I'll add another recommendation for the Pyr.

We use them and Anatolian Shepherds for livestock guardians. They're fierce when necessary and calm otherwise. They're big, but don't eat all that much.

I like any of the mountain herd protecting type dogs . Great Pyrenees or Marrema sheepdog or Dobermans or my favorite type of dog a ' side of the road dog ' . I have 6 side-of-the-road dogs . They are very good at paying attention to what is going on around my home and letting me know ' something is up ' . Adopt a stray Today !

My dad had 2 . They got to be kept in a fenced yard or on a leash cause when they see something they want they go for it otherwise they are very calm well behaved dogs . And there are several organizations that specialize in adopting out Greyhounds that are no longer right or needed for racing at the track .

I've got them up and down my BOL dirt road w various families including a bear hunt guide. I call them the hounds of doom LOL.

Between them and the crunching from road gravel ain't no-one even walking on that road without all hell breaking loose.

Poor mans ground sensor perimeter alert system lol

This pic was when he was a pup.

He almost looks like my Roxy, I lost her a year ago.

Please, if you have a dog, they are part of your house pack. Please don't leave them tied up/chained up/or just locked up in a backyard endlessly or at night (when they want to sleep with the pack).

Most of us are tired of hearing the out of control dog and the dog that is feeling "ejected" from the pack all damn night long.

Just saying. Dog ownership is a responsibility that most folks are not up to the task.

It is not normal for a dog to bark all day long or all night long. Or even all that often unless playing with it's pack mates.

I'd pick one or more of them as well. Makes it even easier that I own a small dog that looks a lot like one! Not a miniature pincher, a rat terrier.

Because of their price tag we replaced the female with an Anatolian shepard, another good dog and quite protective that we're quite happy with, more athletic than the boerboel but doesn't carry the same look of intimidation.. I'm quite fond of the mastiff / Molossor group..

2nd pick behind the doberman.
Barb Valerio will have puppies available. She is a bit of an interesting person. Besides that, the dogs she has are awesome. I don't think she breeds them for money but sells them on occasion. Google her name.

You can Judge a man by how he treats his animals.

You're not wrong. But they are too high strung for my taste. Of course, that's what makes them aware and excitable enough to alert.

Good to see you posting again, Trollo. Where you been, Mang?

I have two black dark sable DDR line German shepherds. The most intense driven dogs I've ever been around. Very intelligent, highly trainable, one of the most athletic big dogs I've been around. My youngest female literally breaks out of everything that is not solid walls. She shredded the 6 foot chain link dog kennel she was in. She jumps up and grabs the fence panel on the other one and opens the roof and pulls her self through the second kennel so now she stays inside. She can be turned on and off in an instant with key sounds and words.

My wife and I just bought a black and rust Doby that we'll pick up about 5 hours away in east Texas on the 25th of March. I've had and been around Dodies too, but have yet to see the sheer strength,whits, drive and muscle that a DDR shepherd has. These aren't the cookie cutter American shepherds you see lazing in the back yard, these are hardcore work dogs.

Hey OP, did you settle on a perro?
