I've seen tons of Australian cattle dogs / blue heelers since moving to Columbia City. They seem to be one of the most popular breeds around here! I'm curious about what draws people to them. Do they handle the weather around here well? Are they protective of your house/family? Are they good with children? I've always read that they were quite high-energy working dogs, but many of the ones I've seen have seemed quite mellow. We're looking into getting a second dog in the future and were thinking of looking into this breed a bit more, so any comments are welcome. Thanks!
Our Columbia City housemate wants an Australian Cattle dog pup this year b/c a) they are smart & very trainable b) he can train it to do search and rescue volunteering with him and c) it will herd our chickens and keep them in our yard! Can't wait!
