I live on a farm with my young daughter who LOVES animals as much as I do and my pugalier Odie and kelpie Ash who both love to make new friends. Your dog will never go without excercise either for a walk/run or chasing the ball around the farm. Can only take dogs who have good recall as property is a farm and have no secure fencing. Dogs sleep and are kept indoors - only outdoors when I am outside with them. Must be good with other farm animals.
