Here is why I think we can provide a good home:

lm looking for a dog who doesn’t mind lazing around most of the time but will help out when needed, I’ve had 2 heading dogs in the past, at different times, both in their twilight yrs, sadly they’ve passed, my animals are very quiet but can be trying at times a a helping hand is good, I do have a kelpie but she won’t look at the cows, she stands behind me, great easy life garenteed,.
