Nell    CBCA 8370    
DOB: April 23rd, 2010

Nell came to us in  2010 from Bruce Smarta daughter of his Link and Missy.  (ONTARIO, Canada) Link was an outstanding trial dog in his own right and still working full time in his old age, with no health issues.

Nell can be traced back to 3 time US National Champion, Berhow's Nick.

Nell can manage calves although she has
not been trained extensively (due to the timing of our health issues) She is a very smart little dog with a quiet disposition, she can problem solve on her own and is able to figure out things such as how to unlock doors or latches, is easily trained for common behaviors and does not take
a lot of instruction to follow routine, once she knows what you want.  Nell can think things out on her own and understands the feel of how animals move around her, and is quite intuitive.

She has a nice balance and reads her stock, looking for how they behave and interpret thier intentions. She is not afraid to bring you the neigbors cows if she has the opportunity to slip the fence, but also obedient enough that she remembers where she is not allowed to go into areas, to the point that she will stop her daughter from going after animals she has been told to leave alone a few times.  Skeet only had to tell her once that they were to leave the chickens (her first encounter) alone, for her to obey the rules.  She has a good vocabulary understanding and very nice manners.   She is a good mother and very pleasant with other animals such as our cats or kittens.  She is very highly bonded and passes this trait on to her offspring.  Nell is also very good with children, especially the very young and does not get overly pushy or have her face into theirs, often sitting and turning her back and lowering her head near them to be more gentle.  She does not jump on you or roll over to put her feet in your face, but lays or sits nicely beside you.
