Old timers say that you only get one really good dog in a lifetime. I have had three- Chico and Susie Q and now Remy! One of the outstanding pups from Blacksheep Homestead's Suzy x Rooster litters, Remy is typical of the wonderful faRmily dogs from this cross. He is ultra-biddable like the dogs De Butcher bred, ( Remy goes to Sharlyn Dalby's Butcher dogs on top and Susie Q on the bottom.) Tough and resilient like Grandpa Rusty and the dogs Bob Hughes and Don Diffendaffer bred, Remy is a true credit to his breed and his breeder! I appreciate every breeder who has contributed to his pedigree, but especially Tish Toren who selected him to be most like the Dogs that De Butcher bred, and of course De herself. I strive to do as well, and am honored to be carrying the torch for my part of the relay.
Remy is precisely the kind of dog I have been striving to breed, a real classic English Shepherd that knows the rules of the farm and works to enforce them, yet is so biddable and tuned in to what you want he is a guided missile in any situation where a good stockdog is required! And all of this was accomplished with only the usual day to day routine training, no special clinics or seminars required! Whatever the job, from working Black Angus bulls to babysitting a two year old, Remy is the classic English Shepherd.
No matter the situation - Remy calls off immediately. If he is in a dog fight or if there is a female in heat, he always defers to my wishes. This is a trait that you have to love in a spunky dog!
Thank you Tish for giving me the opportunity to own this wonderful dog!

I love the way this dog looks at me and grins, as though he has just told a great joke and the rest of the room is too dumb to get the punch line!
