I've been looking into adopting a young Anatolian Shepherd - Great Pyrenees mix who was surrendered as a failed LGD and the shelter is offering him up as "pet only." Wondering if anyone on here has any experience turning a working dog into a pet or if there's no way this'll work and I'm crazy for considering it (and the shelter crazy for offering him as a pet). He would NOT have a guarding job at my house, as our chickens are locked up and fine as is. Only "job" I can think of for him is accompanying me as I work in the yard and garden or maybe being a jogging partner but I don't know if that'll satisfy him enough to keep him from becoming bored and destructive. He does seem calm and even tempered for his age, but of course it's hard to judge a dog in a shelter environment.
