Pepper was bred to Rustic because of their similarities and compliments to each other. Both are outgoing, upbeat and very happy dogs. Both have sound, solid temperaments and are up for anything. Both are very athletic and fast. They are very biddable on stock, work naturally wide, balance and work to keep their groups together. Pepper has been my main chore dog for the last few years now and handles most all situations. She does well in pastures with distance and pens, working up close and keeping stock from turning back. Rustic is in the beginning stages of training for trialing. He is showing patience and thoughtfulness. They both work all types of stock and their styles are somewhat similar. Pepper is a bit more pushy but very honest with her stock. She will hit heads and heels. Rustic is coming right along with his training and experience on cattle. He is showing he can work cattle in a relaxed fashion but can address a challange and confidently deal with a head. He is also gaining confidence to heel and is not put off by a kick. He is also a very honest stockdog.
