BabeBera is a pretty girl! Just a baby, still.

We have new neighbors who brought with them 3 Pyr's. My young Dane (10 mos.) has met them a few times and is excited to have neighbors closer to his own size, albeit much fluffier. :)

Those GP's are beautiful dogs. I see them in the shelters even up here. I have the land but nothing for them to guard. I still think about it tho!

I know next to nothing about potbelly pigs but isn't that one way overweight? It looks like it's potbelly is about to drag the ground. How much does it weigh? It's got a cute face.

Nope, the vet said she was not overweight..since she is only fed once a day..unsweeten horse pellets...I do not have a clue what breed she is either since she came to us from a rescue pot belly piggy farm...lol

So, that is the way they are supposed to look? I did not realize they got that round. It looks almost uncomfortable. Does she get around well? I also did not know there was more than one kind or breed of pot belly pig. Wow. Live and learn, huh? LOL Pigs are supposed to be very smart. Does she do any tricks?

Oh so sorry for your loss. But what a wonderful life she had. I reread the whole thread first and am seeing her on her side for belly rubs!

My DDIL has a G P and he is as good a house dog as ever lived . She baby sits for several children and has for the last 15 years . Bandit is a good , unpaid sitter , watching over all the kids . They can be "workers" or pets . Anyone they live with is their "herd" to watch over . He bathes in the tub and is brushed about once a week . He doesn't leave hair over everything like you might think . They are good choices for family pets and make good house dogs , very clean .

I love your GP, so beautiful!! They're so loyal too. But I just love all the fur! They remind me of a teddy bear.

Do you know how she is with cats? I am interested in that breed to protect my cats and Taiwan street dogs (who are 25 to 45 pounds) from the coyote packs which live around my property. I am going to put up predator fencing but I know it wn't be foolproof so I wanted a second line of defense against intruding predators. I have read that the pyrs are good with small animals which I understand is not at all common with many livestock guardian breeds.

I had my BC to the vet yesterday and while we were in the room waiting for the vet, a GP was put on the scale by the door so we could see them well. It was a pup and weighed 94lbs! I heard the owner say she'd be glad when he filled out!! LOL

Most likely the pup was a bottomless pit when it came to feeding it.
The last time I as to the vet a couple of woman had 2 Mastiff puppies in for check ups. They were 16 weeks old and already 30 pounds. laying on the Women's laps they hung off both sides.
