There are many theories about the origin of the Aussie (Australian Shepherds). However, it is dead certain that it comes from the USA and not from Australia as indicates the name of the breed. The creation of this breed has been mainly influenced by dogs of Basque sheepherders, who came to America from Australia. The Indians called the Australian Shepherds as Ghost-Eye dogs.  Aussie eyes ma y be any shade of black, green, blue, brown, marbled...  or they may have two different coloured eyes.  The dogs may have any eye colour irrespective of the colour of the coat. You can find more information about breed and genetics of coat colors at separate website.
