Our search for the official sheep dog is over! Queen has been selected by popular vote as the official sheep dog of Dabbieri's Just Shorn line.
We have also randomly selected one lucky voter to win $2,500 in Dabbieri's Just Shorn carpet! Keep an eye out for more details on this. Now, without further ado, meet Queen!
Queen works with Andy Scott at Cannington Farm. She came to Andy as a gift from his uncle when she was 3 years old, and already trained as a fine heading dog. Her job is to quietly stare sheep down, and move them to where Andy wants them. Andy communicates with her with both yells and whistles, but generally she know what she's doing without too much instruction at all.
She's now 7 years old which could be considered old for sheepdogs, but Andy says the old adage about teaching old dogs new tricks is not at all true with her. She continues to learn new tricks and tasks.
Queen may not be the biggest dog in the team, but she certainly lives up to her name with her attitude. She reigns as supreme as leader of the pack and doesn't take any nonsense!
Thanks everyone for voting for Queen as our official sheep dog!
