Georgia dog who fended off coyotes nominated for Farm Dog of the Year

Casper the friendly dog who fended off a pack of coyotes and was badly injured in the process is up for Farm Dog of the Year.

After weeks of vet care and months recovering at home in Decatur, the 3 year old Great Pyranees is now fully healed and thriving.

“He’s doing superbly. His wounds are all healed, and he really loves being out with the animals and protecting them,” said John Weirville, Casper’s owner.

Casper is in the running to win Farm Dog of the Year by the American Farm Bureau Federation. A panel of judges with the Farm Bureau will choose the winner based on nomination materials submitted, as well as the dog’s helpfulness to the farmer and their family, playfulness, and obedience.

Here is the video of this beautiful creature, and the original story after his run-in with coyotes.
