“The Pastore Maremmano Abruzzese, the Maremma Sheepdog, originated in Italy where it has been used for centuries as a flock guardian for sheep and goats. It was first imported into the United States for this purpose in the 1970’s. Since then, the Maremma sheepdog has continued to increase in number and popularity. You’ll commonly hear them referred to as LGD’s (Livestock Guardian Dogs)”.
