I cannot believe our luck. A shelter called us today with just the dog we've been looking for. This one is a Great Pyrenes/Anatolian Shepherd mix. He is four months old and his name is Max. Our girls (hens) are a little indignant but they'll get over it - especially when he protects them from whatever tries to get to them. Max is already wanting to 'play' with the girls but they're not having any part of it - yet! If they don't get to know him now, he'll outgrow the age where they can gang up on him and peck his nose. We got him for a $60 donation and I'm telling you what... this dog is has such a great nature! We are so happy we waited for the right one. Does anyone have any training tips?
