Throwback Thursday – Broc

Meet Broc, the star of this week’s throwback Thursday.

5-year-old Australian Shepherd, Broc, has been with mum Laura since he was just 8 weeks old.

We asked Laura some questions to find out more about handsome Broc.

Why this breed?

‘I wanted a breed of dog that would always be up for an adventure, from working bred lines, as well as be intelligent and a breed I could introduce to various dog sports.’

Where did Broc come from?

‘Broc is from a lovely lady and dear friend called Sue “Topeka Australian Shepherds” in Yorkshire.  She has been involved with Aussies for over 20 years.’

Does Broc have any unusual habits?

‘Broc has so many funny habits, it’s hard think of just one. Every day he makes me laugh. But, it’s always funny when he sleeps on his back with all his legs up in the air.’

Does Broc have any hobbies?

‘Broc leads a very active life, he thoroughly enjoys his work and whatever I ask of him. He loves tracking, scent detection work and Heelwork to music. We have also just started out in Canicross (he runs faster than me though!) Doing various dog sports has helped his confidence grow and gives him mental stimulation as well as physical. A tired dog is a happy dog.’

What are Broc’s top tricks?

‘Broc knows plenty of tricks too… high five, left and right paw, spin, bow, pose (sitting up on back legs) speak, leg weaves and wave are just a few of them! He can also fetch various toys by name order.

We are always on the look out for handsome hounds and pretty pooches to feature in our #ThrowbackThursday blogs. If you would like to get involved, email us at Hello@Buddies.co.uk.
