These three were up to no good, as usual.
Actually, there was a bit of feathers there where a fox had made a kill the night before and they were all trying to get a sniff.

they remind me of a Cerberus! Nicely done. What breed are they?

Uh oh! Looks like trouble! Very cool how their coats blend with the brush behind them.

Yeah, I definitely see it, just that the Cerberus has a better temper.:eek:
They definitely do blend in with their surroundings Jas, and makes it very difficult to pick them out in the bush or grass fields unless they are moving.
The breed is a Cao de Fila de Sao Miguel. They are a rare rustic breed that comes from the Azores Islands of Portugal. We got them to control the bison, and to guard the homestead, as we live in the middle of nowhere, on a dead end road. Definitely NOT the breed for everyone, and I would NEVER have one in a heavily populated area.
