This is Jessie... I totally agree. I bought a BC from working lines because I want a dog that does what it was meant to do. If I wanted a fluffy froo froo dog, then I wouldn't have chosen a dog that is bred to work. I disagree with just breeding for the "shell" of a dog... which ends up watering down the working abilities and also limits the gene pool. Also, Rory works stock... but he's also friendly with people who are non threatening. He's not fearful or aggressive with anyone or any dogs that I've seen. He ignores other dogs when he's working, but interacts well with people and dogs in all situations.
