Delta will go above and beyond to please, she is very intense and her intelligence level Will astonish you. Delta will do nothing but what you ask of her. She will watch your every move in wait for the moment you will give her a command.
Delta has learned to do what I ask of her with no formal training. She just jumped in and started working with me by listening to my voice commands and gestures. From penning cattle, splitting cattle, pushing cattle on horseback, moving horses into several corrals, to rounding up and pinning ducks and chickens, she works with ease and confidence!. Delta is small, quick and extremely agile. She is very correct in her conformation with arched toes and a great top line. She can jump very high like a frisbee dog and yet stretch out flat on the ground to swiftly get under a fence panel. Her focus is like no other, in that she will sit all day watching a cows every movement waiting for you to say go. Dogs, kids, etc. can run by, she will not stray from that focus to go to them. AS her only concern is pleasing you.
Delta is truly one of a kind and it shows!
Delta always takes care of our animals.
Delta is Genetically tested CLEAR of NHEJ1 Collie eye anomaly and CLEAR of HSF-4 Hereditary cataracts.
With Delta's pups, you get a highly intuitive dog that is there immediate when you need them. They take almost no training and just seem to know what you want and need. They are extremely devoted to their person and respond only to you. They are very expressive and almost human like in their thoughts and actions. They are an exceptional dog to have by your side. When you move, they move, they will lay by the bathroom door until you come out or under the kitchen table watching your every move. They will automatically, with no training protect you and watch over your family.
Yet, with these puppies, they bond to only one person, you. They will love on the kids, play with them and watch over them, yet always have their eye on you and prefer to only listen to you.
Delta, what an incredible dog! From day one, this dog has been amazing! She is extremely loyal! Unbelievably smart! She focuses on your every movement, laying in wait for that moment when you need help or saving. This girl will fulfill your every thought, she reacts the instant you ask! She is willing and wanting to do anything for you!
She is extremely cowy and loves to move chickens, sheep, hay string, buckets, anything you need moved on the ranch. She is always ahead of you checking the trail, thru brush and across hills to move cattle. This girl will ride in your saddle, or on the front of the quad with you to go do chores. She will sit on your feet under the kitchen table, or follow you all day long on the ranch.
Delta is extremely protective of us and the children and will not allow anyone to get close to us or come on our property unless we tell her it's ok. When we go to the front door, Delta gets in between us and the door "talking to us" before going in, once we open the door she runs in to check things out, she comes back to the door and "talks" to let us know its ok to go in, coaching us in with a back and forth gesture!
On the flip side, Delta loves to play with the kids. She is up for anything, whether it's swimming in the trough with the kids, climbing trees or running ahead to clear the road while they ride bikes. She will give hundreds of kisses if allowed and follow her little people everywhere to keep watch of them.
Delta is also helpful, she collects anything left out the night before by the children or us ie; baseballs, work gloves, and piles it unchewed by the back porch! She is awesome!
Delta is very calm, laying right were your working all day watching over you until you move, then she moves. As for a house dog, she is very quiet and prefers to stay out of the way under the table. She will watch your every move even in the house as she is more than loyal to her person. She does not need exercise and is very respectful when around you or in your home. She lives only to please you!
Delta is unquestionably from the best bloodlines of a true working Australian Shepherd you will find. You can read it in her Pedigree and see it in her. This girl has the top bloodlines of titled and hall of fame grandparents.
What an amazing Aussie, she's got you're back! !
