We have a rescued Border Collie that has a crippled front leg and is extremely timid. She actually does pretty well as long as she's on our property, but any time we try to take her to the park or for a hike, she panics and just freezes up. She just lies down and refuses to walk so she's not much of a hiking companion. Our shelter lab-mix had severe hip displasia and he recently passed away and we decided to get a healthy dog from a breeder this time so we could have a dog that could go for hikes and would be a little better bad-guy deterent than our timid Border. We found a Dutch shepherd breeder near here that we really liked when we spent most of a day with them and this pup picked us at the end of the day. He was raised in a house with three cats so he gets along with ours and he seems pretty normal so far, something we're not used to at all with dogs. Meet Arno the six month old Long Haired Dutch Shepherd.
