No, he is not a Great Pyranees but no other breed fit him closely on this site for the options. The truth is, Pasha is an Armenian Gampr. He is a huge 130 ish lbs and like many GDs, a one family dog and aloof with new people. We are told he is around 2 years old. He is a special boy needing the right fit in a home. Lots of fenced acreage to guard and protect (minimum 1 acre lot). He was brought to rescue when his guardian killed herself tragically. Family members he had never met were afraid to enter the barn he was living in and threw dog food over the door. They contacted the vet to have him tranquilized and euthanized. That's when we were called by the owner's friend. He will growl if approached without knowing you. That's sort of what his breed is meant to do...guard. He just needs a caretaker that understands his rare breed, energy levels, and that he loves to check out the property lines and make sure all is well and as it should be. He knows sit and shake and down. He loves to go for leashed walks but is very strong of course. He also LOVES cuddles. He was raw fed by his owner and we are continuing that mixed with kibble. Raw feeding is the best for a dog's health anyway when done correctly. Pasha dog tested beautifully with other medium to large dogs. We have not small dog tested (under 20 lbs). Please contact us for more information. We are particular on the home he goes to. He was shock collar trained incorrectly and now fears beeping noises. He is by no means a bad dog, he is a sweet boy when he meets you and knows you and he deserves a life doing the job he was meant to do, protecting his people and property. He is not a livestock guardian dog as he has killed goats in the past we are told from friends of the family.
