Foxy is a fast learner and knows how to run the farm now, but last year when this photo was taken she was a handful for farmers Craig and Jenny McDonald.

Mrs McDonald took this photo on her property in the Carnamah-Coorow district last year, capturing the farm’s newest working dog.

The McDonalds’ farm has 4500 merino sheep as well as a cropping program with wheat, canola, lupins and oats. Mrs McDonald said Foxy enjoyed bouncing around the lupin crops when this photo was taken.

“Foxy was a new addition to our family last year to help with the sheep work, she is proving to be a very good dog,” she said.

Mrs McDonald said apart from herding sheep Foxy loves to ride on the back of the ute, play with the grandchildren, run through crops, shake hands and all the general dog stuff.

Foxy is just over one year old, and finds herself in trouble for chewing things around the farm and digging holes where she shouldn’t.
