Bandit has Rustyâ€™s blaze and red ears. The only red ACD pup for miles, he found me minutes after Rusty died. The circumstances that brought me with my dying ACD-X and Louanne with her red ACD pup to the vet at the same time were unusual, but no coincidence. It wasnâ€™t even Louanneâ€™s regular vet, as she lives many miles away.
Bandit and Chase
Bandit was raised by Rainbow and lived with Kate for a while. He is now Chaseâ€™s best buddy. He turnedÂ 5 years old in November. He is so smart and capable that I have been challenged to keep him busy. We have trained in obedience, rally, herding, and agility. He is my first herding dog and clearly, I have a lot of catching up to do!
Just before he turned 3,Â Bandit amazed me by placing 2nd in versatility at the Australian Cattle Dog Clue of America National Specialty in Rochester, MN. (http://www.acdca.org/ACDCA2006/). He is an extraordinary dog. His official name is Hillhaven Bolt Outofthe Blue CD HSAs RA CGC.
