  4. Sounds like Leo now has a new reason to live. What a wonderful story! Thank you for sharing it.
    2 months ago we had to let our 14 year old australien shepherd Momo go. He was such a great guardin dog, and he took to it naturally, no training involved.
    We let him apprentice 2 pups to take over his work, which they are doing great. Mo trained
    Miki our 5 year old cattle dog/border collie and Zip our 1 1/2 year old australien shepherd/pit bull mix. We also rescued an adult german shepherd/ lab girl named June but she likes to chase butterflys. Like you we have a secure coop and bring dogs in the house at night.
    We knew this was likely mo's last summer, but i still tear up now and again from missing him.
    Leo is a treasure!
    thanks again for writing your story!!
     
  5. Great story! We're thinking about a rescue guardian dog once we get the new place properly set up.
