Nice story. Letting working dogs do what they are bred for. They have to be happier than ones cooped up in apartments with no yards to run free in. Best wishes to all.

I have had a couple of these great dogs, and calling them LOYAL is a gross understatement. My " BUBBA FAYE " came to school with me for her 1st 6 years of life, and was a reward for the school kids who needed something to brighten up their day(s).
Great article to get the word out about an incredible dog.

What a great story!!! Finally, something worth reading. My heart goes out to Pat, may she remain comfortable. Richard, keep on loving family, life and your four legged children. That is all that anyone would ask for.

No, he didn't. He said "pardon me" prior to mentioning that one of the criteria for purchasing the property was that it had privacy so he could do so if he wanted to.

The Great Pyrenees are a great dog for outdoor work. They're not easily agitated, can be stubborn and a little hard to train because they're fairly laid back, and often have a short attention span. In general, I'd say they'd be better in an outdoor setting, as we see here.

I'm glad to see someone rescuing these fine animals. They are an ancient breed, and deserving of some attention. My best wishes to the Lee family at this time.
