So like all crazy, masochistic dog people, now that my crazy-ass puppy has finally settled in and we've found our groove, it's time to start planning for ruining it with the next dog! LOL This will not happen for at least 1-2 years, but you know, it's never too early to start planning like a big weirdo. So what am I looking for... -Medium+ sized, 40-65lbs -Social to neutral with strange dogs -Social to neutral with strange people -High food and toy drives -High energy -Barking is fine (what's one more?) -Biddable -Coat must be easy - no clipping/real grooming. Long coated is fine as long it's not burr and stick magnet. I don't mind brushing out or shedding, but no fine coats that mat or grow indefinitely, please. -Deterrent appearance -Territorial/protective is big bonus -Physical health important, not just in terms of genetic conditions but also the ability to be fitted up and handle lots of physical work, so athletic as well -AKC or at least UKC reg would be nice, as I really do enjoy my OB and there are no ASCA trials around here Would be looking at OB, Agility, bitework if applicable and I have the time/money, herding if applicable, etc, and just about anything else I find interesting, so a versatile dog is a big plus. Right now I have a few ideas floating... any flavor of Belgian from the right lines could work, maybe a Kelpie... I'm open to dogs outside of the herding group if they fit, as well. Ready? GO!
