Australian Cattle Dog (ACD or Cattle Dog), is a breed
of herding dog originally developed in Australia for droving cattle over
long distances across rough terrain. In the 19th century, New South
Wales cattle farmer Thomas Hall crossed the dogs used by drovers in his
parents' home county, Northumberland, with dingoes he had tamed. The
resulting dogs were known as Halls Heelers. After Hall's death in 1870,
the dogs became available beyond the Hall family and their associates,
and were subsequently developed into two modern breeds, the Australian
Cattle Dog and the Australian Stumpy Tail Cattle Dog.

Bocchetta Plush Toys is a
family operated business, proud of a heritage that began in a small toy
shop in the town of Arona, Italy. Today you will find us throughout much
of Europe, Australia, and we are fast finding new friends in the
Americas. A great portion of our success is due to the far reaching
imagination and meticulous craftsmanship of our founder, Giovanni
1948, Giovanni Bocchetta turned his creative passions to toy-making.
Armed with the skills of the traditional Italian craftsman, Giovanni
tested the limits of his imagination as he set out to make the softest,
most lifelike toys a child will ever know.
Year by year he expanded
the business, carefully staying true to the concepts of realistic design
and quality craftsmanship.
In 1992, the family moved
their main office to Australia's Gold Coast. Today Bocchetta Plush Toys
remains an example of imagination and skill passed from father to son.
Bocchetta Plush Toys are
manufactured in one of the three carefully selected and controlled
Bocchetta toy factories, using the technology and know-how that we
successfully have developed over the last 62 years.
