Saturday morning saw a new arrival, Devon Blue – and I am not talking about the cheese!

Devon is a foster dog from Aussie Rescue, he came from the same bust as Babybel. He has shown natural herding ability so he has been transfered to us in the hopes that if he is good with sheep we will look to adopt him; us chasing sheep around 120 acres is just not working! :)

We have already had an adventure, as Sunday morning he got away from Steve when they were out first thing and took off! After some rather terrifying moments of him running down the wrong side of the road into oncoming traffic, we kept a distance until the previous fosterer was able to come and rescue us all!

Devon is very, very nervous and it takes him a while to gift his trust to anyone. He does trust Finola, and we were so lucky that she was able to come out and recapture our runaway for us.

So far things are going slowly. He is not sure of us, not entirely house trained and has howled through the night for the last two nights! We are tired, but not about to give in that easily.

We will keep on working with him to gain his trust, and hopefully in the not too distant future we will find ourselves a new mentor to teach us and Devon about herding sheep.

I love to know what you think so please rate my post or leave me a comment. If you really liked this post maybe you would consider sharing it. Thank you.
