Our rural community, where houses are spaced like 100 to 300 acres apart, has a wandering great pyrenese. Some of the kids call him Murray. No one claims Murray or truly looks out for him; short of tossing him food sometimes. He hasn't had vet care or any of the care a pet dog usually gets. Murray wanders from house to house, staying awhile before moving on. Due to the all the farms around he is used to being around horses, cattle, commercial chicken houses and backyard birds. He's been hanging around here lately. He hasn't bothered my birds. Our two GSDs stay in the house most of the time. They don't bother my chickens either, but I don't leave them alone with them. I'm wondering if I should try to encourage Murray to stay full-time. I would provide him with vet care, good food and he can get out of the weather in one of the outbuildings. The only thing is, I couldn't have him in the house. Jax and Kane would not like that, at all. Should I encourage Murray to settle down and stay awhile? What is it about GPs and their need to wander?
