There is nothing like a good dog. They have been by our side since before the Neolithic period.
It’s arguable that they helped us survive some of the worst times in human history. Together man and dog have risen to heights unknown to any other species.
No creature is more revered by modern humans than the dog. For good reason.
Understandably, you want to have a dog that can survive the worst of times. This might come down to what you mean by surviving.
Are you looking for a companion that will be by your side?
Are you looking for a dog that can protect you and itself from threats?
If you are looking for a companion dog that is going to be around to keep you happy, go small.
Get your hands on a Jack Russel terrier. These dogs are small and little food will go a long way. Don’t forget, big dogs need lots of food!
Are you looking for a protector? The scary dogs are all good choices. From rotts to pinchers to shepherds, they are all dogs that are capable of hurting someone who tries to hurt you or your kids.
The pitbull is a great, loyal breed of dog that is smaller than the aforementioned, less food, but more tenacious.
Maybe your plan involves some work getting done. Well, on a homestead, it’s good to have a dog who can do some work or some herding.
Australian Cattle dogs are great options for work like this. These tenacious little dogs can make all the difference and keep an eye out for predators.
Dogs aren’t that easy to add to a survival plant but they balance life and remind you that this thing is a limited time offer!
