The Total Australian Shepherd:  Beyond The Beginning

This book is a comprehensive history of the Australian Shepherd...Ernest Hartnagle & his daughter Carol Ann Hartnagle-Madsen have collaborated on a new book about Australian Shepherds. Their work begins where all the other Aussie books leave off. It will illustrate key dogs in the Spider Web and promises to be a most exciting and interesting work on the breed. The History Chapter puts the faces with names…They document the past to the present with some never before published photographs and information from early owners of the breed. Instead of telling the reader about the character of an Aussie, they bring the personality to life with anecdotes from actual owners of the foundation bloodlines over the past 50 years…all this and much more!
