"The ACD is certainly known for being a herder and a hard worker, but there's not a lot of mention about their ability to have a good time! My red Heeler Maverick here is the epitome of 'maverick' as far as ACDs go. His motto is "All play and no work." He will turn one year old in June and his best friend, Blue Heeler Max (owned by my best friend Jonas!) just turned one in April. I was pleased my pictures turned out so clear, since they were jumping around and splashing (with their pal Manny the Rottweiler—you can see his fanny here). They love to swim!"

"I was so afraid when I first got Mav because of all I've heard about the breed: how they're NOT a good novice dog, not a good house pet, they're only happy if they have a job to do "daily," and require acres of land to live a full and complete life...and I'm no farmer nor do I have any cattle to herd. But when I saw him (he was 6 weeks old) I couldn't resist, as his cuteness rivals the cutest Labrador Retriever."

"(and retrieving is Maverick's specialty). I also heard that is the worst way to choose a dog. But he has so far totally surprised me in every way. He has turned out to be the most loving and charming dog I have ever seen! He is extremely intelligent; training him was a snap, almost as if he already knew what was expected of him. There is no doubt he is bursting with energy, but instead of herding cattle, playing tag keeps him entertained! (And bonus if you have a hose or sprinkler around!) And contrary to the stereotype, he NEVER nips at anybody's heels! He's very eager to learn tricks (he'll do anything for a treat!) and very obedient. He even knows to be gentle and slow around my birds! Also, he is very good at not running off. Suppose I take him to the park where other dogs are running wild (which is fine), he will always stay close by, even at the peak of horseplay."

"Unlike all the neighborhood dogs, Maverick does NOT bark incessantly, is very friendly to visitors (never growls), very social with other dogs and adored by everyone."

"Oh, ha ha, my favorite thing he does is instead of jumping up on the furniture, he tries to be dainty, and puts his front feet up first, then stands up, then tries to pull himself up without using his hind legs (grunting and making funny noises the whole time) until he's about waist-high. Then he tries to slowly use one hind leg, then the other...until he can finally get one knee up on the furniture, then he can finally get on.... It is just hilarious! (Other dogs would just jump and be done in one second! But this is Funniest Home Videos in 3D!)"

"So Maverick has turned out to be the ideal house pet! Even at 50 pounds, he always wants to sit in my/your lap! He loves any toy you give him to play with (but nobody has invented one that he cannot destroy) and still cherishes his baby blanket I gave him when I brought him home, yet he has never chewed one single belonging of mine (how lucky is that). He'll easily keep up with me on our 5 mile runs, swims like a champ, and playing fetch (or catch?) is his all-time favorite activity. If I'm not quick enough to catch his cue, he'll throw his toy in the air himself and catch it!"
