BAM

ABCA AKC MLBC BAM BAM

Bam is a little gem.  She is another daughter of our program. BAM shows that balance of mind and athleticism that we seek in our dogs, and represents our border collie program well.  BAM has shown quick learning of obedience commands and is learning to channel her abundant energy into organized play. She has strong toy drive and is seldom seen without having a toy in her mouth ready for engagement; however, she will relax as needed too. BAM enjoys going out on rides with Sage on his horse or ATV as long as she can be with her person.
