Default Hello From Banff, Alberta!

Meet Atlas!



Atlas is a 7 month old blue heeler x black lab (possibly some golden retriver or husky..?). I am orginally from Ontario and while driving out West this summer I found this little guy at only 3 months, trotting down the side of the highway on the border of Ontario and Manitoba. My best guess is that he wandered off of a reserve in the area and somehow our paths crossed.

People always say what a lucky dog he is but I think I'm the lucky one. He is an extremely faithful companion and boy does he ever have those blue heeler brains!

Interestingly enough, blue heelers have always been one of my favourite breeds. I am a big fan of working dogs in general but blue heelers have always particularly interested me. (Maybe its because I enjoy having a dog almost as stubborn as I am? )

Anyway, I'm rambling!! Just wanted to say hi and introduce my wonderful young man.

Thanks everyone!

I really look forward to getting to know you and your dogs better.
Is there anyone on the forum that owns a very stubborn dog that I could talk to? I realize all dogs are stubborn but Atlas is the most stubborn dog I have ever met. Don't get me wrong, he is extremely well behaved and very smart. I'd just be interested to talk to someone else who has to deal with similar issues and discuss training techniques.

Thanks again everyone!
