Noah's mom says: Noah is the most wonderful large dog I've ever owned. He is a livestock guardian dog, or LGD. Livestock guardian dogs are different than other dogs in the way they interact with people, other animals, and the livestock they are bred to protect. These dogs have been bred for thousands of years to protect all different kinds of livestock, and they are very very good at it. If you are protected by an LGD, you know without a doubt you are safe. Noah is a love. He is fun, playful, smart, sweet, and funny. I wouldn't change a thing about him. We are safe here because of him. When I hear him barking at night, I know the coyotes will be staying away, and that my chickens, horses, cats, and Shelties are safe from being attacked by predators. He is worth his weight in gold!
