We occasionally offer trained, adult livestock guardians - ask us about availability!
Here at Pony Trail Farm, we utilize the talents of Great Pyrenees Livestock Guardian Dogs to protect our valuable herd of goats. Livestock Guardian dogs have a unique skill set that is inborn. Some are better than others at their job. Many show dog breeders label and sell their culls as livestock guardians, but neither the parents or the pups have ever seen livestock! We recommend that if you are looking for a guardian dog for farm or home, that you purchase one from working parents so that there is a history of the correct temperament for the job. Our Pyrs instinctively guard the herd, and have been with the goats from the time that they were puppies. We offer a health guarantee as well as a return policy on puppies. All puppies are given their first vaccinations and worming prior to sale, and will be microchipped.
"Charlie" was born and raised on Pony Trail Farm, son of Blossom and Pooh Bear. He inherited Pooh's loving disposition towards people, and is a faithful guardian. Charlie is the current sire to most of our litters. Charlie was Xrayed for OFA, and scored "EXCELLENT" on hips, "Normal" on shoulders and elbows. He still has some growing to do, but like the other dogs will be lean and muscular from activity. He is about 115 lbs.
Andorra came to our farm as a young puppy, and was raised here with our goats. She is a quiet, gentle dog, who represents the "stockier" style of Great Pyrenees. She had her OFA Xrays at two years of age, and is OFA "GOOD" on hips, "NORMAL" on shoulders and elbows.
She had her first litter of puppies in the Spring of 2017, all big, healthy, and beautiful.
Isabella also came to Pony Trail Farm as a puppy, and takes her job as a guardian very seriously. She enjoys walking with the goats out to pasture in the morning and escorting them back to the barn in the afternoon. Isabella is the "taller" style of Great Pyrenees, but still has beautiful Pyr characteristics, including a nice head. She also is sweet towards people. Isabella had her OFA Xrays done at two years of age, and is OFA "GOOD" on hips and "NORMAL" on shoulders and elbows. She is the biggest of our females at 100 lbs lean weight.
Annie is Isabella's sister (see above), but has tan markings instead of badger, making her look white as an adult dog. She is the same tall style, and has the same beautifully dark pigmentation around her eyes that make her eyes stand out. Annie also came to us as a puppy, works as a guardian dog and loves the baby goats, but also loves to see people. Annie is OFA "GOOD" on hips, "NORMAL" on shoulders and elbows. Just like the others, she stays lean from patrolling the pasture.

PRICE: $900 includes first shots and worming and AKC papers for FULL REGISTRATION with breeding and show rights, as well as microchip. It is our discretion as to which puppies qualify for full registration as they must meet breed standard in every respect, and have a temperament that we deem worthy to pass onto future generations. We reserve the right to assign pups based on their temperaments and conformation and the purpose for which they are sold (livestock guardians, family pet, breeding, show potential). SOLID WHITE pups meeting breed standard are sold with Full AKC Registration only, due to the high demand for this color and limited number. The FULL Registration pups are sold with a FULL HEALTH GUARANTEE which covers any illness within 3 days of purchase, genetic defect that inhibits normal function diagnosed within 1 year, and hip dysplasia diagnosed by 2 years of age (through OFA or PennHip evaluation). The warranty gives full purchase price back with return of pet or death due to genetic condition (with veterinary statement). Return transportation arrangements and costs are the sole responsibility of the buyer. Exception is loss during air travel which would be fully refunded including transportation.
Some pups will be available at $750 for LIMITED AKC REGISTRATION, for pets or livestock guardians, but no breeding or show rights. These pups have Limited Health Guarantee for exchange or money back guarantee with return of pup for: infectious disease incurred within 3 days of purchase, or congenital conditions that inhibit normal working activities (not cosmetic issues) diagnosed within 6 months (veterinary statement required). The pups chosen for Limited Registration will be just as healthy and vibrant and personable as the full registration pups, without the privileges of breeding or show.
PLUS Air Cargo fare for airline shipping, plus cost of crate (shipping estimate total $500-600 depending on puppy weight and crate size). Health certificate will be provided.
