Wow, I wish people here understood that. People love Mu (I get it, she's small and cute and has pretty markings) but she does NOT love them back. I think she typifies the ACD temperament pretty well - able to function without me but functions better with me.

TBH there's a tooon of differences in true Australian ACDs and American ACDs, so you may also need to keep that in mind. From what I've learned from hanging out on ACD boards that have members from both N. America and Aus the breed in Aus is much sharper, and more one person than it is here.

I didn't know that but it does seem obvious that they'd be a lot different. I have the derp today. Mu is a lot less tolerant than any ACD I've met around here but has a lot in common with them otherwise. Maybe she'll soften up as she matures.

AuCaDo - The Front Page is the main page for the forums - full of good people with all levels of ACD experience, breeders, rescue folks, those with one or many, and from all over the world. It's a good group, though like all boards it does have its own culture and hot button topics. LOL

That doesn't really sound normal for any ACD I have ever worked with. They usually aren't supposed to be aggressive. Maybe she just needs to go work on a ranch? Sounds like that would benefit her. Sitting in a kennel is not good for the working dogs like ACDs they need a job and not a pet home.
