Going to make 3 + hour road trip, one way to get a new dog. Ours got hit by a wild driver, intentionally I might say. Seen the vehicle go by several times in the past month, driving like he stole it. We live right on a sharp 90° turn on a rock road that turns to dirt just past our place. Nobody else lives on this road. I was outside and seen it all. Know the truck and just waiting for the right moment. That was 3 weeks ago and haven't had ANY vehicles past here since except for some cars driving slow out sight seeing.
Any way, I found the right dog at the right price and going to pick him up tomorrow. One BIG puppy at 12 weeks old now. Photo was taken when he was 10 weeks old. He is 1/2 Pyrenees, 1/4 Anatolian Shepherd and 1/4 Akbash. All are basically livestock guard dogs. He should be able to take care of any coyotes that come in to close with no problem.
