Welcome to the board and Roxy is adorable!  I remember when Kaila looked that sweet and innocent.  That didn't last long!  Mals are a fun ride!

Due to recent budget cuts and the rising cost of electricity, gas and oil, as well as current market conditions, the Light at the End of the Tunnel has been turned off. We apologize for the inconvenience

 This is our first rodeo with a Mal. We have several older dogs, many of them pound pups that we've rescued.  When we saw her at the shelter, she was 7 weeks olds, not sure what she was.  Then our vet said she was a Mal, and we were lucky to find her.  She is soo full of herself, and loves to herd the other dogs around.  Have you ever seen a Blue Heeler heeled?  We do everyday.  Any suggestions on the best way to spend her endless supply of energy?  She has 1.5 acres of fenced domain to roam, and she has started patroling the fence line every evening.

Awwwe, what a sweetie she is.  And welcome!
As for energy maybe playing frisbee or fetch. I know of many many shepherds that are ball obsessive and will play for hours.
