We are looking for a dog for Granny Donna. Her dog, Riley, finally succumbed to IMHA last week. I was thinking she would want to wait awhile before looking for another companion, but she said she really misses having her canine friend and wants to move forward with rescuing another. The chickens free-range in the yard during the day, but the dog would be indoors most of the time. She successfully trained Riley...who was probably a border collie cross...to leave the chickens alone and he was totally trustworthy to let him out to use the bathroom without supervision. She adopted him when he was about 2 about 4 years ago. I have found a lovely English pointer (possible mix?) at a rescue close by and was wondering if any of you have them and how they are with poultry.
