Angels's first litter

Angels's first litter - 8 pups, 6 girls and 2 boys. The runt was not that much smaller than the rest of the litter and the biggest pup was not that much larger than the rest of the pups. All the pups survived, they are all healthy, happy and now have their eyes open or partially open. They are walking around and sound like they are starting to bark.

I will start a photo gallery of this litter. It will be titled Angel's 1st litter. Guardian I is the sire of the litter, he was 100% Great Pyrenees. He has killed coyotes and I have seen him chase off other coyotes, bobcats and raccoon. He was excellent with the poultry and livestock he was around.  Sadly, he passed away right after siring this litter. I will post photos of him so you can see what he looked like. Angel is the dam to the litter and she has been a really good mother.She is a protective dog and excellent with children and other dogs. I have never seen the poultry laying on top of her, but I have seen them laying down beside her.  All her background except her grandfather were full blooded Great Pyrenees. Her grandfather on her mother's side was full blooded Anatolian. I want a really good Livestock Guard Dog and prefer the Great Pyrenees with a little Anatolian in them. I feel they make better Livestock Guard Dogs. The Anatolian is a short haired LGD that is very protective and not as friendly with people as the Great Pyrenees. With the hot summers we have, crosses of Great Pyrenees and Anatolians are common in the Oklahoma area. I also like the character, demeanor and attitude of the Great Pyrenees/Anatolian mix Livestock Guard Dogs. The new Guardian is 3 months old and I have videos of him walking around the chickens, he does not chase them n or act like they are around. But let one of the chickens get startled and start squawking and Angel and Guardian are right over there to see what is going on. I will not let the pups go until they are a full 8 weeks old. I want the pups to be around Angel, Guardian, the poultry and animals so they have training on how to react around the farm animals. I also want to see which pups are better protecting livestock and which ones might be better as family protectors. Generally, they will not start showing those traits until they are 5 weeks old and I want 3 weeks to observe them to make sure they go where they will be the most beneficial to the families that buy them. The pups will have their first shots, dewormed and I will pay to have them microchipped at the place I choose. I am keeping one of the females as it is not related to the new Guardian. The order of the picks come in the order the deposits are paid. Deposits are $100, non refundable. The 2 males are $300 and the 3 remaining females are $350.
