A Family farm
Although the Rehoboth Farms name is new to Virginia (as an actual farm), the 80 acre property it sits on has been with the same family for generations but abandoned. The property was once a tobacco farm, a pig farm, a small rabbit farm, a hunting ground when the farming operations stopped, and lastly a goat farm with a few chickens. The dogs came into the picture when the goats attracted predators.
Here you will find more information about us and the farm, including frequently asked questions. Please use the links below for more information.

Rehoboth Farms of NC
Rehoboth Farms of NC has sold AKC-Registered Great Pyrenees since 2007. Averaging around 52 puppy adoptions a year the owners decided to relocate their family and transfer their dog breeding business. They were well known in the Great Pyrenees breeding community and highly regarded in the business for a solid 13 years.
They have sold close to 600 puppies since the first litter. And have actually gone over that in the final adoptions leading up to letting the business go. Their puppies have been adopted in 34 states, including Alaska.
Their dogs were skittish from the move at first but have warmed up nicely to their new surroundings and family.
Rehoboth Farms of VA
The property Rehoboth Farms now sits on was once a tobacco farm, a pig farm, a small rabbit farm, and a hunting ground when the farming operations stopped. Since 2012, the owner of the property, Bill, couldn’t sit still for retirement and built a goat farm on the property. In order to protect the livestock from the coyotes, bobcats, and bears, some livestock guardian dogs were purchased.
It started with a four then grew from there. So now our focus is on the dogs. We still raise and care for goats, as well as a few small chickens
David, the former owner of Rehoboth Farms of NC, contacted us in late spring of 2020 asking us to take things over. We agreed and he helped us get started on the ins and outs of being dog breeders.
The Great Pyrenees
As late as 1874 the breed was not completely standardized in appearance, with two major subtypes recorded, the Western and the Eastern. They are related to several other large, white, European livestock guardian dogs (LGD), including the Maremma Sheepdog (Italy), the Kuvasz (Hungary), the Akbash (Turkey) and the Polish Tatra Sheepdog or Polski Owczarek Podhalański, and somewhat less closely to the Newfoundland and the St. Bernard. According to the Great Pyrenees Club of America, the Pyrenean Mountain Dog is naturally nocturnal and aggressive with any predators that may harm its flock. However, the breed can typically be trusted with small, young and helpless animals of any kind due to its natural guardian instinct.
