We basically have had Great Pyrenees livestock dogs almost the whole time we have had goats except for the first two months. Our last Great Pyr we have is sick and aging and we have to think about what next. We tried adding a new LGD puppy last March and it did not work out. I have considered just not replacing her when the time comes but am afraid of what might happen to the goats. We don't breed anymore just have retired and pet goats left. How many of you don't have protection and have been fine? I don't think we have coyotes or anything. I think our biggest threat is loose dogs but we are double fenced. I alos have considered looking at Great Pyr rescue as they have a livestock guardian program.
