Max the farm dog has had a reprieve. His owners simply could not part with him so he is staying on the Farm. Nice goin' Max!!

Max is a four-year old Pyr who lives on a farm with sheep. We are not certain if he has failed at his work or that he needs renewed direction for his work. We think the latter.

We think that he needs a friendly human who will work with him, show him how to befriend his sheep charges, receive approbation when he does things right and firm redirection when he doesn’t. Max needs to spend some time in a pen adjacent to his sheep, go into the sheep pen on a leash with his human, graduate to spending time with the sheep under supervision and slowly to relearn proper guarding techniques over a period of a month or two. He needs to relearn that lambs are not his personal toys to be chased and played with.

He has been living with a Maremma and a Border Collie, both females, who have been controlling him and pushing him away from the food and water. He, in turn, has started to do this with the sheep. He has become protective of food and water and whatever he considers his property.

We think that with proper care, training, supervision and loving human interaction Max would become a great farm protector again. The investment in training time would bring many dividends.

Max has never been in the house and has lived outside and in the barn most of his life. He suffered from several intestinal parasites when they acquired him at 4 months and they worked hard at getting him completely healthy. It seems that he would respond well to human companionship.

Max will be neutered, up to date vaccines, vet checked and micro-chipped.
