We have an Australian Cattle dog. I would probably have looked for a Carolina dog had I known about them 12 years ago but our ACD is amazingly smart. One of the foundation breeds is dingo and another one is dalmation. They also have a now extinct scottish herding dog similar to a border collie. He is also part border collie. Once we convinced him that babies grow up to throw frisbies he quit wanting to eat them and became very gentle. He’s not one of those dogs however that I would ever let a baby pull up on. A bit jumpy but if he’s feeling anxious, he either goes into the laundry room or brings a toy to the alpha person in the room.
