This would be Cocoa. He is in charge of everything! Cocoa is a mini long haired dachshund who came to us from a friend who had rescued him from a not so desirable situation. He was 3 years old at that time. He rules the farm, the border collies, the kennel, and the sheep [although they ignore him]! Oh, and did I say he rules us, as well!
Pearl is a newer addition to our guard dogs. She is a cross of Akbash and Anatolian breeds. She was 2 when she arrived and was already established as a guardian of sheep. Thank you Sharon Nunan and Ron Mcgettigan!
This is Annie, a Maremma guard dog. We got her as a 4 to 6 month old pup; she is now 5 years old. We raised her with our sheep and that is where she always wants to be! They are her family and she takes her job very seriously!
