My Lancashire Heeler is now 15 1/2 years old and still going strong, wants a walk every chance he gets. Twice a day he goes for at least 2 miles! He had problems early in life because a car hit him before I adopted him, but he is fine now and wants to chase anything that comes around- cats/birds especially!! They are wonderful and extremely smart!!! Older kids are good but not small children so much. I LOVE my baby!! He is my heart!!!
