Two dogs rescued!
We rescued two Maremmas (or are the Great Pyrs?) from the Tri-City Shelter on Monday. They were taken by an organization called "SPIN" to Noah's Ark Vet Hospital in McKinney on Tuesday to be spayed / neutered. Wednesday was spent recovering. Thursday, we brought them home!
The large male is named "Tysin" and the small female has been named "Jane". I don't know if those names will stick or not, but that's what they are for now. We are in the process of seeing if we can acclimate them to our alpacas, chickens and horses. So far, the only problem seems to be with our horses. Tysin has kept me awake the past two nights barking at the horses. :o(
Both of these dogs are precious. We are so hoping they work out to be Livestock Guardian dogs for our animals. Jane doesn't like our previous adoptee, "Nathan" either (adopted a year and a half ago from the Second Chance SPCA). She is letting him know that she is the alpha dog. We've got our work cut out for us!
If you get a chance, come on by and check out these sweet dogs. Hopefully, they will be out roaming the pasture making sure everything is safe!
