I chose Millie on purpose from her breeders and basically I received her as a birthday gift from my husband and at the same time as "band aid" for the misfortune that met us with the previous female. Millie comes from a kennel, which is known mainly for successful show dogs. My intention, as with all our dogs, was to include her to the pastures as livestock guardian with the rest of the pack. Millie turned out as a real LGD. Her evaluation of situations and behavior overall leaves me daily speechless . She is always looking for the highest spot on the pasture, to my "joy" it is a 5 meter high pile of wood. She sits there, stares into the distance, and has an overview of everything. If she is not sitting on an elevated spot, she goes around the whole pastures back and forward several times, then she checks and sniffs all the sheep, or she patrols the gate. Thanks to her extremely strong guarding instincts even the village cats had no courage to come close to the pastures. Due to the fact that she is constantly in motion and really "works" on the pasture, she might most of the time skinny. This is another thing that I realized thanks to her, and how very strongly the environment affects both the health and, to a large extent, the appearance of any individual. Millie is like a gift from heaven. Not only does she have an absolutely amazing nature, she is also very smart and above all absolutely healthy. Millie corresponds in every way to my idea about a high quality female. I hope that she will pass on her qualities to her descendants.
