We have a 27 acre horse farm north of Toronto in Mono. We found our Great Pyrenees dog at the Alliston Humane Society when he was 8 months old. His brother was also there, and we almost took both of them, but some dog trainers had said that it was better to take another dog that was not related. Bear guards the farm from coyotes and predators and watches the horses. We used to bring him in every night at 8 pm, but now that he is almost 3 he wants to stay outside 24/7. I didn't know much about this breed, but he is a very clever, loyal boy. At first he wasn't well socialized, but last year we had dozens of working guests stay here from around the world and that really helped convince him that people were ok. He can play with any visiting dog as well. Bear is a lovely rare breed of dog, unlike any dog we have ever had. He was meant to be here.

Thanks for sharing your story,Janet. Its
heartwarming to know you have rescued and your lovely boy has a perfect Pyr life with you on the farm. These dogs are happiest when they are treated with the respect they deserve and given a purpose. Bear will continue to surprise you as he matures. They are very intuitive, sensitive, caring and fearless guardians for life.
God bless. Enjoy life with Bear!!
