    3. Blue Lacy
    The Blue Lacy is a purebred dog that belongs to the Cattle dog sub group, which falls under the larger Uncategorized dog breed group.
    Uncategorized group: This dog is unique! It is not characterized into any of the dog breed groups. The truth is, there really is no perfect way to categorize dog breeds. Dog breeds have changed drastically with time; not only because they are used less and less for work, and increasingly for home companionship, but also because today's dogs are being mixed more frequently than in the past. Typically an uncategorized dog could go into two or more groups just as easily, so it is more accurate to leave it as 'uncategorized'.
    Cattle dog sub-group: Cattle dog breeds are the ultimate medium sized herders with both strength and agility. They have been traditionally bred to help work on the farm, and therefore are eager to please their owners, and cattle dogs have an excellent temperament. Cattle dogs are very smart, a bit cautious with strangers, and always want to be doing something. If you simply leave them in your apartment or house, without the proper exercise and stimulation eventually they will become destructive. Cattle dog training is important, and if you put in the work you will be rewarded with an excellent dog. Because of their well roundedness and athleticism, cattle-dog mixes are are common- such as cattle dog and husky mixes, and cattle dog pitbull mixes.
