    Well I put my Dog of 16 years down Jan. 17th. She was in no good shape so I did what I thought best. My 5 year old was taking it Super hard so I went out and surprised him with a puppy of his own since Belle (the girl I put down) was originally my childhood friend. We named her Emilee and I just wanted to share pics of the cutie. She is turning out to be a good chicken Dog so far. She is 1/2 Rat Terrier 1/2 Catahoula Leopard Dog

    6 Weeks old



    10 Weeks old



    She has stolen all our hearts! That are silly Emilee!

    I have a 10 month old rat terrier and she hasn't been too bad with the chickens. Mostly she wants to play with them. I've just correct her when she acts too interested and she leaves them alone. It helps that the other dogs aren't interested at all. She only weights 10 lbs so the brahmas are much bigger than she is.
