Shelby's Story...
Meet this pretty girl named Shelby, a 2-year-old, believed to be a mixture of Great Pyrenees and Anatolian Shepherd. She is current on her vaccinations and has been microchipped and spayed.

She is loved by her foster family but needs one of her own, please read what her foster mom says about this wonderful girl.

She enjoys being brushed, hopping (springing!) like a rabbit and running, as well as being hugged. She does well with other dogs, and children, (although caution would be needed around little ones since she jumps and runs and may unintentionally knock them over in her excitement, but she's not aggressive.)

She is not a huge fan of baths or nail trims, but with patience, she tolerates them. When it comes to a haircut, she will usually lay down and take a snooze!

Shelby is housebroken, and she'll let you know she needs to go potty by either woofing at you or going to the back door and moving the blinds. When outside, we put her on a long run to ensure her safety and keep her from trying to dig out. (She does very well, and she'll even wait for you to put the run on her before she'll go outside.) Shelby is also crate trained. She likes to sleep in her crate at night, and when no one is home, and she'll even go in on her own when she senses it's time.

Car rides are always welcome, as are long walks and lots of hugs kisses. (Shelby doesn't give kisses, but she enjoys receiving them!) Don't let her size fool you! Being 80 lbs is no obstacle to her! She will gladly climb into your lap to give hugs and take a nap, (as long as you're ok with that.)

Shelby will sit, lay down, and shake. She's also learning not to "paw" for attention. She's an eager and quick learner! Shelby is also a great watch girl, and she will alert you when someone or something is nearby by barking. (She has a deep bark and sounds scary, but we call her the "Gentle Giant.")

Shelby is a sweet, funny, playful and happy girl who loves being around people and other dogs!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Shelby, a West Hartford Great Pyrenees/Anatolian Shepherd puppy was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Great Pyrenees/Anatolian Shepherd for sale in West Hartford, or seeking a Great Pyrenees/Anatolian Shepherd puppy from a breeder in West Hartford.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in West Hartford 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 West Hartford 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/Anatolian Shepherd breeders who help with Great Pyrenees/Anatolian Shepherd rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in West Hartford paves the way for another one to be saved.
