Tao's Info...

I am up to date with shots, good with kids, and good with dogs.

Tao's Story...
Tao is a Great Pyrenees-Mix who we estimate to be about 1 year old and currently weighs 55 lbs. His fur is long, double coated, and mostly white with tri-coloring around his face and ears. He came to us as a stray with his brother and both were likely on their own for some time. This guy is so full of energy but clearly eager to please his human companion. He hasn’t had much leash training or any other training for that matter. The Great Pyrenees was originally bred to be a livestock guard dog. This breed is also known to be confident, gentle (especially with children), and affectionate. While territorial and protective of its “flock” or family when necessary, its general demeanor is of composure and patience and loyalty. It is also attentive, quite fearless and loyal to its duties. Tao needs an owner who can spend time with him so he can develop into the true guardian he wants to be. It would be best to have a large fenced yard too so he can burn off all that energy. Tao is heartworm negative – Yea! He will need to be neutered before going to his forever home. Come down to the Shelter and meet this wonderful guy.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Tao, a San Andreas Great Pyrenees dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Great Pyrenees for sale in San Andreas, or seeking a Great Pyrenees dog from a breeder in San Andreas.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in San Andreas already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a San Andreas breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Great Pyrenees breeders who help with Great Pyrenees rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in San Andreas paves the way for another one to be saved.
