Paw Paw is a great guardian. She grooms the baby livestock and prefers to watch over them than go in the house at night. If a threatening predator enters the territory, she will chase it off and then celebrate her accomplishment. She treed a opossum family that was out to raid the hen house. She patrols the perimeter and does not leave home.
Paw Paw is a sufficient herder, using dominance behaviors and shouldering to move the stock in the right direction. She will bark often to keep them moving.
Paw Paw will seek out vermin and eliminate them. She is friendly with dogs who have been properly introduced. She announces the arrival of strangers and is particularly good with children.
