altADOPTED! Sunny was rescued from the same shelter as our Jackson. We cannot believe this dog was found as a stray and never claimed. He is a handsome, wonderful little guy, and a typical busy cattle dog. We have had Sunny for only a few days, but can say he is very good with other dogs and people. He is happy, energetic, playful, likes toys and to retrieve sticks. In short, Sunny is a great dog, and still very much a puppy in personality. He walks fairly well on leash. Sunny has the classic cattle dog trait of wanting to bond very closely with someone and velcro himself to that person.  Except for the fact that Sunny has his gorgeous tail and Jackson has none at all, we would have thought the two were litter mates!  Sunny is also about 10 months, with a personality and temperament very similar to Jackson's. We put the two together and they had an instant bond, playing and interacting as if they were brothers. We will add information as we learn more about him from his foster.
