Our farm is patrolled by some wonderful dogs. We raise Great Pyranees. We have just fallen in love with this breed. They do a great job protecting our children, our animals, and our farm. One thing I love about them is they are NOT herding dogs. They are *livestock guardian dogs*. They are not going to herd my children or my goats… nipping at their heels. They are going to take seriously though any perceived threat to their domain. At the same time they are very visitor friendly. They LOVE company and see visitors as just more people to give them lovies.
We have been blessed with 2 batches of puppies this year.
Trixie and Duke had 11 puppies in early July. These puppies are now 17 weeks old and several have gone to their new homes, but we still have a few waiting for the perfect family and farm. These pups have had their first 3 rounds of shots and have been learning well how to guard the animals and the farm. The puppies are well acquainted with goats, cows, pigs, cats, chickens, turkeys, and a whole host of farm animals. Their momma Trixie has been the main *goat dog* on our farm. She and Muffin have both taken these pups in… paw.

Look a chicken…. chickens are friends, not food.

Good manners! Waiting *semi* patiently while the younger pups eat first.
Muffin and Duke had 9 puppies in September. These puppies are now 7 weeks old and a couple have gone to their new homes, but we still have a some waiting for the perfect family and farm. These pups have had their first round of shots. Just last week they moved from the puppy yard to having the run of the farm under watchful eyes. The puppies are getting acquainted with the goats, cows, pigs, cats, chickens, turkeys, and a whole host of farm animals.

Aren’t I cute???
With 8 children of various ages at home and lots of visitors these guys and gals are very child and people friendly.

Muffin adopted Samuel as her charge to protect.
Trixie is the mom of the older puppies.
Duke is the father to both sets of pups.
We have puppies for sale from both groups. If I counted right we still have 4 females and 1 male from the older group. They are $100each. We also have several puppies from the younger batch of both genders. They are currently $80each.
