Because we are in a rural location in the Ozark Foothills, we have coyotes, big cats, wild dogs, and other predators. I decided the Great Pyrenees would be the best choice for my farm. Zeus came from Bono, Arkansas and was 10 weeks old when he moved to the farm in 2018.
Hera is a Pryador (half Great Pyrenees/half Lab) and we wouldn't have her any other way! She is very protective, watchful, and a perfect mate for Zeus…in fact, she’s the Alpha and now weighs over 100 lbs!
She came from Mountain Home, Arkansas and was 8 weeks old when we got her. She stayed inside for several months, until one day, she decided she'd rather be outside. Soon after that, she and Zeus began to patrol together, guard the yard and everything living at Old Toney Farm--the goats, chickens, cats, and especially ME.
