I have a blue merle smooth collie that my wife got from the Humane Society. They think he was about four years old when we got him so he's about 10 now. He's very protective and would separate the children if they started yelling at each other. He loves to walk and we go out three times a day regardles of the weather. He is a great dog.

My dog used to try to break up fights as well when we were kids. Rescue dogs can be so risky to take on, but as he sems to have done so well, you have obviously done & very good job. Keep up the love, he will return it so many times over, but you probably know that already.
