...that just put me off from ever having a wire-haired/bearded breed.

It may have had something to do with him swimming in salt water daily and delicately lapping up fresh cow patty afterward.

Well...after reading this thread and looking at some websites, I've put the English Shepherd on the list of breeds I need to learn more about.

I did notice they seem to be used on cattle quite a bit. Do they have the same kind of DA issues that other cattle dogs have?

Well, my puppy is home and I am in love!

She was awesome on the 3 hour car ride home, slept quietly on my lap, did her business right away during stops and then went right back to sleeping when it was time to go again. We stopped at a Pet Valu on the way home to pick something up and she was very social, not nervous at all - thinks everyone is there to see her.

She's really quiet in her crate at night. We're on the third day and no mistakes in the house. She's really quiet in general - I'm so used to my ACD, it's nice to have a dog that will lie with you when you're tired. She's already turning into my "English Shadow" as the breeder puts it - she's currently sleeping right under my chair. She watches me constantly and seems very intelligent.

And while we're on the coat discussion, she has the thickest, most plush puppy coat! I love it, I'm constantly petting her.

Unfortunately no pictures yet because I realized the morning of that I left my camera at the barn (sigh) but I just got it back this morning so I'll take her out this afternoon for a photoshoot.

Here she is! I think we've finally decided on the name "Quinn".











I'll probably post some more in Dog Pictures.

Squeeee! So between the Border Collie named Quinn, the Koolie named Traveler, and your squishy puppy, I want a herding breed

I hope that you enjoy taking pictures, because we will demand more. Many, many more as she continues to grow. Get me hooked, please. I think that this would be a sensible choice for my family.
