Izzie comes from great lines. She is extremely Smart and very Sweet.
Great with Children.... She has Scottish, Irish, and American lines. My
sister owned Izzies great grandmother Della. She was one of the
smartest dogs. She was never trained to herd but we could get her to
without any training. We had sheep at the time and Della would easily
herd them into the corral as well as often herding the ducks:-))  She
would fetch all day long if she could. :) She lived  till she was 13. I pick
the right dog when picked Izzie. She is the best.:) Her puppies are
already looking very smart. Izzie most definately has the herding
instinct  in her.. Izzie is from a long line of working dogs and both of
her parents are working dogs.
