Ever Faithful…

That is our Dugur dog, he takes his job seriously.  Even when he appears to be asleep, if something suspicious happens he is up and going quicker than a flash.  Today he is busy patrolling the pasture, keeping the sheep and chickens safe…







Not only is a wonderful Livestock Guardian but a part of the family…

    He is absolutely beautiful! I love my Great Pyrenees, but I sometimes wonder what it would be like to have one that wasn’t so messed up as my Stella.

    Good working dog. Great photos. I hope to find a good LSG dog this year to protect calves and fowl from the hundreds of coyotes in this area. I am going to look at a litter of Maremma/Pyranees pups next week. Have looked at a few rescue dogs, but no match yet.
    Come visit my Vermont herd when you have a chance: http://www.tailgait.blogspot.com
