|I don't know how the weather is in your area, we got 9 degrees and snow in CT. Providing a shelter from cold and wet with the food and water are a good way to keep the dog coming back.
Live traps are possible, but tricky. Some dogs are too smart to go into a tiny space, even if they are very hungry.
I got an email from a guy who has experience trapping the un-trappable dogs. He suggested gradually putting a coral together ( with smaller openings a dog can't squeeze through). He used a large space between 2 buildings, closing most of both ends so the dog never felt trapped. Get the dog used to your scent and food. On Trap day, completely close off the end of the coal the dog doesn't use much. Once he goes in, close the other end also. Then let the dog relax with food, water and shelter before trying to interact.
He was dealing with Kuvasz, which is similar to Great Pyrenees. Smart, herding, guarding breed as the GSD is.
I hope you can bring him in.
