Ok, so I have been looking for a dog to protect my livestock. I have ALOT of Chickens, ducks, quails, and two goats that will hopefully be mulitplying to a "few" goats by spring. My friends that have a goat and some pigs and ducks and chickens have been looking for a pyrenees. I saw someone giving two young 3.5 month old females away because they sold there goats. I called her for my friends. I have never had a pyrenees before or any kind of shepherd dog. The lady that owns them has 27 acre farm and lots of chickens and horses and dogs and had a herd of goats. She also has 4 small children. (I have a almost 3 yr old child). I talked with her all about her dogs and then done some reseach and read all about them on the web. My friends only want one dog and the lady does not want one to be left behind. I have decided to take the docile, more laid back one that is wonderful with her two smallest daughters. My friends that have the goat and mini farm want the other one. We are picking them up tomorrow, I am excited. This sounds like the perfect dog for us. My beagle is only good at what he's bred for, hunting. Big foot could come on my property and eat us all up and he would just look disturbed that he was awakin from his napping. Does anyone have any good stories or pics of their pyrenees that they would like to share? I knew pyrenees were bred to do exactly what i was looking for in a dog, i am always just skeptical of things i have no previoius experience with (this breed). And a dog is a HUGE comitment to me.
