I have been reading alot about this short haired Aussie. I too would have believed there was a mix, but it has happened to my litter of 9. Two have been slick haired at birth and both parents registered and long haired. I saw an ad for stud dog with short hair, but would produce long haired pups. What's the deal? Do we have any experts? Please let me know. Thanks.

At some point they might have bred an Australian Cattle dog in there and that's what pops up from time to time.
Cute puppy though.

Many times the adult coat is totally different from the puppy coat. Just wait and see. He's adorable!

Thanks everyone for comments, he is a cute pup he is really growing but his coat looks almost like slick haired dog except his legs , I named him dane he is long legged and reminds me of a greatdane, but he is the most loveable pup he has a real layed back nature, makes a wonderful pet,I have 4 generation pedigree on his parents,so odd, if he does get an aussie coat will let you know, thanks

The herding lines tend to be leaner dogs with shorter hair.
