Herding Dogs.  Stock Dogs.  Livestock Guardian Dogs.  Sheepdogs.  These are the ages old,  go-to canines of herd, livestock and flock-keepers round the world, known for their ability to move and protect valuable animals as well as provide assistance and companionship to their human counterparts.

hyper-attentive nature and the natural camouflage.  (If you are having a hard time spotting the canine, just look for the red arrows.)
