He is a border collie/Australian Shepherd X blue heeler (Australian Cattle Dog) but when he is like this we call him the little black fox.
We are feeding him strictly on the Natural Rearing Method developed by veterinarian and herbalist, Juliette de Bairicli-Levy who pioneered the raw food diet for dogs. Right now he eats 4 times a day. He gets non-homogonized milk with honey at 8am, multigrain rolled grains with butter milk, seaweed powder, a tsp of oil and nettle at noon, 2 oz of meat at 4pm and 4 - 8 oz of meat with bones at 8pm. So far he is looking very healthy and he's everyone's darling.
For training, we are using Cesar Millan's methods which are so incredible. Puppies learn so fast when you know how to speak to them in dog language. We think he will turn out to be a very good dog! And who knows, maybe this means that this summer we won't have to pretend to be sheep dogs when we round up the sheep.
And no, he's not named after the movie - we haven't seen it. It just seemed to be his name. Don't you agree?
