Hello, I just found this group today while I was killing some time before leaving work. I adopted my dog from the Humane Society in Coon Rapids, Minnesota. There were four puppies and they said they were aussie shepherd/cattle dog mixes. I've done some reading and found that only the shepherds can have blue eyes, but his coat is shaggy in some spots and short in others. I don't have many pictures of him here at work, but do have these. We named him Brett Favre, as we got him as a 4-month-old puppy in March 2008, right after the human Brett retired - the first time.
