    We're working on developing Breed Pages for each livestock guardian dog (LGD) breed and we need your help.

    If you have a breed that you're passionate about and would like to develop a Breed Page please let us know.

    More information on the project can be found here: http://www.backyardherds.com/forum/viewtopic.php?id=13787

    A list of breeds can be found here: http://www.backyardherds.com/forum/viewtopic.php?pid=159900#p159900

    Please note that while we'd like the breed that you're making a page for to be one that you've owned it is in no way a requirement. If you want to help with the project and you don't currently have that breed you'll need to make sure that your page is free of copy write material and that all pictures come with permission of their owner.

    Contact a moderator for questions or to volunteer. (Send me a PM)

    Notice: Please do not post links to outside websites to this thread. If you do they will be deleted. We are looking for volunteers to build breed pages only, not outside links.

    We need your help obtaining pictures:

    It is very difficult for those of us making the breed pages to find pics to use for the pages that will not infringe copyrights.

    If you have pics of your own, or can get permission to use someone else's pics, please post them here.

    ALL breeds are needed. Male, Female and puppy.

    It would be best if there were no other animals in the pics, and no people in the pics please.

    I can help out with information on Caucasian Ovcharkas, have my own pictures of my dogs living-working-guarding farm animals.
    Let me know if this is still an active project.
    Thanks.

    I love it! We have a Great Pyrenees who adopted us and loves our little horses and goats. I thought she was a big lap dog wanna-be!

    @ylevitin This is still an active project if you are still looking to help out.

    @Southern by choice Pretty much all of them. Sorry somehow I completely missed that there were replies to this thread so long ago. Are you interested in helping out? We need to get this project back on track and it will be a lot easier on this new platform :)

    Ok, let me know what breeds you want to do and give me a link to their pages when you're done (or almost done)! Thanks Southern!

    Elevan, many of the breeds listed on the page aren't utilized as LGDs and haven't been for 100, 150 years.... would it be better to let you know those ones that are not being used in that capacity? I think sometimes people are looking for something "different" and get these breeds and then realize they are not at all guardians suited for livestock.
