Sue is a top notch cow dog who moonlights as a chicken guardian
and ace frisbee player. She is a natural low heeler who is
always ready to work but waits patiently until she is needed.
She varies her intensity to suit her owners' command. She
has many tools including crouching, using, eye and also body
posturing and shouldering. She works close and seldom
barks. As she matures, she is becoming more gentle with
poultry. Peggy Sue is very curious about the calves but
this behavior is not encouraged because it upsets the cows.
She chases coyotes away from the herd. She seeks order and
once chased the neighbors' bull back home and put him in his
pen. Peggy Sue is a territorial dog who stays home, chases
away predatory birds, and regularly patrols the perimeter.
She announces the arrival of strangers and resents intrusion of
strange dogs. Peggy Sue trees prey and routinely hunts
pests. She is a very willing fighter with large or vicious
prey. She knows squirrels don't belong on the porch!
She has a mind of her own, but is fairly soft and responds well
to her owners.
