Working dogs are standard fixtures on every farm in Australia. 

Kelpies and border collies work with sheep...and the Australian blue heeler are the automatic choice for many who work with cattle.

My micro-farm is tiny (just under a quarter of an acre) so I have a working dog to match.

Meet Darci...my four-year old Maltese Terrier.  She's our guardian dog...and the photo shows her keeping guard from the vantage point of my bed.   If allowed, she would keep our place completely free of birds (for whom she has contempt) and she barks to alert us to the presence of  people (whether they are there or not).  Here main work is what I'd describe as 'working her ticket'...angling to get what she wants.
