Hi Judy - yes they do look a lot alike. Rooney is a mini ALD from Seapray in Florida. He is 4.5 months old and we just love him to bits. He taught himself to get the paper, just started doing it and now he does it every day.
Tori is an aussiedoodle too! I would have sworn they were brother and sister form their pictures... did you look at my pics? Do you think they look alike? Also, Tori has some 'issues' with strangers and being afraid too! She doesn't pee, but goes crazy with barking. She also has this STRONG desire to herd people. You can read all about that if you choose in my discussion I posted. We have actually consulted some trainers and behaviorists for help now. She was born in March 2008 to an austrailian shepherd mom and standard poodle dad. she's smaller than sully and is only 38 pounds, but because of all her hair looks heavier. We got her from a breeder in Ontario Canada, and she too was shipped to us via Air Canada. When we first got her she was very timid, but SEEMED better, but I guess I didn't do such a good job at socializing her Although she was always around people who came to visit, but I never really took her out for fear of her being around unvaccinated dogs....Good luck with sully. I hope you can work it out! Looking forward to chatting again! Shelly
Hi Judy ~ I sent you a friend request - with a message - check on the upper right corner of your page where it says inbox (with the envelope) and click "Accept" to see the messge... basically I asked if Sully came from a breeder in Canada - because she looks and 'behaves' (I've written about the same issues you spoke about in "Scaredy doodle") SOOOOO much like my Tori! It's almost freaky! Take a look at my pics. When Tori was younger, her cream was the exact coloring as sully's tan/copper markings. What do you think? Shelly
Hi Judy... just popped on to see if you got my message about Sully. I just can't get this whole behavior and look-alike thing out of my mind... so sorry to be "stalking" you! LOL Hope all is coming along for you and Sully!
