Zeus is our protector. He is an Anatolian Shepherd. We have a dozen coyotes living in a den a couple properties over. We got him to guard our animal families outside. He was such a beautiful puppy, actually he is still a puppy. He got his first rabbit at 10 weeks old. He is an Anatolian Shepherd and will definitely hit his 150 lbs. He steals the fire pit logs as chew toys. I had to cover the pond because he wouldn’t stay out of it and someone was eating all the fish. He is so sweet and mellow but has the most vicious and fierce bark. We are constantly surrounded by coyotes here and he is doing such a great job at keeping them off the property. His puppy love is in heat and the coyotes are coming more frequently right now. I am so happy that we brought him to Lil Goat Town.
Hera is our other protector. She is also an Anatolian Shepherd. While Zeus tends to stay on the fence line Hera tends to stay back closer to the animals. She works with Zeus protecting the animals. She is the sweetest dog and tries hard with the goats but some of my older goats still haven’t warmed up to her. She loves her toys and sticks just like any other dog would. She likes to howl a bit before her ferocious bark comes out. She gets bored and digs the most massive holes. I am so glad that she is here with us at Lil Goat Town.
Lola was the family secret. 12 years ago I walked into the bathroom and said “ I smell dog” but we didn’t have animals. About a week later my children were all busted! In my youngest kids bedroom, in a barbie tent, there she was. The tiniest little puppy peeking her head out with the sweetest eyes. They had hidden that dog from me for at least 2 weeks. Needless to say Lola became part of our family.
Leila is my farm girl. She goes everywhere I go. Half the time I step on her because she is under my feet or she is stepping on my heals. She spends all day doing farm chores with me or just laying around until I’m done. I chose her as a puppy because when I bent down towards her she just rolled over for me to pet her tummy. Done, she is coming home with us.
