A breeder in southern AL, about 2.5 hours from where I live. First off, I'm not recommending the breed. I simply stated my experiences with him. Second, I am not basing everything on his personality. My comment was not only on him, but the dogs behind him. I've spent hours with all the dogs his breeder owns, and they all have incredible temperaments. Energetic but spastic, friendly without being obnoxious, smart, confident and easy going. All great herders who work sheep and cows.
