She let me see them from a distance. I counted at least 4, possibly 5. Most likely she has closer to 7 as usual.
MARK YOUR CALENDARS FOLKS!! The earliest pick up date for this litter is January 11th 2018.
I will begin Taking deposits after I’ve been able to sex them. I won’t disturb momma and babies until they are 2 weeks old. 11/25/17 is the earliest date to determine sexes and I will begin worming them on the same day.
GREAT PYRENEES LIVESTOCK GUARD DOG PUPS!!! Taking deposits and trade considerations for litter due….. Momma came out of heat 3 days ago. Mark your calendars for the expected date for new pups to be born!
These pups when at the appropriate age, will protect your livestock from predation including coyotes, fox, other dogs, cats, snakes, raccoon, etc etc. They discourage thieves and trespassers on your property. Guard children and provide years of companionship for the sick, handicapped and elderly.
They require a 6′ fence and THEY REQUIRE A JOB TO DO EVERYDAY. They do not make good pets to sit in the house all day and go for jogs at the park with you. Apartment and suburban dwellers please find a different breed, PYRES WILL NOT WORK FOR YOU.
New owner consultation provided free before purchase of pup. New owner training also available.
Pups will be sold for $500 cash, each at 8 weeks old. Each month I keep them longer, the price goes up as does their level of training and ability. $100 deposit holds your pup. I do worm meticulously but any and all shots for the pup will need to be handled by you and your vet.
All of us at Oasis Homestead are eagerly awaiting their arrival…..
Located in Senatobia/Coldwater MS area. I will travel up to 2 hours one way for appropriate trade deal.
Tour previous posts on my page for pictures, videos, stories and customer reviews.
I accept some dairy nanny goat trades (must be dehorned, not more the 25% meat breed mixed in, already bred and/or currently giving milk), beef calves, a Jersey heifer (must be dehorned, tame to hand milking, gentle, obedient and 4 fully usable quarters with health papers) and also would consider bird trades:
I will accept laying age hens of any breed but I only value them at $10 each unless they are pure bred buff orpingtons – which would be $15 each. I will accept Muscovy ducks, guinea fowl (must be at least 1 mated pair) or Toulouse geese (must be at least 1 mated pair).
Not ready to take sheep or pigs yet.
NO HORSES NO RABBITS NO CATS NO DONKEYS NO MULES NO DOGS
If the trade animal won’t fit in the back of my pick up truck bed, you will need to deliver.
When does training begin for our LGD’s at Oasis Homestead?
Why it starts the moment momma and I have a little “conversation” about moving her pups to the training pens at 10 weeks of age. It is very important to me that momma dog and I keep a trustworthy relationship. I would never move her pups without her involvement and consent.
I begin with a bi-weekly visit to her den after their 3rd day in this world, sitting on the ground just a few feet from the curious pups. I always call momma to come with me for our visits. I never sneak up to her den without her permission first. This helps to build security and trust between all parties.
Gradually momma nudges her pups towards me in a way they understand says: “go see her, it’s safe.” Mostly it’s a lot of sniffing and curiosity but very little hands on contact after the pups eyes are open. The less I handle them, the more naturally leery they will be of strangers. This makes better guard dogs for your livestock, your family and your property.
Of course over time, the pups learn to trust those they are regularly in contact with. The members of your family should be feeding and attending to them often, to ensure a close bonding. Eventually, these pups will be bounding towards me every single feeding, anxiously awaiting their vittles!
At 10 weeks of age the first thing I want to establish with these babies is a mutual trust and respect. Something I count on their mother to help secure. The second thing I want to start instilling in them is a respect for fencing, pens and gates.
To accomplish the second part, it is necessary to move the pups from an open setting to a confined one. Since momma can safely wean them at this age, her pups will be removed from her and she will get twice daily visits with them for the next couple months. The pups along with watchful momma are carefully and lovingly moved into a special pen inside the animal barnyard area.
This pen is restricted to use only for the pups and visits from momma twice daily, as well as myself. The pen has both an outside area of at least 10’x 16′, an outside dog house and a stall inside the barn of at least 5’x10′. They will have access to both the inside and outside sections at all times.
The entire pen is built using concreted 4×4’s, 3-5 horizontal 2×4’s on each 8′ section that is holding up 2″x4″ vertically spaced goat wire fencing. The wire fencing is connected to the horizontal 2×4’s using 2″ or longer steeples spaced every 12 inches on every board.
While in this pen the pups will learn to respect a stationary fence. They will be taught not to climb it or dig out under it. They will be taught how gates work and to move swiftly out of the way as they open.
They will begin to learn the sights and sounds of the barnyard. What animals they will be working with and be able to watch the adults through the pen fencing while they perform the daily tasks of guarding the Homestead.
I will begin interacting with the pups inside this pen. At first simply at feeding times, then they will learn the call to come eat and how to keep out from under my feet while I work to clean their pen. Later, they will learn simple grooming and health care steps and commands.
The pups will remain inside this pen until they are roughly 3-4 months old. At which time we begin introducing them to the farm animals gradually.
Oh my goodness! So much excitement on the homestead lately. 2 more of my babies have found their forever homes today. I feel very confident about their placement today. Once again, I couldn’t hold back the tears as they drove away.
The pair will be going to their new home and a very important career of guarding goats, chickens, people and who knows what else! The oldest one displayed an immediate affection for the new owner. I was surprised and very happy to see this bonding taking place from day 1.
The last female pup will be joining her brother whom is already placed with his forever family tomorrow. I’m so happy to see them stay together in pairs. I hate to think of them as being lonely.
This leaves me just 1 last male pup, born 3/9/15 available. Contact me soon if interested!
4 pups have found new homes I still have 6 left…..
It’s a bittersweet moment for me watching my babies leave out the driveway. Everyone that’s taken my babies will give them amazing homes and I’m so happy to help in that process but it doesn’t stop me from tearing up a little bit.
Call me ASAP if you need a loving and dedicated furball guard dog at your home or farm!
We have several age groups. Some already trained and working, some midway through training and some to be born soon!
