This is a litter that I have been waiting a long time to produce and am very excited about!
Flint is a fantastic ranch dog. He is a very thoughtful, independent worker who always knows where he needs to be to get the job done. I rarely have to tell him what to do as he quickly evaluates the situation and assists us in putting the cattle where they need to be. He is great on the range, in the mountains, and working corrals. Long days of work don’t phase him, he doesn’t have any quit in him! Flint is tough on cattle, yet can easily adjust his working style for calves, sheep, and ducks. He is mostly a head dog, but will heel if he needs to. He is very biddable and aims to work with his handlers to accomplish the task at hand. Flint is extremely patient with other animals and will never start a fight. He takes care of bottle calves and is protective of his property, though is friendly to strangers if I let him know that they are welcome. He has a great “off switch” and happily lays around the house! I have never met a dog with the intelligence, intuition, and loyalty equal to Flints!
Bounce came to us as an adult dog with a beautiful trialing record! Since coming to the ranch, she had easily adjusted to ranch work and moving large herds at a time. She has an excellence sense of group and balance, always keeping the herd together even in difficult terrain. It seems she always knows where we need her to be and how to help us put the herd where we want them. She is very biddable and loves to please her owners! Bounce doesn’t back down from an angry/pushy cow and has a very clean bite. She is happy to work all day and in all weather conditions. At home, Bounce loves to “mother” everything, especially our own baby. She is wary of strangers and protective of her property. This girl is super easy to be around!
Both Flint and Bounce have OFA Good hips and clear genetic panels.
