Know of an unemployed farm dog?

Many of you know Bo, our old Australian Shepherd, who so faithfully hung out at the front of the store. Bo died Thursday.  Although we are sad to lose him, it's been hard to see him so ill. Bo's passing leaves a big job to our other dogs.  With cows, horses, goats, and chickens  to watch over, we always knew to take it especially seriously if Bo barked in the night.
We need to find another farm dog. I know we ask a lot of a dog. He has to be a perfect gentleman with literally thousands of people who visit the store, never showing any aggression or unease, but alerting us if they venture too far, like into the house or barns unescorted! He has to be beyond kind and considerate of our 9 grandchildren. He can't chase cars or horses but will occasionally be asked to shoo the chickens off the deer corn we have for sale. He needs to live outdoors and not stray off our property into the deadly road out front.
In return, it's not a bad place to be a dog. Someone is always outside. August to January, our dogs get continual attention in the form of throwing the ball or just a pat on the head from all our dog-loving customers. In the quiet months in spring and summer, there's trucks to ride in and woods to romp in. He or she would live at a meat plant, enough said.
We'd love to have another Australian Shepherd but would consider a German Shepherd, golden retriever or a mixed breed. We've not had good luck with hounds as they find the allure of woods with no fences too much to ignore.   If you know of a dog, young or old, looking for a job and a loving home, contact us.
