Livestock Guardian Dogs
All of the dogs shown on this page are available for adoption through the Texas Great Pyrenees Rescue.
Name: Squirt LGD
Squirt really fits his name. He is a smaller boy and the only survivor of his litter. He is very skittish but follows his fosters around on chores. Squirt is a new intake and learning to trust his fosters slowly. He does approach the whole family for petting, including a 12 year old. We will update his status as we learn more. He is friendly with other dogs of all sizes and is submissive to correction from older dogs. He has been in the pasture is whole life with goats. Questionable around poultry because he will chase, but stops when corrected. Not currently kept with fowl but we will continue his training. Squirt is super playful and puppy-like. He needs to settle down a little more, but it is already clear he will be great candidate for a farm that already has experienced LGDs to lead the way. He shows good guardian behaviors with the goats and sticks with them even when other dogs are out playing. He follows his herd and lays near them as they move about the property. Squirt still needs routine vetting and a neuter and will be brought in as soon as he settles enough to be transported to the vet. read more
Name: Warden (HFD)
Born in June, 2017, Warden was living with some goats and doing his job - barking away predators! Unfortunately, there were neighbors nearby and Warden ended up looking for new job. He is more social with people than he is interested in his herd, so we think he will do best as a Hobby Farm Dog. He is very sweet and gets along well with other dogs. He shows interest in coming inside, so if you would like a dog that enjoys an afternoon siesta in the A/C and follows you on your chores, this is your guy! read more
