Bred to be mini show quality, but grew too tall.  She was shown as a puppy but getting her free from a friend meant we didn't get papers and no clue how she did.  Two of Her half siblings have made it to Westminster and some are european successful.

That sounds expensive.

We get the "gold" treatment including teeth, ears and glands.  So about $100 a pop, but she is so worth it...and no goatheads is wonderful for a family of three who never wear shoes in the house!  DH wears shoes all.the.time.   Foxies coat doesn't gather the desert stuff.  Cassie is the first dog we've had that did.

How are their coats different?

Foxies coat is more like a cattle dogs...rougher, coarser, shorter, short feathers.  Her tummy fur is about half inch long and coarse.  Casses tummy coat and leg feathers can be as long as 3+" and reminds me of a collie coat.  Or irish setters, maybe.  If we pet her a lot behind her ears, the hair will knot up like crazy.

She’s so pretty.  I hate to tell you but she looks full sized.

Per breed standards she is full sized, but per her papers she is a miniature.  The difference less than 2 inches can make!   Breed standard says females up to 17 inches...Cassie comes in just a tad over 18 inches.  Foxie, our other American Shepherd, is at the opposite end of the size spectrum, about 15", is related to Cassie via grandsire, and looks like a fox terrier, not an Aussie. LOL.  Thank you...in person its obvious she's been shown,  she stacks and does the show trot like a pro.

We never saw them together. They have very similar coloring. Adorable!

In real life their coloring is nothing alike.  Cassie is a tri, Foxie is a black n white, this shows the size difference better.
