There is a dog two doors down from us, an ACD, and he was great, the gates were always open, he wandered out but never caused trouble. Never tried to attack us or our dogs when we walked past. Just looked at you like "your not my owner so i wont give you the time of day" he was the best looking ACD i have ever seen, big and blue and when the kids in the family rode their bike to te shop, he followed them and guarded them. he was good when you just walked past, but i wouldnt walk into his yard or i think he would rip you to threads.
he would completely ignore anyone that wasnt his family and the only pups they got out of him were crossed with a chi, they kept one but it is vicous and aggresive.
today we asked Brutis's neighbors where he was because we havnt seen him in a while, they said he has died, he had Parvo, his family wasn't much into their dogs as pets and so i dont think he got proper vet care, or his shots etc. i cant believe he is gone, he was only as old as buster, only 2, and he is dead, he was one of the two best behaved dogs i have ever met (the other being my mothers old dog which i want to tell you about sometime,) and now he is gone.
