found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
I am already neutered, housetrained, purebred, in need of an experienced adopter, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.
Bear’s story is a familiar one - his first family had some personal challenges that made it difficult to care for a young Pyr who was just learning how to manage his BIG voice.
Since he has been fostered, we have learned that Bear is a house dog and is not suited to be a Livestock Guardian (LGD). Bear would most love to live in a home with a large fenced yard and spend his afternoons romping with his family and playing with his toys. He is a little too energetic for small children, but would be fine with teenagers. At his foster home, Bear gets along well with the other male Great Pyrenees house dog and the female Pyr LGD. He has been tested with cats and he has ignored the few he has met. Bear has excellent house manners - he is house trained and crate trained.
Well… he does still needs a few etiquette lessons in the kitchen as he has occasionally nabbed a snack or two from off the counter or the trash can. Training happened very quickly - the foster family has learned to close the trash can lid firmly, and to push any snacks a bit further back away from the edge.
Bear loves rides in the cars and outings of all kinds, although new situations may cause him some anxiety, and he has been progressing very well with how to politely meet strange dogs. For a Pyr, he is remarkably well-behaved on a leash and walks calmly at your side. He even knows sit and down and he is practicing stay.
Most of all, Bear is an exceptional snuggler and giver of hugs. Bear needs someone who understands Great Pyrenees, doesn’t mind dogs on the bed and couch, and can continue to help him learn that the world is not such a scary place.
