I had an Anatolian Shepherd before I moved to Utah...unfortunately he thought cats and chickens were lunch so he went back to his breeder to be rehomed. He also barked/whined/made noise constantly - if he was awake, you knew it LOL! But he did a great job of watching over my rabbits...... Now I'm all settled in here in Utah, and I've got chickens and rabbits and goats that really could use a LGD. My property backs up to a waterway, and there's horse pastures behind that.... per my neighbors, we have skunks/foxes/weasels/etc that can and will climb the 6-foot chainlink fence to snack on livestock. It is possible to find a LGD who wouldn't bark constantly, and wouldn't dig up my pasture? I have an in-ground sprinkler system, and I can't afford to have that dug up/chewed on. My pasture is also only about half an acre, so its way too small for a large LGD who is bred to roam large farms. Donkeys and Llamas are out of the question, due to local regs (I can only have a certain # of livestock on my property). Suggestions???
