About We Three

Me and Nellie

Greeting loyal readers and fellow maremmas.    My name is Jasper and I am a wonderful, intelligent maremma dog living with my family in the sunny Mangamahu valley, just south of Wanganui, New Zealand. I was born on the 1st December 2009 and I have been with my family since I was a little puppy.  My mummy says she wanted a Yorkshire terrior and what did she get but a great white furry lump.  That is not nice thing to say about ME!!!.  I have a friend called Nellie and she is a beautiful maremma just like ME.  Me and Nellie are good dogs but sometimes we do naughty things. Since April 2016, We have been joined here at Chez Jasper by a new friend.  His name is Itai and he is eight years old.  Itai is a friendly boy and is settling in well.  Love Jasper, Nellie and Itai, the three bestest maremmas in all the land.

Me, the most handsomest maremma in all the land.

Nellie, looking her adorable self.

    Greetings from Canada. I had to look up where Mangamahu valley is. Lucky you, New Zealand sounds amazing. I imagine you have a brilliant life of sheep and sunshine. I had a dog named Jasper for many years and so that name is very dear to me too.

    Hi there! I’m from just outside the Vancouver area in BC, Canada. I adore the Maremma Sheepdog!! My father was from Italy and had one back home in Abruzzo. I currently own an American Staffordshire Pit Bull, which came with my fiancé. He is a challenge, but I have heard Cesar Millan say, “We are given the dog that we need, not necessarily the dog that we want.” So for now I will admire your pups until I can one day have my own. Ciao!

    • Hi. Thank you for your kind comments. Daddy’s mummy was from Italy. She met daddy’s daddy in Italy during the war and came to New Zealand in 1946. While, she did not have any maremmas, that daddy knows of, daddy always wanted an Italian dog, so they got Me. Mummy says be patient with your own doggy. She says it took a lot of time and effort to get Me and Nellie even to work out what “sit” means. She says don’t even get her started on the many meanings of the word “come” to a mareamms, We could be here all night. Love Nellie and Jasper

    Great blog and beautiful dogs! I’ll be following it now that I’ve found it.
    If you like stories about dogs, you may want to stop by http://maijaharrington.com, my new blog, where I’m posting chapters from my book-in-progress, “Funny Tails: Adventures & Misadventures in Living with Pugs.” It’s a humorous look at life with our 3 pugs + various foster pugs from Pug Rescue of NC. Readers say the book is pretty funny.
    Best wishes,
    Maija (pronounced my-uh)

    Hi there, I’ve just stumbled across your fantastic blog!! Also noticed that you live around Wanganui, I live in the manawatu. I’ve been looking for a maremma for months and can’t seem to find a local breeder. Do you breed them or where did you get your special fur babies from?
