My mother in law has a blue lacy (male) and we brought her a border collie (female) from someone who wanted to give her up. Both dogs are amazing ranch dogs. Their puppies arrived 3 weeks ago yesterday...she had NINE!!! The most amazing part? The day her pups were born someone local found a newborn pup that had been born to a stray and abandoned. She brought to our place and I told her we'd see if momma would accept him. (He looks to be Australian shepherd and possibly border collie as well) She took him in as her own and I just wanted to share pictures - all TEN pups are doing great and their momma is an AMAZING momma dog!
