I’m looking forward to this cross. Bear is a stronger personality but has a fun sense of humor. Dot is a fast athlete. Even very pregnant she can leap and touch her chin on a 6′ fence.
Bear – DM carrier, clear all else. OFA Good, elbows normal.
Dot – clear panel . OFA excellent, elbows normal.
I expect this cross to be strong on the heels. Bear and Dot seem to enjoy pasture and pen chores. I haven’t worked Dot as much as I have liked but she has done some nice natural work on non dog broke 500# calves. She has a natural sense of group that is easy to work with. Bear is a stronger dog on the head . I think I’ll get a nice mesh of athletic working dogs in this cross.
