The name Popeye likely puts in mind large strong muscles, and while it does describe this big strong puppy, Popeye is sweet as candy and has a heart of gold! Popeye came to us from Louisiana. He was found wandering in a pasture with an eye injury. Unfortunately, we were not able to save the one eye, but this hasn't slowed him down at all. In his very short life, Popeye has been through so much and finally enjoying what it means to be a 'puppy'. Popeye is an incredibly sweet boy who loves to play with everyone and he loved his belly rubs! He is dog and cat friendly; however he hasn't been around children yet. He likes to play with stuffed toys and do typical puppy things like untying shoelaces and giving lots of puppy kisses. Popeye is currently working on his leash training, crate training and he is almost potty trained. While he is currently being trained and can sit on command, occasionally his puppy exuberance and the renowned PyrPaw still gets the best of him with a jump for joy. He would do best in a home with another large dog to be his guide and with a family that will give lots of affection! Popeye is growing fast, microchipped, and ready to start a bright future. There is a lot for a puppy to learn so he will need to find a home where someone is very available to him in these early days. Like all small puppies, he will need someone who can be home with him a lot and provide him with love, patience and boundaries to help him become a loyal companion. This cute little fella is not going to be little for long. Now is the best time to jump in and continue mentoring him. It is going to be so fun watching him fill out and fit into those big paws.
