    Looks like we will be getting a Great Pyrenees/Mastiff pup that was born in August. Its a male and I have two names picked out. Either "Turk" (off of Swiss Family Robinson",lol) or "Jax", just because I like the sound of it.
    Any other suggestions for names are welcome too![​IMG]

    The name Turk is a good one....but I really like Jax. We just named our new kitten Jax. Well his real name is Jitterbug Jaxson Ja Ja Binxy, but we call him Jax. I have always loved that name.

    show us pics when you get him...please?

    I am trying to figure out a name for a female German Shepard I am getting for Christmas. What is a Great Pyrenees? Never heard of it. This is going to be a big dog, isn't it? I have never owned a male dog. Jax is a good name. I always like the name Jack for a male dog.

    A friend of mine had a pure Great Pyrenees that was solid white. They named her "Charmin" like the bathroom tissue.

    Great dog but dumb as a post. They had to put a hot wire up to keep the thing from breaking the windows to chase people on bicycles. She did not want to catch the people she just wanted to run with them.

    When you get it be sure to post pics. I am interested to see how much of the Mastiff shines through.

    We are getting him from some people in Illinois. I think there are four pups left?
    Ours is one they nicknamed the "Big Beagle" because he is shorter haired like a mastiff. The owner seemed to think some of the spotting might fade as he gets older.
    I think I am going with "Turk" as one of our other dogs is "Max". Too close to "Jax",lol.
    I have had a Great Pyrenees before, named "Molly" but never owned a mastiff. Molly was a great dog.
    Keeping my fingers crossed, calling on some more properties tomorrow and trying to sell this one.
    There are a LOT of good acreages out there right now, I dont mind fixer uppers. I have been looking in MN, WI, IA, IL and MI. Did some searching in western NY as well, but think I will stay in the midwest!
