From the Foster: 

Brady is a sweet, happy sidekick dog! He has lots of energy and will make a great running/walking buddy. He does well on a leash and is happy to see everyone he meets. He gets along great with other dogs, but is so happy to see them that he can be a lot for some dogs. He will do best with dogs who enjoy lots of running, wrestling, and other “up in your business” kinds of play. He redirects pretty quickly if he’s getting too playful. Because he is such a champ at herding, he will do better with older kids. Once he’s burned off some energy, Brady will happily snuggle on the couch with you to watch a movie and chew on his bone.
He’s basically house trained, but may mark when he’s first in a new place. Once he’s in his crate, he whines a bit initially, but then settles in and sleeps in it all night. He does best in his crate if he can’t see you. He’s very interested in our cat and occasionally chases him, but isn’t aggressive and redirects quickly.
He is learning that you get more pets if all four feet are on the ground rather than jumping and that you don’t need to bark at everybody who walks by when you’re out in the yard. He’s doing pretty well with this, but still needs reminders.
Brady is simply a joy to have around!
