Hailey the Australian Stumpy Tailed Cattle Dog / German Shepherd mix at 3 years old—"Hailey looks mostly like a German Shepherd but acts more like a Cattle Dog. She's a big chicken and is very suspicious of new people. She hides when she thinks she's in trouble. I recently found out why she nips at strangers' ankles, she's trying to herd them! She loves to take a dip in the water at the beach or in her kiddie pool, but she absolutely hates baths. She has a need to lick any of your wounds if you want her to or not. She loves a good hunt. Sadly, she has caught birds, squirrels, rabbits, and gofers. She even hunts flies! She only plays with toys that make noises. And lastly, she has an odd howling talent. She even howls on command."
