Most of you do not know this but Angel (the black German Shepherd with Zeby) is 8 years old and grew up on my farm in Florida (before we moved with Clay to Botswana) and she was the “Mother” of all the animals. German Shepherds have a natural instinct to herd animals. Angel was such an asset on the farm because she took care of Pygmy Goats, Horses, Cows, Swans, Emus, Chickens, Turkeys and even Cats. She would make sure they all were clean and safe. Angel has never hurt another animal. She also is a great Mother to her own puppies and adopted ones.
So, it is no surprise that she takes care of Zeby. In the pictures, Angel is cleaning and making sure Zeby is OK. In a couple of the pictures Angel looks aggressive with Zeby, but she just gets excited when cleaning him. One can see from the next picture that she is only taking care of him. Zeby and Angel have a bond and good relationship. If Zeby wanted, he could really hurt or kill Angel. So, I don’t worry about Zeby when Angel and he are together.
