    Roger that. Most of the ones we've been working with are high drive dogs for sure. And purebreds, mostly either GSD or Goldens. But there are a couple of outright mutts training with that team. The mutts haven't made the grade yet, we'll see.

    Roger on the Great Pyrenees, too. Never had one myself but my brother has had two so far and really loved them. Come to think of it, at least one of his was a rescue.

    I believe the dog in the book was a Lacy, but the dog in the Disney movie was not.
    Usually the Lacy is not such a big dog, but I guess there could be some larger ones about.

    Nicely done, barnetmill. Should end the speculation.

    You’re correct of course. I was referring to the book.
