They look like Australian Kelpies to me. (Also they look adorable yet slightly terrifying.)

You've already gotten the answer but in case you wanted a bit more info and a video...

"Adorable yet slightly terrifying" is a good description of kelpies in general, TBH.

Can confirm they're Kelpies. I owned a chocolate one years ago. Great dogs, super smart working dogs, though the ones on farms tend to look more dingo like these look like show ones which are usually stockier.

I love Kelpies! These are definitely of the European show-line flavor. There is such a dramatic split between show and working lines that the two practically look like different breeds: https://working-kelpie.weebly.com/wk-versus-ak.html
