Livestock Guardian Dogs (LGDs) are an invaluable addition to any farm. A good, working LGD will bond with livestock and protect them from predators. (Though, they're not fully trustworthy until they're 2 years old) Not to be confused with a guard dog, due to the strong bond they form, guardians protect their charges out of love. LGDs protect their charges best when they have at least one partner. Our livestock guardian dogs are not registered, as our primary focus is having good working stock.
Puppies are born and raised in a working environment and therefore, will be sold to working/farm homes only, after they are 8 weeks old. We believe it is very important for puppies to begin their new lives at that time, as that is when they start developing emotions and bonds.
Buyers can ask to be put on our "waiting list" at no charge (they can even pick what breeding they would like). Once we have a litter, I will contact the people on the list and work my way down until the litter is spoken for. A nonrefundable 50% deposit is required once a puppy is picked out. Any available puppies will be listed below.
Once the puppies reach 8 weeks of age, the buyers will have one week to pick them up. After that a $2/day boarding fee will be applied to the balance of the puppy.
Buyers of our puppies also get our support and advice.
We do offer stud services with our dogs.
Price: First pick of the litter or price of the highest dollar puppy.
Jax is an Anatolian Shepherd and new to us. We are very excited to add him to our Livestock Guardian pack!
Duke (neutered) was our very first LGD- he won our hearts and showed us what amazing dogs Great Pyrenees are. He is starting to show his old age and we are dreading the day he leaves us.
Mila is the youngest of the pack, but such a big girl! She is definitely still has so much puppy personality! She loves to play with anyone who is up for her games. Mila loves to tag along with Bella and Dexter as they confront predators. She is learning the ropes from two fabulous guardians and is starting to surpass them on her ability to recognize and alert us to new objects/potential threats.
Bella is our, hands down, BEST guardian. She is a very unique Great Pyrenees with her coloration and petite size. They say that big things can come in small packages and Bella proves that true, through and through. Bells does not wander from her charges. She will attack any dog through the fence that gets too close and even protects against arial predators.
Lilo is the puppy we retained from Mila & Jax's litter from January of 2021. So far, she is showing incredible guardian traits! She is very submissive, yet has such a beautiful confidence about her when she warns against new animals/things on the property. Visually, she looks like a miniature version of her sire (Jax). We are very excited to see what she becomes over the next few years. In 2023, we will breed her to our other male Dexter.
