|Yay! That you were able to get things sorted out with the fine and the sheriff, do you still have to go to court, or are all the legal issues taken care of?
How old is Brad's daughter? Old enough to understand what her actions and accusation caused? Regardless, I think a sit-down with her is in order, she needs to learn what false accusations can do to a person and animals. And she and her dad need to work with the dog that's been chasing you, it's dangerous for both you and the dog.
If the Rottweiler is killing for food and Brad has the know-how to train the dog to not chase livestock or can keep it completely separated, then it's up to him if he wants to keep it. If it's killing livestock for fun, then a professional trainer is in order, in my opinion. And probably should not be a country dog with all the tempting livestock around and all. If he can't keep it from chasing or killing livestock, then a call to AC would be the best thing for it. Better than being shot by some other rancher for chasing livestock. It's a sticky situation.
I'd say that you're a pretty good trainer if you've only had one issue with one chicken with one dog in three years! Your dogs aren't killers.
Good luck, glad things are starting to look up!
