We waited and looked for such a long time for a dog like this! Blevins has a top notch temperament and big personality. He is eager to please, loves to play, and is smart and athletic. He is confident and outgoing. Affectionate and loyal. Shows a lot of natural herding instinct. We have tried him a bit on goats and he seems to have a lot of natural ability. Hope to do more herding with him when he's a bit older. We were looking for a stocky male with an attractive face, good bone, balanced build, nice ears and tail, a friendly, confident disposition, and a blue mottled coat. Blevins is everything we had hoped for and more! Truly a dream come true type of dog. We look forward to many years with this guy and plan on raising a few litters in the near future.
