Tupelo is from Honey's last litter, by Husted's Tribute to Johnny Cash, born in June 2009. He inherited Honey's eyes & coloring, her responsiveness and zeal, and Cash's beautiful expression, boldness, and power. Tupelo spent his first year of life living in California; unfortunately he wore out his welcome when adolescence hit -- so, he returned to Oregon. For better or worse, he is my boy!

Tupelo shows a lot of natural talent as a stock dog; he has a powerful presence, excellent balance, and outstanding drive. He is very tuned into me and works hard to be my partner. You can see a short clip of an "instinct" test we did before starting any formal training here. He has since earned advanced herding titles on AHBA's ranch, large flock, and arena courses, a Working Trial Championship (advanced titles on cattle, sheep, ducks) from ASCA, and completed a Herding Trial Championship in AHBA; these accomplishments reflect his natural talent -- we have a long way to go with his formal training! Tupelo is "a lot of dog", approaching life with intensity and passion. He is eager, resilient, and capable; responsive to direction but willing to take charge.

Tupelo is MDR-1 normal/normal, PennHIP DI=0.45/0.55/no DJD. He will not be a breeding dog (neutered) but his energy and intelligence will be channeled into work! June 2012 Photo Update, December 2012 Photos
