The Australian Stumpy Tail Cattle Dog is thought to be the first dog breed to be bred in Australia sometime around the 1840's. They were bred to be a hard-working dog with a great amount of stamina to be used as work dogs on ranches among sheep and cattle. This breed tends to be very alert and watchful, making them a dog that is easy to train and a great dog to have as a working dog. The Australian Stumpy Tail Cattle Dog actually predates the Australian Cattle Dog having been bred to specifically have a docked tail although occasionally one will be born with a longer tail. There isn't much in the way of written records to find out why exactly this breed was bred this way but from what little bit of information we do have it seems as though maybe the purpose was to create a more trainable dog than the wild dingoes that were indigenous to Australia. Because we know that this particular breed was never truly wild, we can assume that they were always fed by humans and most likely survived on a diet of human food scraps including meats and carbohydrates. This type of dog does require a diet that is high in carbohydrates because they are so high energy, but depending on the type of carbs given to the dog this diet may not have been great for a dog with a sensitive stomach if the diet was high in processed carbohydrates.

This breed came very close to extinction in the by the 1980's but the National Australian Kennel Club has been successful in their efforts to bring the breed back in recent years in Australia. The Australian Stumpy Tail Cattle Dog is very similar to the Australian Cattle Dog but it does have longer legs. One of the first recipients of the AKC's Canine Paw of Courage Award was a Stumpy named Betcha from the Vermont Sheriff's Department. This dog breed does carry the gene for deafness so this needs to be tested when the dogs are puppies. Despite the fact that dog owners are more aware of their pet's dietary needs, picking the proper dog food for a pet with a sensitive stomach can still be difficult. Certain ingredients in pet food including some vitamins, minerals, nutrients and fiber can worsen the woes of a sensitive stomach in a dog. Sadly, industrial pet food brands are not legally required to reveal details about the quality or grade of ingredients on their dog food labels. For that reason, if your dog has a sensitive stomach, discovering the best dog food for them can be a stressful experience.
