Great Pyreneed BEAUTIFUL
« on: October 15, 2005, 08:10:23 am »
I just saw my first GP in person. OMG He was just beautiful. BIG too. I have seen lots of pictures but I have never seen one.
I think I want one. LOL Someday.
OH Yah the one I saw LIVES with sheep. He is the best sheep dog these people have ever had. I told them about big paws hope they come and post pictures.

Being that we do so many All-Breed dog shows I have seen many GP's ... they are a beautiful dog and seem to have a great temperament ...

I breed them!!   They are Americas best kept secret as they are WONDERFUL pets as well as being guards.  You can have 2 or three of these in the house and they are less trouble than one smaller dog!

Would a Great Pyrenees heard cows the same as sheep?? I think my Dad needs one of these dogs on his farm. LOL He has a older collie ,a mix breed and his girlfriend just bought a poodle.  :-\ so im sure they could use a real farm dog. Apparently there are quite a few around I just havent seen them. Ill definately be keeping my eyes open.

Coonie, Pyrs arn't herding dogs that are livestock gaurd dogs...The only time they will "herd" is too push the livestock back into a corner if there is a threat...The senior pack members will confront & ward off the threat & the younger dogs will hold the livestock back...Ideally to gaurd livestock efficiantly, 4 dogs would be used, 2 to take on the predator (s) & 2 to keep the livestock back safely...Where Samson came from though there were only 2 adults that worked...Samso n's breeder has a sheep farm & also raises Border Collies which she used to herd.

That's very interesting. Do you think they would consider a brood of other dogs their "herd" and protect them as well?

Pyrs do consider other dogs and family members as their herd.

Oh, you know I'm joking. I could never do that to another dog lover. However, we really do need to get a "Deep South BPO Day" scheduled, don't we??

Absolutely Jeanne!...Samson & Pippin gaurd everything they consider their "charge"...Cats, bunnies, kids, my hubby, me...If someone gets too close to the house while we are in the yard Samson is at the fence going off & Pippin "holds' us back...lol...H ere is Pippin gaurding his bunnies when they go out in the yard....B.t.w., I don't think you'd stand a chance of taking Samson but Pippin is so sweet...A little sweet talk & he'd be yours...lol!
