A bit about Sam’s personality:

Sam is a lovely natured, easy going, friendly, good looking dog. He’s been owned and worked by a female owner his entire life as we bred him from my original bitch “Buff”
He has spent his life on a Sheep and Beef Hill country farm in eastern Taranaki. He has been great working sheep and cattle and still is, although a little slower. Always wants to please, is happy and such a good companion. He would make a great pet or smaller tasks on a lifestyle property or dairy farm or perhaps another lady wanting a mature dog with experience to support her other dogs. We are retiring so unable to take our dogs with us. I will only consider a genuine person offering a good home and require references and new home environment etc. He works on whistle and voice commands. Have lots more photos if interested
