Hips OFA Good
Elbows OFA Normal
Etch is our first ASDR aussie. She is a very small Aussie and will fit in well with our dogs, allowing us to expand our standard aussie lines. Once I saw her pedigree and looks, I knew she would be an amazing addition to our breeding program. She is an absolutely beautiful girl, inside and out. Etch was 2 years old when we got her and hadn't left the farm much, so she is adjusting to a busy life now. She thought the leash would kill her at first, but has come along amazingly fast in her training. She loves the kids and swimming. She is amazingly well behaved with kids and puppies. She is the best babysitter around and so gentle with babies of all species. She thinks clicker training and trick training are the greatest things on earth and is very food motivated. She is quick to learn, but is almost too food motivated so she can have a hard time thinking if good treats are around. She naturally stays with us when off leash and loves being with her people. She does not love all strangers but once she warms up she is amazingly sweet. She believes she is a big lap dog at heart. She has the typical aussie personality, bouncy, happy, very playful, and a complete clown. She will play with a disc and ball occasionally, but can be inconsistent in toy drive. Hopefully, she will be competing in the future as she adjusts to traveling more. She is too small to compete in Conformation as an Australian Shepherd, but will try her hand at dock dog, agility, trick dog, and possibly other sports.
