Hello. I've kept a small herd of goats for two years. Eight months ago, I purchased a 5 month old Great Pyrenees and slowly introduced him to my herd. He has only been in with the goats full time a few months. He is and always has been the most gentle dog I've ever owned (and I've had many over 30 years). I had to bottle feed a baby pig which stayed in the house awhile and it slept on top of him. We also have a Rat Terrier dog, cat, chickens and the goats, all of which he is wonderful with. Two of our female goats just kidded about four weeks ago. We have been carefully supervising them and he was interested, would lick them, no problems at all. Yesterday, we found one of the four babies dead, and two others limping. We had been out working a few hours, my son, 12, was home though, and he said that he saw Brody (the Pyrenees) trying to play with the babies, jumping up, running around them. I can't imagine what else could've happened to these baby goats. Brody is pretty well trained and follows commands. Is he simply still too young, at a year old, and as gentle as he is and has been, to trust around babies? I haven't kept goats for years, nor am I a professional trainer, but I am responsible and have common sense. Perhaps I was naïve regarding his age and the danger he could pose to the little goats? Is there a more appropriate age to trust him?
