True to her Heeler nature, Margot is 100% a "shadow" dog -- she never lets me out of her sight, whether it be at home, at the park, or while I'm using the bathroom,. She doesn't care too much about playing with other dogs, but she coexists well with her 7yo sister (German Shepherd) and ignores other dogs at the dog park when she wants to play fetch. Ball is life. The first three years of her life were HARD as she is a very high energy breed that requires a lot of attention and training. She caught on to tricks very quickly, and is all around a smart girl. She loves to do puzzles and find snacks in her snuffle mat. She no longer nips heels while walking or running, but anything with wheels is at risk of being herded ;-)
Can be standoff-ish towards strangers, but very curious. Loves her people. Honestly all the trouble was worth it, I couldn't imagine a better pup and will add another to the family when she's a few years older. Very sweet, snuggly pup who sleeps next to me EVERY night.
