In Illinois. Free to good home. 3/4 Pyrenees, 1/4 Anatolian Shepherd. 9 month old female. She has been raised with 2 other seasoned lgds, sheep, goats, and cattle. Great with people, nice disposition, very sweet girl. Walks on leash decent. Downside is she needs very good fencing and/or hot wire. She does respect hot wire and will stay in cattle panel fencing. The reason I am selling her is because I have cut back on my sheep numbers and the two lgds I have are enough. My operation is also next to a road and she gets out of my fencing. The road borders my property on one side, and she thinks she needs to patrol there. She doesn't wander though, so would be great for an operation set back away from the road. She has helped the other lgds with getting rid of smaller varmints so far so is off to a good start. More pictures available on request.

I still have her. I haven't had any serious inquiries yet. I just want a good home for her.

What part of IL. do you live? I live in Northeast In.. I'm looking at driving distance because of bad back keeps me from driving long distance. How much do you want for her? My zip code is 46710. I have 4 goats that is why I'm asking so much.

I live about 30 miles south of the quad cities. It takes me about 3 hours to get to chicago area.
She is still available free to good home.

I really, really wish we were closer! I am looking hard for a lgd right now. I've never had an animal transported. Anybody know anything about that?

Very Interested. We are off the road about 400ft and live on 10 acres. Have goats, chickens and pigs. She would be with the goats probably. We couldn't let her roam the whole thing could we?

I would start out with keeping her with the goats. She is used to being with sheep and goats and gets along well with them. She has seen a few pigs, but isn't with them. I am not sure how she would do with chickens.

I think Bloomington is about two hours from me. I'm an hour and a half from Peoria.
