Breed: Miniature Australian Shepherd
Height: 9 in
Owner: CJ Fithian
Melbourne is the little dog with the big heart! He has no concept of self-preservation and will work until he drops, attacking every activity head-on, full steam ahead! After some warm-ups and 5 clean “bye” heats in Phoenix, and then 5 test heats in Pahrump, on Sunday, May 1, 2011, Melbourne officially debuted full-time and completed his NAFA FDCh (500 points) in the process! Melbourne is the 2nd member of the Jam-Min’ Aussies crew, and is a blood brother to Sydney. They share the same mom and dad, but born to different litters. Other activities that Melbourne loves to do: Musical freestyle, agility, lure coursing, dock diving, herding, wrestling with his sister, and eating! Oh, and ask him to “count”! Melbourne is owned and extremely loved by CJ Fithian.
