This is my first time posting on this forum, and unfortunately it is under a sad topic.
Me and my wife have two dogs a German Shepard and a Staffordshire Terrier. We have had them for almost 5 years. It was through our dogs that we meet at the dog park. They actually introduced us, and we have been married now for almost two years. We both wanted to start our own homestead and two years ago bought a few acres with a home to create our own little homestead. Obviously the dogs came with. About 9 month back we added to our property 2 baby goats that we were going to start our herd from. We installed an in ground electric fence to separate the dogs from the area the goats and chickens had. We knew that they would not get along, and we needed to keep the separate. The goats and chickens have their own fenced in acre. Everything seemed to be ok until last week we were on vacation and got a call from our friend who was watching the animals for us that she came home to find the dogs in the fenced in area for the goats, and the goats were dead. We are both heartbroken that the dogs would do that, and we are at a loss of what to do. We want to continue to follow our passion and keep goats on the property but don't know if that is possible with the dogs at this point.
I guess I am reaching out to see if anyone else has gone through this or if anyone has any advice or tips or what to do.
Thanks in advance
