Breed  Character Summary

The Maremma Sheepdog takes its name from the varied terrain region of Italy where it first originated as a flock guardian

The Maremma has a very strong guarding instinct and in the absence of livestock, will defend its master, family and home with an equal diligence

This is a breed that when called upon is required to show tremendous courage in the face of predatory wolf packs and even bears but can be just as reliably expected to show a wonderfully gentle natured temperament with its owners children.
