Short Hair And Pointy Ears?
I have an Australian Shepherd puppy who is about 10 months old. I bought him from a farm, and he came from a small litter of Aussie's when he was about 8 weeks. When he was about 4 months old his ears perked up.
At 10 months now, he has pointy ears and is short haired. His undercoat is coming in right now around his rear quarters, and it's getting a little longer. His neck mane is coming in a tiny bit. His tail has always been longer. He has not been neutered yet.
Is this all semi normal for an Aussie? Or is there a possibility that he's a mix? And does neutering have anything to do with the dogs hair maturing? He's a sweetheart and totally energetic. I'm just curious if he's pure.
