Colbie is a Australian Shepherd mix dog. She weighs almost sixty pounds now. When we first got her, she weighed 15 pounds. She's a shelter dog. We got her as a puppy from Tennessee. She was found in a paper bag in a dumpster with her litter mates.
Colbie is part of our family. My son has a lab, Dexter, that's only a couple of months older than Colbie. They are inseperable and so adorable. Quite opposites. Colbie is fearless and protective; Dexter is the one needing protecting- a big teddy bear. You don't see one without the other. The yard is Colbie's domain. Bird, chipmunk, or squirrel enters at their own risk. Well, at least without the birds Dexter can enjoy the outdoors. He's got a phobia about birds. It developed when a wild turkey scared him...although a lot of things scare Dexter, but not with Colbie by his side. Dexter gets into his own fair share of trouble with Colbie playing lookout. Watching the two together puts a smile on my face.
If you're looking for a pet, look first at a shelter. We got our cat from a shelter too. Wouldn't trade them for the world!
