Anyone looking for a farm/guardian dogs? Our Anatolian Shepherd/Great Pyrenees ladies made friends with the neighbor’s dogs. Now we’ve got just shy of a dozen bundles of hungry joy. We have two girls from the first litter that are ready now. The one being held by my son is the runt for someone who isn’t looking for an 80lbs. dog. The other girl is a fluffy giant getting ready to pounce on her sister.

The second litter will be ready on April 25. We have 4 boys and a single girl from the litter. All are currently living in our barn with pigs and chickens with no issues.

We can make sure they have their first shots unless you are opposed. We’ve been feeding them the Kirkland brand puppy chow with no issues.

PM for more info or to meet your new best friend!!!

Maybe a bit far, but Walter Jeffries from is looking for females of working dogs. He has also pigs. Do you think of all the people of  permies someone is travelling this direction?

He is looking since quite some time now.
And seems to do an amazing job with his pigs, he published quite a lot of interesting stuff on free range pigs.

Oh, I WISH! We're still building our fences though. I hear that livestock dogs like to wander, making fences are rather a good (necessary) thing.

hans, I wish I could bring him a couple!! If I could justify the trip it would be fun to see his operation!! He's given me some great advice in the past and I love his threads.

Jocelyn, we had really great luck at the beginning by walking our dogs around the property daily and enforcing boundaries even where there wasn't a fence. That did break down when our neighbors invited the dogs over to their property. Now we have some dogs that think the world is their oyster.

We have some friends who did the same thing with their LGD's and now even though the dogs CAN get through the fence, they only do it when they are let out(to chase off coyotes)!
