Belle is from Raven's last litter, by Jarratt's Dallas, born June 2008. She has a sweet, sunny personality, so her name suits her well. At six years of age, she is keen, athletic, and enthusiastic in her approach to life. She is also very cute... which she knows how to use to her advantage!
Belle is smart, sensitive, and eager to work; she has a mind of her own but takes direction well. Belle is a natural heeler, and quite happy to get in and stir things up, but she also has a good feel for her stock and is capable of working with a gentle touch when required. She has demonstrated her herding ability with cattle, goats, sheep and ducks, and has a herding trial championship as well as advanced level "herding - ranch dog (HRD)," "herding- trial dog (HTD)" and "herding - trial arena dog (HTAD)" titles from AHBA. Belle is a fun dog to work with; she is cheerful, intelligent, and willing, with a good sense of humor.
In looks, Belle takes strongly after her great great grandma Kelly (born 1978, photo below); scroll down to see Belle's pedigree and photos. She has had three litters (see litters webpage for more information).
