Maremma Litter Arrived April 2019
Maremma Sheepdogs are registered through the Maremma Sheepdog Club of America and the United Kennel Club (UKC) as a recognized breed of LIvestock Guardian Dog. They are profusely coated with thick white fur. Being smaller than many other livestock guardians, Maremmas are usually 25-29″ high and weigh 65-100 lbs. However, don’t let their smaller size fool you. They are a powerful adversary to any coyote, wolf, or other predator that may lurk around your livestock and home.
Maremmas were originally developed from the Abruzzeese and Maremmano breeds, in the Abruzzi region of the Apennine Mountains in Italy, in the 1950’s. Maremma Sheepdogs do not do as well alone on the range, nore are they the best choice as a family pet or companion dog, due to their large size and their need to roam. They are independent thinkers, which stems from their solitary lifestyle out on the range. Extremely loyal to it’s family, while also an excellent protector and guard make Maremmas an excellent choice for the farm or family with proper fencing and room to roam.
