Trucker is a great dog. Very protective and smart. He has an equal balance of traits from his father and mother (which I own both). His appearance I would say is more like his mother (Aussie side), but he has a tad more personality traits from his daddy (queensland). He is a great family dog but attached himself to one owner. He is quiet like the Aussie but a great guard dog like the queensland. His only urge to herd is a ball, wheelbarrow, vacuum or anything rolling on the ground. He doesn't bother livestock (horses, cows or chickens). He is more affectionate like his mother (Aussie). He loves to cuddle and lay with you. He's less active like his daddy (queensland). If he knows your home he just has to be with you or has to follow you or see you just like his daddy (queensland). He is also a little hard-headed like his daddy. Surprisingly he has a real nice combo of both parents, I am very pleased with the results. Trucker is a solid red with freckling on his nose and legs. Him and his other 6 siblings were NOT born with bobbed tails. He has medium length coat and is about 37 pounds at 6 months old. He is going to be a big boy. His mother weighs 46 pounds and his daddy weighs 33 pounds. We love him, one of the best dogs ever.
