Does anyone have ACD's? Would you recommend them as a farm dog? Pros? Cons? Pictures? I have been wanting a dog on the farm that can be outside with me and I won't have to worry about them getting stepped on. (I have small chihuahuas who don't know that cattle shouldn't be messed with) I'd like a dog that can ride the 4wheeler with me or go with me when I go horse back riding. That can help with the cattle. The absolute must is he must get along with our current small dogs and my fiance's mix dog and our farm cat.
Does an ACD possess these traits? I'm looking at puppies and want to make sure I'm making the best choice for me, the farm, my family and our way of life.
Here are the puppies I looked at yesterday and am suppose to go back and look at more closely today. Today I want to see them playing and interacting together. I'm leaning towards both puppies on the left of the pictures.
I will try to take better pictures when I go back out today.
