We have long utilized guardian dogs to keep our dog lot and home safe.
First off was Fly - a LOVELY Australian Shepherd; after Fly came Cricket, a rescue Great Pyr from SCARS in Athabasca. As Cricks aged, Bear came to join her and since her passing last winter, Bear has become our sole provider of Homeland Security.
He is HUGE (140 lbs or so), a big teddy bear of a guy and has the most amazing eyelashes I've ever seen on a dog!!
He has a VERY loyal and dedicated fan club!
Bear was bred by Louise Liebenberg of Grazerie's Sarplaninacs.
