Hi everyone! Julie and I live in the Northwest. We adopted her from the local Humane Society, and it's been almost 2 years that we've had her. Julie is an Australian Cattle Dog/American Pitbull Terrier mix. (Are you wincing right now? Most people do. ) She is indeed a very interesting mix, and so pretty, and super smart. We like to go on runs together, rain or shine, and she is a super-smart girl that always, always keeps us on our toes. Whether picking up a trick at lightening speed or discovering a new, unique way to escape from her collar, we are constantly impressed. Ms. Nutballs has come by her name quite honestly, she is so smart and muscular,and so, so high energy. Sergeant Nutballs just came to us. I was looking over her documents from the humane society today when renewing her license, and noticed every behavioral analysis had "VERY HIGH ENERGY" scribbled across it in 3-inch high letters, on every page. You can't say they didn't warn us! I joined up here to learn some new tricks for Julie. We do pretty well managing her energy with runs and tug o war, but in these chilly wet months our trips outside are becoming fewer, so I'm going to try to invest some time and drain some of that mental energy she's got going on instead. Thanks for reading, lovely to meet you all! Elle & Sergeant Julie.
