Ben is a stunning black tri male with tremendous drive and enthusiasm.  He has the class Aussie white collar and
a lovely split face.  Ben has exceptional temperament, fluid side gate and possesses a keen intelligence.  Ben
came to NorAust in September of 2001 and has never looked back.  He has been an exceptional performer for
NorAust, and also our greatest Ambassador.  He has taught hundreds of classes, given numerous demos, and
worked tirelessly and happily the entire time.

At his current age, Ben is starting to slow down his speed, but nothing can stop his enthusiasm.  He can still
compete in the regular divisions of AKC; often beating out much younger dogs.  This dog can fly!

Ben is available for stud to approved bitches.
