LIVESTOCK GUARD DOG
Predation of lambs by coyotes and stray dogs is always a concern for those of us with sheep. Chewy is a Great Pyrenees and his sole job is to protect the flock from any threat. He is ever vigilant at night and patrols his territory for any intruder, during the day he can be found sleeping close to the barn under a shade tree. He is not as bonded with sheep as some LGD’s are, he enjoys playing with the other dogs. He has the run of the place and will keep the raccoons away from the garden, the deer out of the alfalfa and many people in their cars.
