We imported Pandora (Panda, for short) in December 2012 from Dario Capagrosso. Panda has turned out to be one of our most promising young foundation females. She has a calm, disciplined temperament and has an attractive eye appeal to boot. She has one of the nicest heads I have ever seen on a Maremma. Panda has produced two litters, sired by Stoneybrook’s Hoss. We have retained two of these pups in our breeding program, Terex and Daunte. Both of these young sires have appeared to mature at an extremely young age. Both were guarding full time by the age of 7 months and were completely trustworthy with young lambs as well as poultry. Panda has proven to pass on the low prey drive and strong bonding instinct to her offspring that is so essential to a successful livestock guardian.
