Congratulations! What a handsome ACD boy he is!! It's always nice to see an ACD that loves people (I have a rescue like that) it really throws people off that are used to guarding their heels when around one!! :)

Thanks Jenny! Most, not all, of my dogs are that way. The ones that are grumpy tend to 'become' that way if they don't have the right home environment tho. But you know how some breeders are, looks are more important than breeding for good behavior and working traits, so you start with what you get and breed for better behavior and that includes bidability too. Just like sheep, you have to breed for the whole picture/animal, not just one trait. ;-)
