She looks more like a mini Mini Aussie. So far she does not shed at all! Her coat feels like hair and not fur. She is very smart and likes to learn. She can learn a new trick in one session. She does "herd" the cat, so her natural herding instincts come out. She is 22 lbs. She is wary of new people, but will warm up after a bit. She has the energy of a puppy, but not over the top. She shreds all of her toys. She is a chewer, but understands what is hers to chew on and what is not. She is a very smart girl!
