Introduction: Dash the Australian Cattle Dog

Picture of Dash the Australian Cattle Dog

I designed Dash to resemble a mischievous four month old Blue Heeler (a.k.a. Australian Cattle Dog) puppy. He is about 5 inches tall, and is stuffed with poly-fil, along with some plastic pellets in his tummy to give him some weight. He has the typical Blue Heeler markings, including a "Bentley mark"-the splash of white that Heelers bear on their foreheads. He is an original design, crocheted without the use of a pattern. The inspiration for Dash came from my own puppy, a blue heeler/Australian shepherd cross. I also looked at lots of pictures and videos of these lovable, intelligent dogs for reference. I hope you like him!

Hi.. Is the pattern available. I have three Australian Cattle Dogs (and a Border Terrier) and would love to make a Dash to raise funds for Australian Cattle Dog Welfare UK.

That's soooo cute! I'm looking for a good crochet dog pattern so that I can make a rottweiler, and I think I'll make my own pattern off of this little guy! When I'm finished, I'll see what I can do to show you pictures of it.

Your welcome.

You should try doing a Siberian Husky, I'm sure it would look great :)

I think a Siberian Husky is a great idea; I am definitely going to have to try making one!
