These Great Pyrenees Mountain Dogs protect sheep ranches from predators like the Puma or the Fox.
They are raised with the sheep from birth and live amongst them.
Working with these dogs abolishes the need to shoot and kill predators like the extremely endangered Patagonian Puma, of which it is estimated only 50 remain in the surrounding region.
Here is a picture of Nieve and her pups, who look after the ranch of 1000 sheep left in the Chacabuco Valley.
She is very protective and hates people wearing hats..I didn’t know this and almost got torn to shreds… But she’s lovely otherwise.
