Pollux – Maremma Guard Dog


Pollux, a Maremma, protects the ewes and lambs

Pollux, protecting the flock

Pollux is our only Maremma Guardian Dog. The breed originates in Italy. They are very similar to our Akabash dogs, but have longer coats. Pollux is our elder statesman, and is largely retired, though he stays with the flock and the team of dogs, protecting the sheep. They provide peace and safety for our pasture-raised lambs. Lamb produced naturally has high quality and flavour. Ours is available seasonally.
