We're planning our first 2019 Litter!

​​
Our spring, 2019 litter is in planning, and we are expecting our pyr bundles around March 17, 2019! The dam of this springs litter will be Molly (more pictures of this beauty are coming soon) and the sire will be Kodiak Bear (around here, we just call him Koda).  This will be an unregistered litter. Puppies will be examined by our veterinarian, given their first set of shots, and dewormed bi-weekly begining at two weeks of age.  Our puppies are always well socialized with people, our Kiko and Nubian goats, as well as our chickens here on 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 (For worldwide deliveries please contact us directly to make arrangements).  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 will accept deposits on two females and two males until the litter has been born.  First deposit gets first choice (male or female), second deposit gets second choice, etc.  Once the puppies are born, we will continue taking deposits based on male/female availability.  If you contact us after the first four deposits have been made, but prior to their birth date, we will place you on our waiting list (first come, first served) and contact you when the puppies are born. Individual puppy photos will be posted shortly after the puppies are born so check back in with us soon!
ABOUT THE BREED
​    Classified as a giant breed dog, the Great Pyrenees is a territorial guardian, completely intolerant of predators, even other 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. But please feel free to contact us with any questions you may have in regards to the breed when making a decision as to whether this is the breed for you!

DAM: MOLLY
Molly is a very alert guardian. She weighs about 110 lbs, is lean, and is just slightly taller than the average female. She is our only unregistered girl, but still purebred, which gives us the opportunity to share her amazing bloodlines (her dam is AKC registered with champion bloodlines) with those not interested in purchasing a registered Pryrenees but would still find comfort in knowing that they have purchased a healthy puppy with outstanding bloodlines, and a great temperment.  She is not only an outstanding guardian, keeping watch over the kikos here on the farm, she is also our most loving companion.  She loves to hop into the Kubota or truck and take a ride with us around the farm!  She is very gentle but is very particular about who or what is allowed on the property, alerting us of visitors and predators and is an irreplacable part of the team! 
DAM: BRYAR
Bryar has been an exceptional part of the guardian team here. She is AKC registered, with champion bloodlines and show potential, weighs about 100 lbs and is lean and fast!  She is our most vocal guardian.  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, 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 or bother our livestock.
SIRE: KODIAK BEAR (KODA)
After nearly two years of searching for the new perfect pyrenees for our family and farm, we found Koda.  He joined us here in April of 2017 and quickly became a fierce guardian, letting nothing slip his attention.  At only 15 months old, he currently weighs about 140 lbs and is our tallest pyrenees. With the breeds true "bear head" and dripping coat he is breathtaking to behold.  He loves his job and the praise he receives for guarding his goat heard.  He, like the girls has a very gentle nature but is also very particular about who or what is allowed on the property, alerting us of visitors and predators alike.  He is AKC registered and his lineage includes champion blood lines.  Koda certainly has show potential himself, but is more valuable to us here at the farm protecting our livestock.
