I did post this on the WTB section as well, but this is a kind of extended post, questions etc.! I am wanting to find a good farm dog. Now my original idea was to get on a waiting list for a pup and would wait up to a year or two. I have been thinking and re-thinking and though buying a pup is still an option I wouldnt count out getting a rescue as well. One that would be part of the family of course. My biggest problem with that is how it would be around chickens and goats. On FURTHER thinking, there are all kinds of dogs out there in rescue so what I am looking for is probably there. Advice, suggestions, info on individual dogs available, well ANYTHING to do with my search is welcome. I DO have dogs, just not ones I would consider "farm" dogs, I will have to watch them around livestock, but they are members of our family and we love them. LOL, all of this to say basically what I am looking for is a dog or a breed that would be good with other dogs, not aggressive towards the smaller animals, yet a good watchdog/burglar deterrent. I am not needing to do this RIGHT NOW as I am working on finalizing the paperwork for our farm, though if the right one came along I would defintely consider it.
