The Great Pyrenees
After having trouble with fox and raccoons eating our guinea fowl and ducks, we decided it was time to try our shot at a flock guardian dog. We choose a 7 month old Great Pyrenees bred by Majesta Great Pyrenees. We named him Tundra. Before we adopted him, we had some concerns about the dogs age and his ability to acclimate with our animals, but decided to give it a try. Tundra came from West Virginia, but I met the breeder half way at a hotel in Virginia. In the city, Tundra was a bit skittish with all of the sights and sounds a city holds, but after the 5 hour drive home Tundra fit right in on our farm.
Tundra Meets the Farm
Tundra meets Spike and Allie
Tundra meets the ducks!
He gave them a glance, but was more interested in sniffing the ground than he was with the ducks. He looked at them and then seemed to not give them a second thought.
Tundra after a visit in the duck pen. Notice the duck feather stuck to his tongue. He thoroughly sniffed out the duck area, but paid no mind to the ducks quacking near him. Also notice Tiger the cat checking him out and the other two pare of cat eyes to the right.
