They could get out with the pack and livestock earlier if they’d quit messing around and eat🙄 Opie is the only one who listens.

****SOLD**** Jubilee Is Looking For Her Forever Home
Jubi is a 3 year old spayed female ¾ Spanish Mastiff and 1/8 each Anatolian Shepherd and Maremma cross looking for a new job and family. She has experience with sheep, goats and chickens. She is the best poultry guardian I’ve ever seen, she even sleeps with her chickens if given the opportunity. I have seen her chase hawks away numerous times, other predators don’t even make an effort. She is also good with other livestock animals but her real love seems to be chickens. Jubi needs to either be an only dog or the only female as she is a queen bee and just doesn’t tolerate other females, but gets along well with all our male dogs. She’s a big girl, about 33” at the shoulder and was 170 lbs at her last vet visit. Interested parties can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org

Fondue (Fawni) is For Sale
Unfortunately, Fawni’s buyer was not able to take her puppy at the last minute, so we are looking for her forever home. Fawni was born 2/16/17 so is 13 weeks old from the current Sele x Oso litter. She weighs 51 lbs. and is UTD on all vaccinations and worming, she had her first vet visit and received her health certificate on May 1st. Fawni currently spends her days with her parents, and other pack members on our ewe and lamb pasture, and is in daily contact with chickens who also free range in that pasture. She is a large, confident girl, and thanks to her experiences in our pack has a pretty good idea of what her job will be as she grows. Fawni would do well in an existing pack, and we are looking for a home where she will have plenty of interaction with humans, other dogs, and livestock. Below, is a video of Fawni with her dad Oso (really blowing coat!) and some still shots. If you would like more information on her and an application, please email us here: email@example.com
Today is Chili’s last day with our pack, he will be heading to CA tomorrow to join Lynn and Mike Hodson’s pack, where he will meet his two half sisters Juju and Kai. Here is a photo of Chili with two of his favorite playmates and two videos. The first is just Chili being cute, and the second is Chili and his mama playing together….well Chili getting rolled around by his mama might be more accurate. The top photo, is the one that means the most to me. Our dogs here are very protective of their puppies. Until they reach somewhere around 4 months old, puppies are not normally allowed to spend a lot of time hanging around our fencelines, particularly our gates. If a pup catches the attention of an older dog they will usually run them off. Our Great Pyrenees, Thor began a tradition, or ritual that started with Sele and Violet and continues with every puppy who reaches that age here. Today I happened to look outside and saw Sele, Besi, and Brava with Cersei and Chili very deliberately walking the fence line, I grabbed a jacket and headed out there, but all I got was this one photo of the girls coming back and Chili sitting in front of the gate. However I feel fortunate to have caught at least the tail end of this cool doggie tradition. I’m also surprised that Chili was invited along at this age, he’ll be 12 weeks old tomorrow. It is almost like they know he is leaving in the morning and decided to give him a fabulous send off. Good luck in your new home Chili, we will look forward to hearing about your new adventures and watching you grow into the wonderful guardian you were bred to be!

Dorito Litter Week Six
Sele and Oso’s litter is now 6 weeks old. They have been wormed 3 times and have had their first vaccinations. They have spent their days with our pack of adult and teenaged dogs, goats and kids, ewes and lambs, chickens, an elderly Scottish Terrier, a young, active Corgi, 4 children under the age of 9, and a very friendly Manx kitty. This will be their life for the next 4 weeks. We still have 3 ewes due to lamb, so unless they are born in the middle of the night, the puppies will have a chance to witness that as well. All 8 puppies are outgoing and very affectionate in their own ways. I will contact each of my puppy buyers to discuss their choices, today. Enjoy the photos!
Happy National Puppy Day!
Sele’s Doritos Are 4 Weeks Old, and Are Out With The Pack
The Doritos are now old enough to take their place outside with the rest of the pack and livestock. They are pretty exhausted at the moment as they spent the morning moving, having photos taken and meeting everyone, after a big meal of goats milk and ground beef, they cuddled up with mom and are taking a well earned nap!
Sele’s Doritos 3 Weeks Old and Busy!
Sele’s kids are growing and developing quickly. As you can see in the video, they want out of the puppy pen so they can start to explore. Our grandson spent the weekend with us, and he and the pups had a great time playing on the floor and getting some puppy/kid bonding time in. Later this week they also begin spending time outside with the livestock, cat, chickens and the rest of our now very diverse pack. The next few weeks are going to be such a fun time! Please enjoy this video taken on their 3 week birthday, individual photos will be coming later in the week.
