Livestock Guardian Dogs (LGD’s) aka Tom the Maremma

These animals are truly amazing. They bond with your livestock and work day & night to protect them from harm. Tom recently featured in the Mount Barker Courier newspaper as a working dog in the Adelaide Hills. Livestock guardian dogs are being noticed because of movies like “ODDBALL” but we truly admire their hard work and 24/7 attitude to protecting their “flock”. Now Tom doesn’t get a day off, he lives with our chickens and protects them from all manner of predators such as foxes and hawks. So we don’t know what he’d do on a “day-off,” but we feel this photo comes close to visualizing what he’d be doing if he got an RDO. Thanks Tom, your a Marvel!
