The Australian Cattle Dog originated in – you guessed it – Australia!  These dogs were created to herd cattle.  The breed is sometimes called the  Queensland Heeler.   Australian Cattle Dogs with red coats are also called Red Heelers, while blue coated examples of the breed are known as Blue Heelers.  The dog in the pic above has a blue coat.
