Maddie our Austrailian cattle dog lost her best friend Rigel (Aussie/border collie cross) in the fall of 2010. She was heartbroken after 8 years of Rigel being her best friend. We swore we would not rush into anything and then I came across the ARPH in Ontario. I fell in love with Newton instantly. I only hoped that Maddie would feel the same way. We drove 3 1/2 hours to meet Newton and Maddie instantly feel in love as well. They are inseparable and love to play cattle dog games. Maddie has even taught Newt to herd the local cows.
