She is the smartest, mellowest, most super easy friend in the world! She gets along well with and actually helps take care of our farm animals. If chickens get loose, she nudges them back to their coop. The pigs love her and come running whenever she appears in their line of sight or she calls out to them. We never ever ever have to worry about her getting aggressive or harming our young grandchildren or any other dog. And, of course, she is the ultimate retriever, not only fetching balls, but also gloves, hats, and pretty much anything we ask her for.
