These Canine Johnny Appleseeds Are Equipped With Special Vests
#1. Getting Ready To Sow
This unusual animal job is reminiscent of the deeds of an early 19th century American folk hero whose real name was John Chapman. His nickname, Johnny Appleseed, came from his mission to plant apple trees wherever he could throughout the United States. These Border Collies are performing an unusual animal job by dispersing seeds wherever they go throughout the forest via their special vests and attached satchels that are filled with the seeds of endemic plants.
#2. Off To Work
The Dogs Get Tasty Rewards When They Return From their Animal Jobs
Helping to restore the more than 112 acres of forest is an important albeit unusual animal job, but it is one these three Border Collies take on with gusto. Their love of running makes this unusual animal job one they seem to enjoy. They are rewarded with snacks when they return from a run and then Torres fills up their satchels, drives to another area of the forest and they jump from the truck and start all over again, dispersing seeds while running and playing through the charred wood.
