    So many people ask what kind of dogs make good farm dogs and there's really just SO many. I thought it would be cool to star a thread to post pictures and list what breed(s) your farm dog is, kind of to help those people out there that are looking into getting/adopting a new dog or puppy for their farm or flock home.

    Here's mine. [​IMG]

    Name: Jemma
    Breeds: Doberman/Rottweiler mix
    Sex: Female
    Current Age: 19wks old
    On the Farm? She LOVES the birds, she goes and sleeps in the chicken coop when i'm outside or she'll sun bathe with the hens. She never bothers the ducklings or eggs either. She is very scared of the cows though!! [​IMG]

    Jemma & HER Bird!

    Here's my farm dog....Well, I don't have a full blown farm but I have six wooded acres and two chicken coops.....


    She's an Irish Terrier, and she seems to really like my turkeys! Her name is Fionna. She's a bit bigger now, but looks exactly the same as in this pic.
