Earlier today I saw something running around at first I thought it was coyote. I wouldn‘t say my dog is dumb, but he is deffintly not smart enough to not pick a fight with a coyote. So I ran outside to scare it off, and realised it was a German Shepard. I’ve seen this dog around before running through my yard before the chickens were there. And today he stoped to take a look at them, but when my dog came running around and started barking he ran off. I am not letting my chickens free range at the moment due to the fact that I am redoing our current freerange arangemnt, and they can’t be out of the run without supervision. If this dog were to come back and hurt my dog of my chikens while they were out ( my dog and chickens are never out at the same time.)I don’t know what I would do. I have no Idea who owns the dog where they live, or how to contact them. The first time we saw it I decided to go bike around to see if it was still out and I could ask the owners. I found a couple walking with their other dog and I asked if the German Shephard was theirs, because he was running around our property. They looked at eachother and said that he belongs to the ladies sister who lived out of state and was on vaccation. I don’t even know if they were telling the truth or not. If the dog does comeback again by the time I let the chickens free range again and got one of them, or if my dog is outside and if their dog hurt my dog or vise versa, what would you sugest doing?
