Aussie Fur

At what age does the fur lengthen on an Aussie? Are there short haired versions of this breed?

It took a good 1 year before my female blue merle aussie's hair got long, however, some aussie's hair does not get long.

We have two Aussies...the oldest is a Black Tri whose hair seemed to grow along with his size. Our younger one is a blue-merle who for some reason had short hair for a long time..My husband kept worrying that it would never grow. Now he is just over a year old and is one giant ball of fluff..with far more hair then the older one. So not sure what is "normal" but that is our experience.

Does the fur stay as soft and fluffy as it is when they are puppies ?

My 6 month red merle Aussie's fur is starting to change from the soft fluffy puppy fur and getting a bit more coarse mostly just on the ridge of his back however, the length isn't changing and is still pretty short. My friends 8 month black merle Aussie had a long full coat by 5-6 months so I wouldn't say theres any standard for when the hair really changes.
