Timber is a 5 1/2 year old, blue Merle, standard Aussie. I have had him since he was 7 weeks. He can sit, stay, lay down, shake. He is wonderful off leash and decent on leash. He is loving, sweet, smart and was raised with labradors. He has little introduction to children. He does well with older children (my nieces are 10 & 12. But younger children and loud/ unpredictable children make him uncomfortable/ fearful and he herds/ nips at them.
I believe the right family could train or introduce him to younger children if they have time to put forward. He does well with cattle and loves to snuggle. Over all he has been a wonderful companion and it would absolutely be my loss and your gain to add him to your family.
