Aussie dogs?

Postby pat » Sun Aug 30, 2015 10:55 am

I was given a 6 month old Austrian Sheppard. I usually raise hunting dogs, had labs,spaniels and a few others.
but, never an Aussie.

I know they are herding dogs. but, would like more info on these type of breeds.

he was very hyper when I first got him (aug 26) however, each day is getting better and is really calming down.
he herds my chickens :lol: he tried the donkeys, but,that didn't work out real well for him.

he has lots of property to run, which is a good thing and is helping. my beagle is finally starting to play with him.
my raccoon likes him. my oldest fox actually attacked him on the first meeting. didn't do the second time yet.
poor dog was afraid of my fox. I really have my work cut with my fox.

when I get a chance, I will post a picture.

Sounds like he's settling in fairly well. I don't know a whole lot about hearing breeds though.

he is actually really a great dog. has not even been a week, and he is very much at home. he likes my other two dogs.

I don't know much either, but, guess I will be learning :lol:

actually, Ana gave me this dog, she said her two raccoons bonded and didn't seem to bother with Leo.
she also has a cat that was very afraid of leo.

when I get a chance, will post some pictures.

We're hoping he can bring some sunshine for you guys, he's so vibrant and energetic
and goofy. We're looking forward to coming out to see him!

Stasi is..I don't know. She's better on and off. We've been to the vet over and over,
even got a second opinion. She's stressed out and depressed, and there are so many
things that might be causing it, we're driving ourselves crazy. The remodeling will be
finished up tomorrow, I hope, I hope. With Leo away and no more power tools, maybe
she'll get back to normal.

Stasi is the best friend I've ever had, so this has been really hard. I can't thank Pat enough
for taking him on. : thank:

ana,

It was my pleasure taking Leo in. I thought at first he was going to be a very hyper dog, the more he adjusted and got to run,
the better he got. he fits in well with my other two. He has quite the personality.

I still need to work on him and daryl though. daryl attacked Leo. For a little fox,he sure is brave.
Leo is great with all the other animals. he's funny when he herds the chickens. :lol:

Leo is doing great. he plays with Lucy, Anna and George. I am so glad about that. it gets all three of them moving more.

here is a few pictures I took of him this morning.

I love his color! We just got an aussie-mix puppy (Epsilon, better known as Oopsie) and he loves to herd the other dogs we have, much to their irritation. He's FULL of energy and gets multiple walks, but is still full of energy. He's REALLY smart though and is learning fast.

I'm glad your dog is doing well. : )
