    Awww! They're adorable! Do you plan to house them with the chickens? I have a friend who raises LGDs and keeps the pups in the chicken coop. The dogs are amazing chicken guards.

    I had not heard of them either until my neighbor got one so I did some research.

    They are a working dog that originated in Texas (in 2001 they were made the state dog of Texas)

    Here is a link that tells about them:

    Edited to add:

    I doubt they make it to the chicken pen anytime soon because they have only left the house to do their business. Right now they are curled up asleep with my husband - lol!

    Mag16 - any long term update on your blue lacy? I'm doing some research on these as a medium size livestock and chicken guardian / herder.

    Thanks!
