 BackgroundSadie is a tri-colored female born in 2010 and living on her farm in Arkansas.  She was evaluated at approximately 2 1/2 years of age.  Sadie works with poultry on a regular basis by gathering and putting them up.  She even reminds her owner when it is time to put the chickens away.  On rare occasions, she has worked with cattle.  When asked, she has easily put a steer in the pen.  She works with a totally different approach with cattle than she does with the poultry. The owner wishes there was more need for her to work the cattle because she really gets excited when she has the opportunity.  Sadie is eager to please and ready to work.  She is always eager to learn new things.  She is very protective of her home and family and a fantastic guard dog.
