Spur is a two year old 55 pound, tri-colored male. He is born and bred to be a cow dog. He is tough on cattle but can work sheep as well with eye and finesse. Although not an excessive biter, when he does bite, it is to the bone. He works with an immense drive and never tires or quits. He is medium coated with semi-pricked ears. He has the most easy-going temperament and loves all people and dogs.

In April 2002 Spur received his ASCA Open Cattle title with a 1st in Open Cattle and High scoring Open dog. Although bred for cattle, Spur is slowly getting the hang of sheep. He has trialed on sheep a couple times and is getting more reliable. He wants to push a bit so it has taken longer to get him to relax somewhat on stock other than cattle. When working, Spur will walk up on anything and hold his ground when challenged. He has a mental toughness and will take any amount of pressure when training without quitting or blowing up. He will take a correction and give, then go back and try to do it right. His is so gentle with people and other animals it is amazing to watch. He is not dog aggressive, even with other males and is a lover not a fighter. His is such a joy to have, we feel really lucky!
