This is our dog, Brie. She came to us six months ago and decided that she would adopt us as her family. We are not sure what type of breed she is. But with her huge ears and gentle brown eyes, she won our hearts.
She is quite good at digging up my flower garden, taking my neighbors' dog toys without asking, chewing up shoes, and treeing the cats. But recently, we found out that she is also good at guarding our free range chickens.
Each afternoon, she waits patiently by the gate until they are released in our backyard.
And with her big, black tail wagging, she happily strolls where ever the chickens go. If she hears a chicken squawk, she is the first one there to see what is happening.
Her work is not done until the last of our 18 hens are safely roosting in their hen house.
And we are so glad she came to us and made us her family.
