There is nothing more adorable than a puppy, and there is no more adorable puppy than a Bluey. The Australian Cattle Dog, colloquially known as a Bluey, short for Blue Heeler. The name comes for their silver blue coat, and their genetic predisposition to nip at the heels of cattle (or any moving creature).
Fiercely loyal, selectively bred to guard the tuckerbox at the back of the drove, an Australian Cattle Dog can be summed up in one word as reliable. Inspiration and function when it came to this tapestry, was exactly that. This unique weave, the first of its kind, is a medium weight and the DNA for many others of its type yet to come. Reliable, Original, and a go to is how this piece will function in any wardrobe. Perfect mid-season with a little extra grunt for the cooler months, the Australian Cattle Dog Pup, or the Bluey as we call it, like the pup, will find its owner, not the other way around.
