We have a small farm with chickens, goats, horses and guineas. We have two English Shepherds the one pictured Leo is an amazing natural herder with no training from me he watches what I want to do with the livestock and immediately jumps in to help. He was a handful as a puppy, destructive and chewing but after about 1-1 1/2 years he has settled into that once in a lifetime dog. He is protective when it is called for, but never forgets a friend. The best watchdog, and helper I have ever had. We also have Annie a tri-color that comes from a therapy line, she is sweet, willing and compliant. Smart as a whip, she also is a natural with moving around animals, and protecting her people and livestock. Just had a litter of 8 from these two and now get to experience the fun of puppies.English Shepherds love their people with devotion, and they do not like to be ignored. They love, love attention from you, and will always stay by your side. Linda
