my dog- senka (german shepherd and black lab mix- two years old)- PROTECTS MY CHICKENS! it's so crazy! she'll chase off raccoons and any other predator (this i enjoy, never have to worry about anything harming my girls! ) , BUT SHE DOESN'T CHASE THE CHICKENS! we raised her knowing NEVER to touch the girls but WOW, I never knew she would PROTECT the girls! If anyone else's dog does this tell me!
