Bobbie Joe is a full-blood Italian Maremma whose parents were imported from Italy. She is of Maremmanno and Abruzzese bloodline decent. While she does carry genetics from the rare Naso Roso bloodline, she does not exhibit the characteristic red nose. Bobbie Joe is our most dedicated guardian. She gets right down to business in the field and displays constant diligence at work. Her puppy phase was the shortest of any dog we’ve experienced. By 6-months old she was done with puppy play and ready to do her job. Bobbie is always on the front lines as the “lookout”. She is sharply in tune with her surroundings and quickly alerts to all perceived threats. Although she is relatively small in stature, she is by far the most confident and mature dog we’ve ever had, which qualifies her as our top breeder. While she may come across as aloof at times, this is the most reassuring sign of her dedication to her job.
