Maremma Sheepdogs are a Livestock Guardian Dog breed that originated in Italy. Similar in appearance to the Great Pyrenees but without as much of a tendency to wander and more content to stay close to the stock, we've found that they are very well suited to the small family farm. Our wonderful Maremmas protect our goats, horses, birds and barn kitties from predators, big and small, as well as from "bad guys". They love meeting visitors, especially children. We adore our fluffy polar bear dogs and could't do without them! We do plan to breed them within the year and will have puppies for sale.
