1. Tucker is a beautiful Grt Pyr about 9 months old. He has never been around an older Grt Pyr. He belongs to a neighbor who intends to shoot him if I don't take him. Seems Tucker has taken to wallowing around some of the smaller goats. Stressed out one who died. No bites, did not eat carcass, Just "loved" him to death...therein lies the problem. 2. I have a 2 y/o Grt Pyr who guards my small(6 and growing) goat herd. Â½ brother to #1. He is the most intellegent and guarding dog I have ever owned. I could tell stories...But that is for another day. Here is the plan...I'll get Tucker (#1) and put hin in the goat pen with Bat (#2) and keep him on a short leash for a week or so. So he can observe the older dog, get aquainted with the new herd, and generally settle down. After some time, I will let him loose but keep a very close eye on him to see if he has outgrown what I consider a "puppy" phase. If it continues it will render him completely useless. Thoughts comments and suggestions would be GREATLY appreciated! I really hate to lose the dog, but will put him down if necessary. I can't have a livestock killer on the place. Kinda like having a politician in charge of taxes.
