Well I saw an ad for a free mature Maremma male and called the lady up. Seems the owner moved without the dog, so the neighbour was finding it a new home. Drove to see him yesterday and took him home. It was a long day, 9 hours of driving but he seems like a great dog, really good with the poultry, he used to guard Muscovie ducks there. If I had to guess I'd say he is a Maremma/Akbash cross, but who knows really. Don't care either! She thinks he was a year old when he moved in there, and that was 5 years ago so he is at least 6. His name is Scarchelli, he will come to Archie.
