Wild Heiress Aussies Isabella “Izzy” – Retired here at LDV

Izzy is the Aussie that started it all for us! My daughter calls her the best impulse buy we ever made. She also goes by many names:

Izzard The Lizard, Izzifur, Izzy Pot, Isabella, Frizzy Izzy, Izzy Girl, D’Furrrrr, Furby, Izzard, Furminator

Izzy is the best dog I have ever owned. She is loyal, loving, funny, smart, obedient, protector, baby sitter, best friend, clown – I could go on and on. She is THE BEST judge of character I have ever met. As a single mom for over ten years, she saved me many times from obvious mistakes that I was blind to. AND she LOVED John (my husband)!! Smart girl!

She has definitely earned her retirement after eight good years of puppies and love. She is now the one who runs the ranch and the house! Not to mention….. have you seen how beautiful she is? And we DO NOT discuss her weight…….hahahaha

Crossroad Acres Sophia Loren “Sophie” – Retired here at LDV

Sophie is a kind and gentle spirit. She is the sweetest thing EVER! Her sire is CH Onthehills Light My Fire At Kiawah, “Flint.” She is a red factored blue merle. She has one amber eye and one eye that is half ice blue and half amber, just gorgeous!! She is a larger standard size with the powder blue merle markings. She is as beautiful as she is sweet and as intelligent as both! She is very capable of herding our horses on instinct and does it well but she is easy to call off without being professionally trained so I would say her drive is low to moderate with a high skill level. She definitely has more whimsical notions than the focused high drive herd dog. She would rather be inside by your feet.
