    We have a few pups not spoken for out of our Maremma litter born last Sunday.
    These pups are out of working lines, both parents are here on the farm and guard sheep and chickens (we also have cattle).
    We breed a litter only every 3-4 years simply for replacements for our farm since over the years we simply haven't found guardians we have been as impressed with as our own.
    Pups were born in the barn with the livestock and will be raised with the livestock until they are ready to leave between 8 and 11 weeks. They will have first shots, worming, and will be microchipped.
    Deposits of $300 will hold a pup. These are working dogs, not pets!
    Although very intuitive and great with children they will only go to working homes.
    Pics of the parents can be seen on our website... www.red-ridge-farm.com
