We imported Lottie from the Ukraine. We chose her due to our love of her sire who is a multi-champion in conformation, herding, agility and more. Our interest in dogs that can DO and be pretty made getting her genetic line pretty exciting to us. We're hoping she makes us some fantastic babies!
Sadly, our plan to show Lottie in conformation here has been nixed, she would most certainly not be a happy girl doing conformation shows. However, we are planning on getting her into the competitive herding training in her 3rd year. She will excel at that and is more in-line with her temperament and personality. Please excuse her terrible pic, she was in a wonky growth phase there.
Lottie has a lovely way of movement for a herding dog and a developed off-switch. She's a bit of a dominant girl and is in a very 'testing' phase of herself right now. As she had such a terrible time coming over to the US and some health drawbacks due to acclimating to the changes here, we've held off in pushing her too far. But, she's good to go now and we're back on track with our sweet and super sassy girl.
