This one below has won me over with his face.
I'm telling you, it is SO hard for me to let this one be a livestock guardian dog. I think he would be just fine right in our home guarding it. Just look at this face.....
I know, I know.....A 200 pound Antaolian Shepherd wouldn't be a practical pet for our home. We tried to have a "pet" LGD before. It didn't work out. It wasn't fair for her to get to go in and out of all of the pastures to mingle with our other LGDs. She literally teased them. She would climb over the gate and get in with them, just to show them it was "ok" to climb back out without getting in trouble. We had to send her to a home without any other LGD's so she could just be a pet.
I love this little gal too. I got to experience her first attempts to stand in the world. I tried to video it to share with everyone, but the wind was really blowing yesterday. It messed up the sounds terribly. Hopefully I'll get the chance again.
