He was rescued from the SPCA via the Pound and now lives happily, albiet destructively, with our old Maremma, Nelson.
Ahhh!! Yes indeed!! I have seen one of them at a pecorino factory near Umbria!! This guy was very very old, but he was so sweet, and I bet he loved cheeses, too, considering where he lived!!
He was the only Pastore Abruzzese I have ever seen in my life, I believe it is quite a rare breed, I can't understand how he ended up in a pound, such a beautiful, sweet boy with such a lineage!! But I see it turned out for all the best, look what a wonderful home and family he has found!!
Dalai and Nelson, I love the names, too!!
Edited to add: The pic is resized so those who with smaller monitors can also see him fully immediately!!
