Huntaway

a type of dog found in New Zealand, where they use barking sheepdog breeds or types to round up sheep and return them to the hills; that is the dogs drive sheep away from the shepherd, instead of the customary activity of bringing them to the herder. There is not a recognized breed for the purpose; most are Airedale crossbreds.
