Reminds me of my Taz (R.I.P)

by Michelle
(Muskogee, OK US)

My first Pyr was a loving friendly dog who couldn't wait to meet and visit with people, but while he was a big lovable goof ball that could change in seconds if he thought my daughters were in any kind of danger. When out walking if he heard the girls make any sound of distress he would immediately be where he could see and assess the threat.

We had neighbors that lived (other side of 3 acres) down from us that had dogs they would allow to run freely. One was highly aggressive and would charge the girls and our other animals nipping, growling and barking at them on our property. Taz would rush to their side and put himself between the girls and the other dog. He never attacked and would calm as soon as he was between them, but he would make his point and would stay in guard mode until the other dog either backed off or it's family retrieved it.

We also had coyotes in the area and he would go out for his nightly walk and announce his presence at every corner of the property and if the coyotes where making noise or close by, they wouldn't be for long (rarely took more than his first I'm out announcement, lol).

I lost him last year and while I now have another one (didn't expect it but fell in love) I will always miss my baby. Now I have another Pyr that has wormed his way into my heart and while not as social of people as Taz, he is a total guardian of the family and will protect even my husband, which most of our dogs let daddy do the protecting :) but not Little Man, if he thinks there is a threat he is right there telling it to back off and has been that way since he was 3 months old when I got him.

He's still young so we are working on the control but his instincts are total guardian and within his family and friends he is a big lovable baby who is spoiled rotten.
