Be careful with them when they get older.

I had a Great Pyrenees that we would turn loose every night at 9pm to go patrol. She frequently came home in the morning with blood on her but never had a scratch. We never had a problem with anything getting killed. One of the neighbors was scared of her and kept calling the cops and even took a shot at her a couple of times (fortunately he is a lousy shot). There was no way to keep her penned or chained up because she was so strong. I gave her to a sheep farm to keep her from getting shot. 2 weeks later the coyotes showed back up.


Fortunately we have a new neighbor who is a much better shot and has done a good job of thinning the coyotes and foxes back down.

We used to have Newfies. When I was looking for land to build a new house, there was a real nice forty acre piece that had state forest around most of it. The neighbor warned me that they were losing a cow or 2 each year to idiots with guns. I had to skip the land because I knew some idiot would shoot the dogs and that I would then get my old army rifle and get them. It is very annoying to have to make allowances for idiots. BTW if you are a dog lover see the old Twilight Zone episode called "The Hunt". Good Luck, Rick.

Cute puppies. Hopefully they get the size and brains from the GP, my Boxers don't have 2 good brain cells between the two of them....hahaha, but they make life comical! :rolling:


I've gotten lucky, I've only lost a few chickens to fox and couple got taken away from either the big hawks or the two HUGE owls we have in the area. I think the coyotes are scared of my goats, those horns can tear ya up quick. :D
