The Great Pyrenees

Page 1

After having trouble with fox and raccoons eating our guinea fowl and ducks, we decided it was time to try our shot at a flock guardian dog. We choose a 7 month old Great Pyrenees bred by Majesta Great Pyrenees. We named him Tundra. Before we adopted him, we had some concerns about the dogs age and his ability to acclimate with our animals, but decided to give it a try. Tundra came from West Virginia, but I met the breeder half way at a hotel in Virginia. In the city, Tundra was a bit skittish with all of the sights and sounds a city holds, but after the 5 hour drive home Tundra fit right in on our farm.

Tundra Meets the Farm

A white Great Pyrenees is sitting in a field next to a white with tan Bulldog who is licking its face. There is a fawn boxer dog standing next to the Great Pyrenees and a man and lady holding the Great Pyrenees and the Bulldog on leashes

Tundra meets Spike and Allie

Tundra meets the ducks!

He gave them a glance, but was more interested in sniffing the ground than he was with the ducks. He looked at them and then seemed to not give them a second thought.

A Great Pyrenees is being taken on walk. His mouth is open and tongue is out. There is a cat looking at the Great Pyrenees. There are two other cats on the right side of the image with their eyes glowing in the dark

Tundra after a visit in the duck pen. Notice the duck featherstuck to his tongue. He thoroughly sniffed out the duck area, but paid no mindto the ducks quacking near him. Also notice Tiger the cat checking him out andthe other two pare of cat eyes to the right.

A Great Pyrenees is looking up at a ledge in front of a window. On the ledge there are seven guinea fowl

Tundra visits the guinea coop. He gives the guineas only a momentary glance before giving the coop a total sniff over. The guineas are more interested in him than he is in them!

A large white Great Pyrenees has its mouth open and tongue out. It is exploring a chicken coop

Sniffing out the coop! Tundra seems very much at home, nothing like he appeared when I first met him in the city.

Tundra Meets Sammy the Cat

Tundra looks at the cat and walks away from it as if he has known it all his life and it just belongs there.

We have a lot of work to do with Tundra before he can be allowed to fully work the farm, but he shows excellent signs of being a wonderful working farm dog. I will introduce him to the horses sometime soon.
