The Wolf Killer

The Wolf Killer

A Great Pyrenees guards the flock near the ghost town of Bodie, California. As large and as powerful as a wolf, the Great Pyrenees (known as the Pyrenean Mountain Dog in Europe) were bred into existence thousands of years ago. These wonderful dogs - calm, dignified, friendly - are examples of genetic engineering by humans accomplished thousands of years ago.

Like the tones in this capture of this hard working Mountain dog. V

I agree, another great shot. I love these dogs.

Super shot, Dave! And I also like how you've followed up the wolf shot with this one, with the exact same pose! Is it war?? This guy looks ready for business while the wolf in the previous shot seems just curious. The cattle in the background really adds a real element of what this dog does for a living! Nice sepia too!
