Before adopting a dog/puppy, please check into the breed. Border Collies, Australian Shepherds and Cattle dogs (heelers) are working dogs and do not belong in a small area.

They don't do well crated for long periods of time as they become destructive or flat affect when released. These breeds need to be outside in a fenced in yard to have room to roam.

In Australia, these dogs are used to herd cattle and sheep. So it is inherit in their nature to need an open space.
