Coming from sheep country (the Shropshire - Welsh borders) I do know of one potential 'miracle' but it depends on the age and size of the dog.
If you have access to a grumpy old sod of a ram who weighs a ton more than the dog, then put the dog in with him. Remain to supervise obviously. Get the dog out after he has been beaten up, but before he sustains serious injury.
- harsh, but when the choice is between that and a bullet, most farmers I knew were willing to give the dog a chance.
Oh, one other suggestion. My dog used to have a go at my pigs through an electric fence. One time he lunged at the pig and got zapped by an electric fence on the nose. For ever after that he was convinced that pigs give electric shocks and would never go near one again.
Get up, get going, seize the day. Enjoy the sunshine, the rain, cloudy days, snowstorms, and thunder. Getting on your horse is always worth the effort.
