Meet Our Maremmas
We cannot say enough about how much we love these dogs. We started with Ellie, Murphy arrived shortly after and we fell instantly in love with this breed.
With a heavier predator load and small animals, we knew we needed to have LDG's with our livestock and are thrilled with how they are all maturing and coming into their own.
Our maremmas are all registered with the Maremma Sheepdog Club of America.
Untinen Ellie Jo
Ellie is allll business. She takes her job very seriously and doesn't like anyone near her sheep that she doesn't know, which is exactly what we want. She's also the sweetest girl when she trusts you and is always ready and waiting at the gate for some loving.
Ellie's maternal grandsire and granddam were Italian imports and her sire was imported from Finland.
She is with our ewes and resides in the main sheep barn.
Whispering Aspen Ridge's Murphy Renzo
Murphy is a total sweetheart. He's fierce when he needs to be, but most of the time he just wants to be in the middle of his goats baking in the sun. Murphy runs with the does and their kids and will soon have access with jump gates to the buck yard
Murphy and Ellie's dams are full sisters, which makes his grandsire and granddam the same Italian imports. His sire was imported from Peavine Hollow Farms in Virginia.
He resides in the main barn.
Mountain Mist Nash
Nash is just as cute as you would think he is from his photos. He is always ready for a cuddle and is so eager to learn new things. He's taken great interest in the animals here since he arrived and will be moving from area to area while he trains. Eventually, he will be Ellie's working partner.
