How much are red Australian Shepherds? The average price of the Australian Shepherd ranges from $650 to $850. However, an Aussie can cost anywhere between $300 to $1,800+ USD depending on breeder reputation, coat colors, pedigree and location.
Are Red Tri Aussies rare? Red tri-colored Aussies are red and white Aussies with tan markings. Again, the markings tend to define the eyebrows, the sides of the face, and the legs. Like red bi-colored Aussies, they are a lot less common than black bi and tri-colored Aussies, but not as rare as all-red Aussies.
