Hi, i have decided on the dog i would like to get at christmas time, but i was wondering if some of you could answer a few questions? 1) I know they shed quite alot, but do they do it all year round? 2) How expensive would you say they are? 3) Is it easy to get hold of a blue merle puppy in the U.K? Also it would be very helpful if you guy could help me find some breeders websites aswell.... Thanks James.
