Mike is a gorgeous red male that came to us from 5H Farms in Montana. He did not have enough confidence or bite to work large numbers of range sheep. Renea had considered breeding Curry to him, so when he went up for sale we jumped at the opportunity. Mike is a very sweet boy that is amazing with people, kids, and dogs. He is amazingly sweet and has beautiful structure. We are hoping to start his training this summer for sports. He absolutely loves to herd and prefers herding the other dogs instead of playing ball or disc. We hope to work on his toy drive and see how he does the next few years.
Mike was raised on a sheep ranch, but lacked the bite required to work large amounts of sheep that are not dog broke. Although stylish when working and lots of herding drive, he lacked the confidence for head to head confrontations needed to work hard stock. Mike may have some training on stock in the future, but it will most likely not be a main focus for him.
