in the village, I started with 7 dogs, brought in as puppies and the female
of 6 years from an urban kennel. Currently they are 12, the other 4 were
born at my home, but from the last two, I should probably get rid of,
because they cause too many problems.
I nearly made a mistake by giving them away as they were too rough, but
I left them at home for over a month and now they are much calmer. Especially
the first one, called Mali, is one of the best dogs I have raised so far.
They are about 1 year old, only 64-65 cm high, but they are really spinning
like a top. The first dog still resists towards the older dogs and when
protecting the sheep at night it is still among the best.
Before my dogs wore protector collars, but as they fought among each other,
they don’t wear them anymore and I think these collars are not necessary,
because they are never alone, they are always in pairs, and so I hope
they will not die. Mali is a real danger; he turned a dog, a few months
older than him, upside down. This dog had this collar, and Mali didn’t.
It lasted only 15 to 20 sec, the time that I arrive to separate them.
Fortunately, he did not loose any tooth, only his lip was cut. For a long
time I haven’t seen such a courageous dog!
From two dogs on this picture the lighter colour one is a female aged
between 16 and 17 months, the second is a male of 3.5 years. They have
no problem with their movements or their legs, on the contrary, the male
and his son are the most agile of all my dogs.
