I have a 2.5 month ACD little girl named Fly. She is the smartest dog I have ever known. In two weeks she has learned to be house broke, sit, lie down, high five, crawl, and sit up. She does have a lot of energy, but has learned faster then any dog I've ever met.

We rescued a smooth coat, blue merle colored, ACD in Oct(08) when she was 7 weeks old. She is now about 8 months old, currently weighs about 25 lbs. and is named Jasmine. She is an awesome dog. She has very high-energy and is always trying to please us. She has bonded strongly with my husband but will listen to me when I make her. We live in town but have a large fenced in yard for her. She loves to play fetch and go walking/jogging with me. She does nip at and try to herd our other dog, who is a German Shepard Mix and he doesn't tend to care for that much. She gets bored easily and she keeps us going all of the time. I know I never would have bought this breed but we love our dogs and wouldn't trade them for anything now that we have them!

I have a Blue Heeler named Bob and he's amazing. We found him in Utah and he's been a great companion and very special to my father. Even my mom (who tries to act like she hates our pets) loves him.

And though I am a big lover of the kennel mutt, I have to admit that I'm becoming very attached to the Queensland Blue Heeler. I've not met another dog (save but one) with so much loyalty and personality.
