Our Great Pyranees are Sophie (b. 4/2016) and Louie (b 5/2017).
(photos coming soon, it’s nearly impossible to get these two to pose, they want to play)
The Great Pyranees breed are natural protectors, and sometimes herders as are these two.
Sophie and Louie each instinctively began herding the goats by the time they were only about two months of age. They also stood guard to protect the herd, at the same time.
Sophie worked alone for her first year. We brought Louie into the family so she would have a partner, playmate and hopefully, a mate. Both dogs have exceptional personalities. Playful, loving and friendly in addition to being a great working team.
We’ve sold off the goat herd and the pair now guard the chicken flock with Sophie patroling the perimeter and Louie working as second line of defense close to his flock.
They do all this instinctively so no training is required.
We are still waiting for them to mate and create a litter of beautiful pups early next summer. There is a waiting list for pups, and since a litter will produce six to eight pups, quantity is very limited. Please contact me if you are interested in joining the wait list.
More information about the litter will be posted as it becomes available.
