Our spring, 2017 litter is here, born on May 22!  The puppies are now ready for their forever homes!  Bryar (sired by Thor) delivered 7 females and 4 males, all healthy and adorable.  Puppies will be examined by our veterinarian, given their first set of shots, and dewormed bi-weekly begining at two weeks of age.  Puppies are well socialized with people and our livestock and chickens here on the farm.  You will receive a care package with your puppy which will included some essential items as well as a bag of the kibble they are eating here at the farm. Shipping can be arranged anywhere in the continental U.S. for an additional fee (we use a ground pet delivery service) or picked up here at the farm when they are ready to go to their forever homes. Deposits can be made via PayPal, cash, or money order.  Please click   here  to send us an email request for details about reserving a puppy.  You may also contact us by phone at 434-944-5958.  If you have already contacted us and discussed the details of making your deposit please follow this link to do so.   https://paypal.me/RowlandHillsFarm   Please do not make a deposit before contacting us about availability. We currently have three female puppies available.  
ABOUT THE BREED
​    Classified as a giant breed dog, the Great Pyrenees is a territorial guard, completely intolerant of predators, even other dogs (except for small dogs) that are not in their pack.  They are naturally nocturnal and barking, especially at night, is to be expected.  
    That being said, they are gentle giants! They are fantastic with their livestock, and also other small and/or fragile creatures.  Supervision, however, is necessary while they are young as it normally takes them up to a year and a half or so to mature into a livestock guardian.  Think of it like a toddler handling an infant.  Although they may not intend to hurt an infant, they are not yet mature enough to handle or play with them without proper supervision.
Great Pyrenees are protective, yet gentle.  They love and sometimes seem to crave attention, yet they are independent.  The best way to understand the vast difference in the character qualities of a Great Pyrenees dog is to have a conversation with the owner of a mature Great Pyrenees.  
    There are tons of information about the breed available online so if you are interested in learning more about the breed, I encourage you to research other sites online as well. 

SIRE: THOR
Thor is a very alert guardian.  He weighs 170 lbs which can make him very intimidating as he is large even by breed standards.  He is not only a guardian though, keeping watch over the livestock here on the farm, he is also a great companion, following us wherever we go here on the farm.  He has a very gentle nature but is very particular about who or what is allowed on the property, alerting us of visitors and predators alike.  Thor is our day shifter, doing the majority of the protecting during daylight hours.  He is very quick to move, however, if he suspects any threat at any time.  A change in the pitch of Bryar's bark alerts him that she wants backup and he pulls double shifts whenever it's necessary. 
DAM: BRYAR
Bryar has been an exceptional part of the guardian team here. She weighs about 100 lbs with a slightly slicker coat than Thor.  She is our more vocal guardian and more of a second shifter.  She moves throughout the entire property nightly barking to let predators know that she is on alert.  She became quite a bit more affectionate after her first litter, but remains an outstanding guardian.  Since she matured and joined Thor, we have not seen a coyote, raccoon, fox, skunk or other predator here on the property.  We still hear the coyotes in the distance but have had no issues with them attempting to explore our property.
