Gorgeous!!! You are such a good photographer. Now I want an ACD.
Do it! Get a workingline! Be prepared to fall in love!
But they are not social outside of their families. I would have to get two puppies. An ACD and an Aussie. You are an enabler.
That is what they say but here is my inexperienced opinion on what I see in Dlila. Right now she is super sociable to the point that I think she will retain a good deal of that trait. She does NOT like anything that she perceives as violent actions and will try to bring it under control. I suspect it might extend to humans with maturity, but maybe not. Aussie and ACDs will be a good match to raise together.
It’s also possible she is atypical. I met a 6 month old ACD at a local fair and he was not at all social with me or my dog. He was owned by the president of a dog club. She used to have Aussies and I’m not sure why she changed breeds. She said he needs a lot of socialization.
