Buddy was an adorable dog. Had a lot of coloring of the cattle dog but build like a aussie. Her previous owner had her as a lead heard dog but, unfortunately, the owner was a drunk and shot her 7 times with a BB gun. And that was when she came to us.
Buddy was a sweet dog. Always loving and happy. She always chased squirrels in the yard. We figured she lived with cats in the barn of the previous owner. She use to cross her paws like a cat. She loved to go hunting and hiking. And she loved "herding" us kids around when we were getting rambunctious. She was a very active dog.
She was a great mother dog to our puppy that we got a few years after her. I would assume Buddy had a litter or two.
Buddy was the perfect active family dog for me. Great with kids and loved the outdoors.
