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.

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.

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
is also a Great Pyrenees, always loves the babies - no matter what species. She has fearlessly and single- handedly treed bears on more than one occasion! She's now 13 years old and retired. Currently her main job is to make sure the living room rug doesn't fly away!

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 14 years old, loves to go for rides, and eat junk food! Well, who doesn't?

Cruz
is an 8 week old Vizsla pup and is my current "just for fun" dog. His whole litter had a bit of a rough start but thanks to the dedicated folks in rescue, all 10 of the pups have found loving, furever homes. And yes, his ears are as soft and velvety as they look!

Gabriel
a 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.

Indy
a Weimaraner, was my "just for fun" dog who was always willing to go hiking, ride in the car, play ball, or just snuggle on the couch. And let's not overlook all the commands he learned - about a hundred of them. Sadly he crossed the rainbow bridge quite a few years ago at age 13 1/2.
