Dixie our female mostly Great Pyrenees (she is also 1/4 English Shepherd):

Sire: Working Great Pyrenees on an Amish farm

Dam: Working 1/2 Great Pyr / 1/2 English Shepherd

Dixie has been a wonderful LGD.  She has faithfully watched her goats and taken care of newborn kids.  She keeps all predators at bay and I have even seen her watching eagles and hawks to make sure they didn't try anything.  She is extremely gentle with children and loves to be with them.  Dixie came to us as a puppy from an Amish farm where her Great Pyr father and half Pyr/half English Shepherd mother worked.

Taking her new duties more seriously now...

At one year old, taking great care of the newborn kids...

Dixie loves to be with 'her' goats!

Dixie loves her people too!
