Your dog is beautiful! The one lighter one was a bit scruffy in that picture, because I think she had just taken a swim in the stock watering tank and then rolled in the dirt to dry off. The coat on yours is so glossy. Some people have trained heelers to be really mean and vicious -- parlaying on their heeling instinct.. Everyone who comes here for the first time - and the folks working on a construction project were very cautious...and everyone asks me if she will bite them. Love your dog - thanks for posting! -- since it is dogs & chickens -- and yours is good with chickens - as is mine, then I don't think we hijacted the thread.
