Hello. My name is Nip. I am an Australian Blue Heeler cattle dog. We were bred in about 1840 by crossing Scottish blues with dingos to create a breed that can withstand the harsh Australian conditions. We are bred to nip at the back of the legs of stubborn cattle to keep them moving when droving and we have great stamina.
I am 11 months old and last Tuesday I was saved from the dog pound who were going to put me down the following day.
As you can see I am smiling, (click on my picture), because I am grateful. I do like to muck about and bark at things I don't understand but most of all I like to please.
I am a great blogger and I will be filling in for a few posts whilst my owner gets his shoulder back on track.
