I couldn’t really tell from the picture. I thought it was one or the other. High Energy either way. Is he a “working dog” as in currently working cattle or something like that?
I have a Great Pyrenees which is a heard guard dog. He’s the best guard dog you could ever want. Soft spoken and gentle when all is well. But in the middle of the night when something is wrong…HE WILL WAKE YOU OUT OF A DEAD SLEEP.
Anyway your dog is beautiful from what I could tell. Love Australian Shepherds.
