Barb- Yes, GPs can/will roam. I don't know much at all about Happy's parents. I put the word out that I was looking for a GP, and she came from a friend of a friend. Not the best situation...and I wasn't thrilled at her age (she was only 7 weeks when we got her...I would have prefered that she stayed with her momma and learned about farm life), but we decided to take our chances and see what happened.
Almost all of our farm is fenced with 4 ft. cattle wire fencing. (Not barbed wire). While they are apt to roam, they aren't apt to jump fences...so we'll see what happens. She's an outside dog, and has free range, but so far has absolutely no interest in being anywhere where we are not. She stays on the porch waiting for us to come back outside. I am hoping she will show a bit more interest in protecting the livestock soon....my chickens keep disappearing...and that is the reason why we have her.
Duke is a English Shepherd. A very old breed, yet not in the AKC. There aren't many breeders around, and we're very happy to have him. Some also know the breed as "Farm Collie".
