Mercury's mom says: Mercury, a mini Australian shepherd, is the sweetest, most gentle and crazy pup we have ever met. He throws himself on your lap whenever he can and stretches out so you donâ€™t miss a spot when patting him. He quickly learned to ring a small bell with his paw to signal he needed to go out. He completely enjoys our other family members (two papillons and two cats) although he needs to â€œleave the cats aloneâ€! We had a standard Aussie for 15 years and adored him. Mercuryâ€™s endearing personality reminds us so much of our Hero, we are so lucky. Mercuryâ€™s brother Blaze lives with my daughter, and when she visits itâ€™s complete bedlam!
