Default Australian Cattle Dog Breeder?

A friend of mine is looking for an ACD, she's had 4 ACDs in the past but she's been saying most of the breeders she can find now are purely show breeders that don't do anything else with their dogs and the type of dog is changing in a way that she doesn't like.

She's looking for working lines with a slightly less stocky body (she says this is introduced through show breeding and that if you visit farms down south, most of their ACDs are a bit more slender with longer legs). She also prefers a bit less heavy and bulky, with not such a blocky head (she says this has also increased from show breeding).

She doesn't care if the breeders show or not (actually prefers no show titles), but the breeder must work either on a farm, or prove themselves in trials.

I did a quick google search but couldn't come up with anything, do you guys know anyone? Or where she could contact?


Edit: she's looking for this type

The AuCaDo forum (http://www.aucado.us/forums/) is also a great resource - they'll be able to recommend good rescues if she's open to that as well.

She may also want to look into Stumpy Tailed Cattle Dogs - they tend to be very similar to ACDs temperament-wise but are leggier.

Actually she's thinking about switching over to stumpies because most stumpy breeders are working breeders. But she's so attached to ACDs she thought she'd give it a try first. See if she can find the type she likes that actually work their dogs.

Does she need an intact dog? If not, even if she needs a working dog, I do know of several rescues that can herding test their fosters if needed and rescue often sees the much leggier ACDs.

No she doesn't need an intact dog but she wants some pretty specific things and also she lives in Canada (BC) so I don't know how many rescues are willing to adopt that far. Many breeders allow their puppies to be shipped I think.

Rescue or not I would contact Stephanie she may have some leads as she is in Canada with ACDs. At least I think she'll be open to helping. lol

Yes Stephanie can certainly help I'd think - she's in Ontario. She's also on AuCaDo as that's how I met her myself!
