I've got two! Both are boys and came from the same breeder who was a friend of mine. Both of them no one picked and so I took them. They are not from the same litter though. I say their cousins! lol....Ely is a black tri and Saxon is a red tri. Ely is 6 and Sax is 3. They are smart and Ely is very protective.
Im finding that protectiveness is quite common although, Ely is rather extreme, I've met loads that are just loves and very silly. Ely is also very emotional. He is very clingy and whiney. Sax is complete opposite. So laid back, and content to let the world go by....I wish I was more like him! hahaha
I have 4! I LOOOOVE Aussies 3 of mine are minis, although I need to measure the pup, he might be a small standard now haha!
Buddjet is my oldest, he's about 6 years. He's a black tri. He's a good agility dog
Rylie is the next oldest at 1.5 years. He's turning into a good agility dog and a good herding dog. He's a red merle.
Toby the next, he's 9 months, black tri. He's the one who may be a small standard now Future agilty dog?
Roxi is my standard, 6.5 month black tri. She is quite a handful! Will be an awesome agility dog and probably good herding dog!
I have an aussie mix..she is a fabulous dog! very loyal and loves kids. can be a little weary of strangers, though, but protects the family. Kinda funny to see her head drop down before she runs in to play, or when she is watching some thing very closely. lol
I'm actually getting an aussie puppy sometime next week we've already put on hold with the breeder. Im not sure which we're getting there are 2 we can choose from, one is a black tri and the other is a blue merle with green eyes. Itll be our first aussie but ive been researching them like mad and cant wait to get it!
Well, you could do what I did with Fred, although with Fred it was true...Bring home the pup and don't say anything...heheh...when he notices, just say with wide innocent eyes: "But honey! She jumped in my truck!"
Or you could go with "Can you believe that they were going to take this poor preciuos soul to the *gasp here for effect* shelter!?! *eyes tearing up here*.
