Livestock Guardians

Livestock guardian dogs are large, thickly coated, and immensely powerful working dogs bred to deter livestock-stealing wolves and other predators. These steadfast guardians usually exhibit a Zen-like calm, but they can quickly spring into action and move with grace and speed to meet a threat. These gentle giants bond very closely with whatever they're guarding, taking their job as protectors very seriously.

Libby is actually a Colorado Mountain Dog, a fairly new breed which is a combination of various livestock guardian breeds of livestock guardian dogs combined to accentuate the best traits of each.

Mobirise

Charlie is a Great Pyrenees and is new to our farm having arrived as a 3 month old pup. He has grown quickly to over 110 lbs at a year old and has learned his role as guardian admirably. He loves to patrol the fenceline to establish a protective perimeter.

Mobirise

Rosie is also a Great Pyrenees and is Charlie's sister and littermate. She too is developing into an outstanding guardian. A bit shier than Charlie, she is quite content to sleep with her goats when they're relaxing in the barn or just hang out with them in the pasture.

Remi

Remi, Great Pyrenees, always loves the babies - no matter what species. She is now 12 1/2 years old and is retired. Currently her main job is to make sure the living room rug doesn't fly away!

Gabriel

Gabriel, Great Pyrenees, crossed the Rainbow Bridge in the fall of 2018 at the ripe old age of 13 1/2. During his time as active guardian he particularly loved the chickens and was once found laying on a clutch of eggs. When we convinced him to get off the nest we found he hadn't broken even one! Truly a gentle giant that has earned his rest.

Sammy

And no home would be complete without a rugrat! Sammy was found as a stray and he's thought to be a poodle dachshund cross. He's about 11 years old, loves to go for rides, and eat junk food! Well, who doesn't?
