Tobias (Toby) is an outstanding Great Pyrenees Dog. He is lovable, devoted, and has an outstanding pleasing personality. He has outstanding movement, a wonderful disposition and he will win your heart. He is so eager to please and just enjoys life. The more love he can share the happier he appears. View his pictures visiting the nursing home with his friend Jack.
Toby is our foundation dog. When Toby arrived at the farm, we knew he could live a double life. He was capable of guarding his flock but to also show his "stuff" in the ring. Toby loved the ring and the excitement of traveling. He earned half his AKC Championship points as a puppy; three majors with the final win in July 2011. He has retired from the show ring and is living the good life.
Toby's health tests were completed in January 2012. He passed the tests and obtained his "Chic" certificate.
Toby is majestic and the love of our lives.

Dogs, puppies or upcoming litters
We proudly register our Great Pyrenees with The American kennel Club of America. We have limited numbers of puppies each year. We strive to produce the very best Great Pyrenees dogs and puppies that we can. This is our Great Pyrenees page. We live in the foothills of North Carolina. We have High Quality Great Pyrenees in NC. When we first started looking for our Great Pyrenees dogs we looked to find someone that bred LGDs. We believe in confirmation, health, temperament and the ability to guard. We are committed to only raising the best dogs that we can. We want high quality Great Pyrenees Puppies. We started with a Great Pyrenees Dog to sire the puppies. Then we needed a Great Pyrenees Bitch to have and to raise the Great Pyrenees Puppies. We follow the guide lines that the Great Pyrenees Standards outlines. We are members of the Great Pyrenees Club of America. We spend the time and money to make sure our Great Pyrenees dogs are high quality. Any Great Pyrenees dog that we own will have OFFA certified numbers. All Great Pyrenees puppies born here on our farm in North Carolina this includes working dogs to have xrays done. We do not breed puppy litter after puppy litter just to have puppies. We limit our puppy litters. We sell puppies. Our Great Pyrenees puppies go to forever homes. All of our great Pyrenees puppies are sold by contract. This protects the puppies and also allows us to make sure buyers know the commitment they are making. The Livestock Guard Dog breeders in our area. Many Great Pyrenees breeders had all of the qualifications but one! That was why we then turned to show quality great Pyrenees breeders to find dogs that came from xrayed hips. Do Show dogs bred to other Show dogs always produce Show dogs? The answer is absolutely not. Responsible ownership if breeding a quality litter is to follow the puppies to see if you are moving in the right direction. With each litter a responsible Great Pyrenees breeder should be trying to produce the best puppies possible. We believe that it is possible to have a show dog be a great guard dog or at great guard dog should be able to show. We are striving to produce those kinds of dogs. If a Great Pyrenees dog does not have confirmation they can still be good LGDS but should never be used in a breeding plan. If a puppy has very good confirmation, health but not the temperament for guarding then it needs to be placed in only a show home or companion home. It must be a win/win for everyone, but most importantly for the puppy.
