Part of the Iowa State Fair are dog shows including this little guy. He was able to clear a 58 inch bar on his second try. The best part of the story is that this half-collie half-cattle dog was picked up by the show from a local animal shelter.

There are many great family pets that can be found at your local rescue shelter and/or pound. If you are considering a new addition to your family, please check there first.
