Maremma Sheepdogs are a Livestock Guardian Dog breed that originated in Italy. Similar in appearance to the Great Pyrenees but respectful of fences and not prone to wandering, they are content to stay close to their stock and are very well suited to both small farms and big ranches. Our wonderful Maremmas protect our goats, horses, poultry and barn kitties from predators, big and small, as well as from human intruders, but yet they are very affectionate with family and friends and love children. We adore our fluffy polar bear dogs and couldn’t do without them!
