An Aussie breeder I know has a litter coming up this fall. I keep bugging the them about deposit amounts and all those details one wants to know when they're looking for puppy. :yikes: Sawyer is getting older and still acts like a young dog most days, so I'd like to get another pup while he's still jovial enough to help me train. That's another concern I have though--I work ridiculous, unpredictable hours at the dealership. My bf has a more stable schedule and since he's in the restaurant industry, it's usually on the opposite of myself, so the pup shouldn't be home alone too much. I'm just worried that I won't have enough time to train up the pup to the standard I'm used to with Sawyer, because Sawyer was able to go to everywhere and to work with me for the first few years I had him, so we got to be super bonded. On top of that, this breeder is mostly show dogs, though from seeing her posts and pictures over the years about her dogs and talking with some other people who have multiple dogs from her, they sound like they could be pretty much everything I want in a dog as far as retaining brains and being stable. I'm a little concerned about the amount of coat though.
