Guess the Breed #10

I found this gorgeous picture and thought I HAD to share! Isn't he lovely?




Here are your hints ... He is purebred. This is posted from a breeder's website (I will link the picture to the site after you've all had the opportunity to guess the breed). The dogs owned by this breeder have won Best Of Breed in some shows (no, I'm not telling you which shows - that would be cheating!).




Can you guess the breed? I'm hoping this one makes you think!




Ready? Set? GO!




Please remember the golden rules ...




1. No bashing other peoples' opinions. (Friendly banter only.)
2. Post your opinion!
3. Have fun!

It can't be a Pyree, that would be too easy... Akbash dog...

It's either a Great Pyrenees, or a ??

maybe that dang Maremma will win me the big guess prize.

I am going to have to guess Kuvasz.

ChrisJ said...

I'll go with GoLightly and say it's a Maremma.

How about a Polish Tatra Sheepdog?

My first thought was Maremma as well.

Ohhhh.
My first thought was maremara(SP??) as we had two of them with our sheep, but then I looked again and it could also be Great pyrenese...
This is kinda tough!

He is a Maremma Sheepdog. I have edited the post so the pic is linked.

GoLightly guessed right.

Did I give too many hints??

Viatecio said...

I didn't think you gave anything away...

It's funny how alike some of the livestock guarding breeds look...they have the same purpose and general job, but they all came from different areas that bred them to look different from each other! (Komondor coat vs Pyr coat, anyone?)
