I hope this is the right group to post in. It seems most appropriate to me. I read where someone said that a Blue Heeler is a good work dog. I was wondering if i could also get some other recommendations for a good work dog that will understand that it has to guard the chickens (and me) and not eat them. I have just an acre and a half, and i want to find a good dog that will be happy guarding the place and not be a threat to my chickens or any other livestock i might acquire. Thanks a lot for your advice and recommendations.
