The shelter told me the woman came in and described in explicit detail how her dog had been "tied" to another dog. And how the dad (who just happens to be a purebred BC or Aussie) "just came into her yard".
But Jeff and I talked and either the litter had more dads or the woman is not being honest (gee imagine that!) and we are thinking this boy is full blooded Aussie, since I can't imagine how a merle male BC would have hooked up with a merle Aussie mom.
And yeah I bet nobody wanted a deafie, even for free. What's wrong with people?
I think he is gorgeous!
