Buster after killing possum Dec 2014

Olde Dog has been tracking something in our yard for the past couple of days and has been very restless at night. Young Dog was following Olde Dog. Watching and learning.

This morning, a possum finally made the mistake of thinking it could take Olde Dog. We’re sure Young Dog jumped in to help, but Olde Dog didn’t back down. He has bite wounds just under his eye, over his eye, and several bites on the top of his head. He obviously kept facing it.

The possum had wounds on its chest and abdomen. And no, it wasn’t ‘playing’ dead. It was.

Possums are notorious chicken predators known for raiding nests and killing and eating even adult chickens. Olde Dog is an excellent Chicken Guardian Dog. Young Dog couldn’t have a better trainer.
