Bailey is a very loving, intelligent companion. She is a cross between extreme guardian nature collie crosses and an extreme prey drive herding and hunting English shepherd. The result is a beautiful balance of traits. She is
very intune with her master and will let her opinion be known but will always respect her master’s wishes. She has worked with a trainer on a few occasions and has visited the farm that she was born on. Bailey has proven that she is capable of moving stock. She works silently and has a loose-eyed upright stance. She displays natural rating ability and a desire to keep the stock calm, which point toward a guardian nature. As she is not on a farm, Bailey has had limited opportunity to display her guardian nature as it pertains to stock.
When she visited a goat farm, she was very curious and gentle with the kids. She is also quite gentle and protective of children. Bailey has been trained not to kill squirrels and birds, but she is not forbidden to give chase.
Bailey’s rule is that birds and squirrels belong in the trees! She is very judgmental about people. If she likes you, she will exuberantly greet you. If she doesn’t know you, she is reserved. And if she doesn’t like you, she won’t
give you the time of day. She gets along well with other dogs.
