The early Australian names for the cattle dog were Queensland Heelers or Blue Heelers. It carried the name Queensland heeler for the place from which it was bred. The cattle dog standard evolved from the Dingo. Even today the resemblance to the Dingo is evident. Early requirements for the dog were to chase, herd and have the courage to challenge cattle. Though not a good breed for young children, it is loyal to its owner and family.
