Rubin is a goofy boy, with a sweet and sensitive nature. He is always up for a good time, and has a great personality. He loves to show off, and has earned his CKC and ASCA championships. He is a thoughtful worker when herding, with a natural sense of rate. He relaxes easily when the job is done, which makes him an excellent farmhand, since he can just hang out in between tasks. He is a confident cow dog, and will grip heads and heels, and has a lot of presence on cattle. He’s worked pairs, bulls, calves and heifers, and knows how to tone it down to handle babies with care. He is not the dog I choose for independent out of sight outruns, but my top choice to motivate stubborn cattle, or work the pens and do barnyard chores.

I didn’t think his puppy name suited him very well and couldn’t decide on a name. Someone suggested Rubin which I liked the sound of, and after some internet digging I realized that The Grateful Dead had a song titled “Rubin & Cerise”, so I didn’t have much choice after that! In keeping with the “red” name theme of the litter, he became Superfly’s The Grateful Red.

Rubin has sired several litters to date and seems to stamp his puppies with his correct conformation, good attitude, and natural talent. Several of his kids are already well on their way to their ASCA championships.
