My dog Goran is the embodiment of perfection for any big-dog lovers out there! He is a mixed breed from a female Collie and a male Karakachan (he weighted 80kg!!) and has inherited the best of both breeds. He is larger than a typical Collie but has the mane of one, a beautiful light brown, ginger and white, with slightly shorter hairs than a Collie. He is really friendly, loveable and playful; his favourite thing is to stand on his hind legs with his front legs wrapped around my waist - a great hugger, although hugs come with muddy paws as he is an outside dog. He is incredibly intelligent and I regret not giving him any training, but I think he could learn very quickly. He might be even a bit too smart, as he likes playing tricks on me every time I try to put him on a leash. Once on the leash though, he is very mild and obedient, never gives me hard time when I walk him around. He doesn't bark much but readily warns be when there is someone at the door. He can be clingy as he likes following me around, but he also likes wandering off sometimes, definitely a free soul. He gets along with my cats and never looks for trouble. Being a big dog, he can get a bit too rough when he is in playing mood and gets excited, but he has never been aggressive or malicious. Overall, an amazing dog to have, I love him to bits!
