Whats his story BB?
Mama was a working BC on a farm; daddy was some free spirited drifter who wandered into town. Judging by the litter, probably some sort of staffy/pit type. The puppies were tossed in a trailer and lined up to be disposed of because they would not sell as mixes in farmland. Someone grabbed them and got them to Vermont. A good friend has been fostering him and one littermate (who was placed) and has been great about holding on to him for me and socializing the bejeesus out of him while I make up my mind.

He is going to stay small, he is brave and confident while being super respectful of adult dogs, already swims, fetches and plays tug, lays quietly in a pen in the midst of an agility trial, sits on the sidelines of a herding trial watching quietly, and turns into Drivey Puppy as soon as you start to interact with him. Then goes back to quiet waiting as soon as you stop.

What a gorgeous sounding pup, BB! Getting to experience those things at so young of an age makes a world of difference.

Sounds like a really great mix, especially for what you want. Sounds like Meg will approve of him as well.

Speaking of which . . . no more name help for you until we get some Meg pics

Meg pictures and videos coming soon. A friend taped our runs at the trial today.

I like Nigel, but I'm trying to think of what I would call him mid-course - Ni? Any name needs that short, sharp nickname to go with it.
