Maggie Mae has worked sheep, cattle and poultry. She is a great dog on cattle but has had to learn to be more gentle with sheep. She always has her master’s back and likes to drive stock away rather than gather.
Maggie Mae grips on the hock to tell the stock to move, and never barks when herding, but she uses quiet growling to get their attention.
She is attentive to the rules, watches gates, and returns escapees to the pen. She is more gentle on babies – doesn’t even try to move them. Loves and “shepherds” them.
Maggie Mae is pretty laid back, barks to announce the arrival of strangers but never bothers anyone when they get out.
She sounds like an awesome all round Farm dog with a lot of heart.

Sounds like she’s got a lot of oomph, well, balanced with the desire to nurture.
