Cinco Deseos Ranch LGDs Keep Goats Safe from Rattlesnake
© Copyright 2017 Brenda M. Negri
Another Cinco Deseos Ranch Livestock Guardian Dog success story!
A client who is a commercial goat rancher that contracts out on big weed and brush control jobs in Northern California contacted me today with a huge "saved the day" story about my LGDs. She owns seven LGDs from me: two purebred Spanish Mastiffs, one purebred Pyrenean Mastiff, and several crosses (1/2 Spanish Mastiff 1/4 Maremma 1/4 Anatolian). Three of the dogs were re-homed to her from another client in Texas who had to move and could no longer keep her livestock. The dogs fit right in and, as she writes below, are doing fabulous.
Here's her story on how her LGDs alerted she and her husband to a huge rattler in her goat kidding pens. It could have struck and killed any of her goats!
