Mary Lou has lived with chickens guineas, sheep
and has worked
goats. She is a very willing dog with a strong sense of
the rules and a strong desire to please.
seldom barks when herding, only works when needed and
uses shouldering and upright posture. She often grips the nose
or hock with a very light grip- never breaks the skin.
She often returns
escapees to their proper pen and always barks to alert people to escapees.
She will either push or gather, working to
achieve the end result. She loves her goats and will
protect them from intruders. Mary Lou loves to enforce the rules
on her charges, keeping them where they belong in the daily
eliminates pests and rodents.
Lou loves children and protects her baby as she does her pups.
She is very protective of her
family. She is normally ready to make friends as soon as she is
introduced, but she is not comfortable with strangers picking up
the 9 month old baby, and lets them know it by low soft growling
and eyeing them.
She will not hesitate to confront strange intruders, but her
mouth is very soft.
