I am STAR DUST, lively and happy. I am living in Finland, where there are no deaf Cattle Dog puppies. The vet has a big litter box… I propose, that no vet is killing deaf puppies anymore (like in Germany, f.ex) and the breeder murders the little pup with the wagging tail by his own hands. Maybe then we shall have some happy ACDs with happy owners. I am convinced, there are warmhearted Finnish people.
