I have a Nigerian dwarf goat that is severely overprotective of me. She attacked my puppy the other day and could’ve very well have broken his shoulder. Don’t worry. Puppy is fine. But this isn’t the first time this has happened. My previous dog also had to keep a sharp eye out because man her hackles would go up and she would chase him off. Today she threatened my sweet pig who was out snacking with the chickens with a rear and a flash of horns. She even followed around my young cockerel (who was very shy) who I was introducing to the flock with a hostile air. She had a herd mate however she died of SGDS. But she acted like this before her friend died but it wasn’t directed at me. It used to be her chickens and sometimes her herd mate. But now she’ll stand defensively in front of me if my dogs come down to the barn and try to butt them. Why?
