In Memory
Max
: Great Pyrenees X Anatolian Shepherd
2013-2022
“I love my Angora goats and never leave them. I’m slowly getting better with people, too.”
Max was a very good boy who never left his goats, even to his health’s detriment. Since his goats were not going to their watering station where his feeder was (due to recent rains), he didn’t eat and became weak. A disease he was overcoming came back strongly. He got a severe ear infection and was unable to walk well. After a week of antibiotics, Max stopped eating and the vet suggested it was time to put him down. Make sure to use parasite prevention products with your LGDs.
