square-ish head, medium oval eyes, slightly tapered snout, and large nose. They tend to wear an alert and eager expression. Their paws are compact with thick pads for tramping outside, and the tail is medium length with a full, sometimes feathered coat.
