…That's what owners of our old fashioned farm collie puppies say. We love the way our farm dogs think, work and nurture!
Montana is off to North Carolina! She will be care take of her new family, be gentle and loving, watch the homestead, and protect the livestock.
Montana lets me know if she thinks something isn’t right, she loves to talk to me, and tell me things. She calls for attention and when alone form the other puppies she is far more calm, and gentle, seems like she wants to be an only dog. She is very biddable, and loves to follow me around. Montana will be a good protector, and guard dog. When properly introduced to a new person she relaxes and says “So they are allowed here? Okay, I’ll love them too if you do!” She looks like her Butcher English shepherd ancestors, her expressive eye, body build, and big cute ears, and full tail. Montana is expected to grow up to be 70lbs.
Duck herding- Montana watches me as I herd, she thinks this is great and says “Let me try!” as she bounds toward the ducks, Montana moved the ducks, trying to put them in a line. she looks back to make sure I’m watching and helping, she really tried to mirror my actions, when I stopped she stopped, she wanted to do the work with me. So we herded the ducks up, and then sat down to watch them, she was very tempted to go back and keep herding them, but stayed at my side. “Good Girl Montana!”
Visiting the calf- Montana liked to see the calf, but she wanted to be by me, then all was good. first she went up to the calf and sniffed him, then she sat cocked her head thinking “What an odd animal, wonder what it’s for?” Montana returned to me and lay down between my legs to watch Joey our calf. she watched him for a long time and then went to check up on him, when she was sure that he was okay Montana came back to sit with me. she thought it was great to follow me around the big brown animal. “Go Montana!”
