Nicknames: Nico-Fee, Feefers, Wiggle-Butt, Little Man
Breed: Australian Shepherd
Born: May 15, 2006
Titles: FDCh-G as of May 31, 2009
Likes: TENNIS BALLS and SHEEP!!! Also, anything else that resembles a ball, anything that might be food, picking on his little "brother" (Gabriel - a toy Aussie), cuddling with his "mom" (that's me).
Dislikes: Having to get his ball out of the lake, river etc, sharing toys with Gabriel, being picked on by his big "brother" (Tyson - a "regular" Aussie)
Bio: Adopted at 10 weeks from a shelter in Grants Pass, OR. His breeder passed away and all of the puppies were surrendered to the shelter. I drove 4 hours to "look" at the puppies and was smitten with the little blue dog with CRAZY ears (all of the other puppies were "normal")! I was originally looking for an agility dog, but Nico likes Flyball more....and so do I. I am also learning how to herd sheep with him (Nico is a natural, I need lots of training). Nico makes friends wherever he goes and is just fantastic!
