Maximus Barkus is a gentle giant. He loves going for walks and playing with our cat, Jim. He is a pure bred Great Pyrenees, and they are bred to be working dogs. They are excellent guard dogs for goats and sheep. Our Max is very good at guarding our family and our home. He thinks we are his goats! He's always on the alert and will bark when he hears something he doesn't understand. He keeps us safe, and he has been a wonderful family pet!
