And there temperaments are to die for. And yes they live outside. As an ACO and a pet owner this is a very VERY new concept for me. However this is what the breed has been bred for generations to do, and they were born and raised with parents who actively preform the duties of a Live stock guardian dog. These pups were born in the barn, handled daily by the breeder, and raised with the goats as a Live stock guardian dog should. They are very much loved, not abused or neglected, and will be allowed to come inside when ever they desire. If you want more info on an LGD, here you go: http://www.lgd.org/
Meet Marmoona *AKA Mara* up front, and Trinity, *AKA Trin* behind her.
the goats have NO clue what to think of the pups lol
Last night they chilled in my empty chicken coop. And OMG did that thing get and stay warm!! I have one hell of a good chicken coop!
Trinity and Mara are the sweetest things. They prefer to curl with the goats, but I do try and get them to curl up with me when im out there hehe
this is my watcher. She is going to be the type of dog who sits back and just watches.
And this is going to be my patroler. The type of dog who patrols the borders of the yard and making sure the coyotes dont come near.
There personalitys and temperaments are giving away these little tid-bits of info ^^
For now though they are happy being adorable, and as they grow I cant wait to see them interact with everything and everyone :D
And, this Wednesday Adams duck eggs will be here and in the incubator! :D Anacona eggs, a rare breed that he fell in love with!
