Guardian of home/defender of the family/eater of monsters.


(uk)

We have a 5 yr old pyr mix, she looks like a 3/4 sized white Pyr. Bigger built and taller than a retriever. We've had a few incidents, one where someone broke into our garden while our children where playing outside, one where she killed a fox that had killed one of our three guinea pigs that were grazing in their run on the lawn that she had taken to guarding.

She's even teamed up with our half blind/no tailed cat and taken on a couple of huskies that briefly came at me. Cat being surprisingly ninja like.

And another when I was alone in the house with the children and someone tried to break into the house, she hung on to a trouser leg as the perpetrator tried to escape over a 7 ft wall!

Yeah she barks like an eejit outside, yeah she insists on walking a muddy perimeter before she'll even have a wee, and the dog hair!!!!. But if there's any fear of monsters, my kids will call Diz in there rooms to get it. And when she's not fast asleep in the middle of the hallway/kitchen door the gorgeous, calm, patient dog I have ever had the privilege to own.

She thrives in the company of HER children and loves any other kids especially if they have biscuits.

She even trained 2 of my children to walk!
I wish we could get her past her skittishness of meeting new people, we have to give her time to assess every new person without their interaction until shes ready. Once met, their remembered and greeted like an old friend from that point on!?!?

Funny dog, we are so in love with her.

Great Pyr, great guardian!
by: Marianne

Please don't find her reticence to be a fault. It's good! It's part of the Pyr's guarding instinct. She's just doing what she should. If the newcomer was not trustworthy, she would have had a chance to assess the person.

Just enjoy her and thank heaven for her internal programming!

Cheers!

This story made me cry. Such beautiful dogs! Inside and out! Reminds me of our Maui and how unhappy she is about new people and things :)
