Hi and welcome

the availability of the working type depends on where you are.

This is the working beardie society web site, plenty good breeders on there

Hi Neil, and a very big welcome toImage

If you want a working beardie, I would suggest either the link above or PM our Colin, who always has workers and knows a good dog when he sees one - user name Colinwurzel.

Great to speak to you in chat too.

As CJ says Colin is a good person to ask he sometimes knows of one that is in need.

Hi Neil

Tracey is my wee sister, they've got a couple of beardies among, I think, their 12 dogs. I can ask her if you like if they know of any.

Do hope you find your pup soon, Neil - and it would be lovely to hear about how you train and work your dogs.

I think you are the only working shepherd amongst our members! Laughing
