Arrival Story:
I went to the SPCA[ you can see the ads below[2nd to last picture] that the SPCA used his picture twice because he is SO cute] and wanted a black n' white dog but they did not let me have the one puppy I wanted because I said I 'd keep him outside [a lie for my then landlord].So they told us to look for a dog 5 mos or older. Trooper was quiet[I did not want a barky dog] but freindly and interested in a ball I threw so I knew he'd be good. He turned out to be so shy at first but so settled in and acted like a very happy Aussie---with Aussie crouching behavior n other hearding breed characterisics.

Bio:
I taught him to "smile" , rollover, sit up, shake either paw , he had a very silky coat the required brushing but gave him alot of character-he was my only dog for 5 years and many people told me he was very "beautiful".He was also very friendly with people hed wag his tale for everyone even an old man that hit him on the head with his cane because Trooper came up to him wagging his tail and just very happy to see him,[as the man approached the front lawn where trooper was tied-up just to enjoy for a few hours] but the man was afraid of dogs , poor Trooper cried when he got hit, but Trooper never even growled after he was hit only walked away slowly with his tail down:(. My whole extended family loved Trooper and his abilty to smile on comand and his very happy and friendly attitude.-He is missed by both[all] of us
