I was rather repulsed by the default Australian Shepherd provided by the game, with its long, fluffy neck, tiny head, and terrible coat color. But fret no more! I have completely remade its shape and provided four, yes, FOUR different coat varieties from scratch. Introducing the new and improved tricolor(black), red, blue merle, and red merle Australian Shepherds.





Enjoy!

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the sim to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file.
2. Select the .sim file you got from extracting.
3. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\SavedSims folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game, enter Create-a-Sim, and save a sim to the sim bin to create this folder, rather than doing so manually. After that you can close the game and put the .sim file in SavedSims
4. Once the .sim file is in SavedSims, you can load the game, and look for your sim in the premade sims bin in Create-a-Sim.

Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

Makes me wish I had Pets! I haven't seen EA's Aussies, but it sounds like whomever designed them didn't, you know, look at pictures. Yours are very nice! Good job on those coats, too!

I'm having the same problem. I downloaded and installed it into SavedSims. I tried finding it in-game, and tried uploading it through the game launcher, neither worked.

I'm not quite sure how to help you; it should go into the Saved Sims folder and appear in-game.

I believe this is among the most beautiful breed of dog there is and your Sims 3 likeness of them is just amazing! I have used these dogs in many Sims 3 families (they usually end up with a pair of them) and, as I had to come re-download all my things, thought I'd drop a comment and let you know how appreciated they are! The only thing I do admit to changing is to give them long tails as I'm not a fan of that docked tail look.

Thank you! for the time and effort it must have taken to make these animals look so amazing... not just in your pictures but in the game!!!

Thank you! Just a little personal note, I'm getting an aussie soon, and I gasped when I saw this. The orginal aussie on sims3 is butt-ugly.. Thanks :)
