Meet my Dogs
Males
  1. Yetozzie
    Yetozzie
    Yetozzie came from Colorado Mountain Dog Iris of Red Gate Farm in Illinois. His father is a purebred Great Pyrenees roughly 7 years old at time of breeding and very healthy. He has a very gentle disposition and is broad built like most Pyrenees. OFA Hip certified.
  2. Titan
    Titan
    Titan is the offspring of Tirian (Great Pyrenees & Anatolian Shepherd out of Ohio) and Arwen (Caspian & River, another outcross female Great Pyrenees). Both Tirian and Arwen were my dogs so Titan was born on my farm. He's big, beautiful, and has a great temperment. Owned by Travis Pfaltzgraff of Canon City. OFA Hip Certified.
Females
  1. Lilliandil
    Lilliandil
    Lilliandil "Lil" is out of Caspian (Great Pyrenees, Anatolian Shepherd) and Snow (Great Pyrenees, Hungarian Kuvasz). These are the original two that started the Colorado Mountain Dog program. She is also a full sister to Aravis (Housefull of Bessings). She is easy going, great with livestock and children, and very loving. OFA Hip and Eye certified.
  2. Pyxis
    Pyxis
    Pyxis is one of my younger females, a full sister to Lil, and parented by Caspian and Snow. I love her even temperament and conformation, Great with livestock, loves everyone, wonderfully soft fur, and tall like her father Caspian (she towers over Lil by almost two inches). OFA Hip Cerfified.
  3. Tayla
    Tayla
    Taylaminkadot "Tayla" is out of Regidor (Maremma) and Lil. She is very much like her mother in both looks and temperament, and our first service dog in the CMD program, Jack Daniels, is her full brother. The half Maremma in her has created a wonderfully loyal companion dog who stays right by my side when not guarding. OFA Hip, Shoulder, and Elbow Certified. Also Eye Certified.
  1. Sadie
    Sadie
    Sadie is the newest addition to our program. She is the daughter of Lilliandil (Lil) and Titan, and our tallest female. She is a gentle giant, but great protector of all our livestock.
Retired Breeders
  1. Tirian
    Tirian
    Tirian (3/4 Great Pyrenees, 1/4 Anatolian Shepherd out of Ohio) came into the CMD program in 2010 as our second stud (Caspian was the first - you can see him on Wendy Francisco's site). He is a beautiful large dog who sired most of the pups born in 2011 & 2012, and was one of my very best livestock guardians. He had an incredibly protective nature and actually carried a pair of newborn goats up to my porch in inclement weather to protect them. Unfortunately, he ran off with my female in heat and was neutered by a well meaning shelter in 2012. Tirian was rehomed during the Black Forest Fire evacuation with a friend where he still functions as a livestock guardian.
  2. Regidor
    Regidor
    Regidor "Reg" is a purebred Maremma that I introduced into our CMD program several years ago because of the Maremma's strong loyalty and keen intelligence. Maremmas are a working class as opposed to guardians, so they prefer to work along side their owner as opposed to independently. They also tend to be much more active than Great Pyrenees, so people who loved his pups were generally very active themselves who wanted their dog to accompany them in their activities as well as be a livestock guardian. Reg is now retired (living out his life on my farm), but Tayla, his daughter, is one of my favorite females whose puppies sell quickly.
  3. Arwen
    Arwen
    Arwen (out of River, a Great Pyrenees Wendy Francisco brought into the program, and Caspian) was a great family dog and livestock guardian but was a little more temperamental towards those outside the family, meaning she didn't always fit the "people-loving-dog" we strive for. Personality is a key factor in our breeding program so I retired her several years ago. She was a bit of a wanderer, probably because I got her from a Girl Scout Ranch that covered 500 acres where she could go where she wanted. She was fierce against predators and had been know to challenge a bear. I have many thrilled owners of her pups. Titan (another current stud) is her son.
