I always like to encourage people to seriously consider getting their Aussie from a rescue. There are so many wonderful dogs in desperate need of a loving home like yours. Remember to always get your dog from a rescue or a reputable breeder and never from a "back-yard breeder" or pet store. Here you will find listings of Rescue Organizations and of Aussies in need of rescue.
