The reason why is because last week on Thursday a dog came up in my yard. Mostly just sniffed around but Koda ran him off yelping his stub tail off. He lives 1 MILE AWAY! His owner demanded that if I saw his dog to call him. But should I? *needs advice here* And last saturday a dog named Gabby and her 2 year old pups came up into my yard. They were just sniffing around but 1 of them started chasing my chickens which is a big NO NO in Koda's book! My little Jap cockeral Salt attacked the dog who was chasing my chickens. She tried to snap at him but he jumped up with his spurs out and spured that dog right on the nose!!! She yelped with pain, Salt ran to his flock hidden in the bushes, and Koda came out of nowhere snarling. Gabby and her other pup ran off to the field, and Koda chased that pup who attacked my chickens across the road yelping in fright. But after I left for work today they came back. My mom ran out when she heard fighting dogs. Koda and that pup (who chased my chickens) were fighting each other. Mom (along with Koda) chased them off with a broom. Gabby is good with the neighbors chickens but her pups are not. But I am SO proud of my "Big White Overgrown Sized Pup!!!"
