Being with me. Although squeaky toys are definitely a close second.

Being ignored, not being given treats when he thinks he deserves them during training sessions, and the cat being out of reach.

Favorite Toy:
That isn't ruined? This always changes!

Favorite Food:
He only gets to eat dog food, but he'd prefer the stuff that's bad for him.

Favorite Walk:
Any walk is good with him, but I take him to off leash dog parks on occasion, and a fenced in dog park at least 4 times a week, and he thoroughly enjoys those.

Best Tricks:
He rings a bell to go outside, twirls in a circle, and counts. He does a 180 in the air when I tell him to 'Party'. He's also in the process of learning to get a beer out of the fridge for me.

Arrival Story:
I wanted a demo dog for my training business- an older dog, maybe 1-3 years old. I went to multiple shelters, etc. and the day I went to TLAC, there were four or five dogs I wanted to look at. Unfortunately, every single other dog I wanted to see was still within the 72 hr grace period. I decided to still look at Snow Plow, even though he was much younger than what I was looking for, and something just told me "This is the one." We've been together ever since.

In the kennel, Snow Plow was said to be a border collie mix, and through some very deep research and consultation, he is most certainly a purebred Australian cattle dog, more commonly referred to as a 'heeler' who never got his color in. It's considered a defect, but he's not deaf, is gorgeous, and he's the best dog I've ever had.

Do I have a rare ACD...

Snow Plow is my business demo dog and my best friend. I take him to the dog park 3-5+ days a week and spend more time with him than anyone. He requires a lot from me, but he's a fantastic dog who is incredibly intelligent and fun. Everyone who meets him falls in love, so I have no idea how he was at the shelter for two weeks, especially being a brand new puppy. I guess we were meant for each other.
