ACD-L the Australian Cattle Dog Listserv

ACD-L, the Australian Cattle Dog Dog Mailing List, allows ACD owners and enthusiasts to communicate by email with hundreds of people worldwide who share a common interest in this wonderful Herding Breed. Every email message sent to the list address (ACD-L@APPLE.EASE.LSOFT.COM) is relayed out to all the subscribers on the list (currently well over 1,000 members!). In this way, anyone with email access to the Internet can exchange stories, questions, suggestions, tips and other information about the breed. It is not necessary that you have full Internet access to participate; if you can send and receive email, you can be a member of ACD-L !!
