This dog is located in Tennessee. Adoption Donation $150 in TN, $200 plus transportation fee for out of state adoptions.
Prince Falkor may be named for the mythical creature in The Never-Ending Story, but this 2.5-year-old, 80-lb. Great Pyrenees is very much a real dog. While Falkor was originally a livestock guardian, he has now learned the luxury of being a family member and living inside - he loves the couch! Sadly he was left in a field as a guardian at a young age and was never socialized with people and had some catching up to do. He is crate-trained, house-trained, microchipped, neutered, up to date on shots, negative for HW and parasites (on monthly preventatives). Falkor gets along with other dogs and cats, though he prefers not to share food or toys. Falkor likes to ride in the car. He requires a securely fenced yard to keep those Pyrenees wandering instincts at home. While he can still be skittish with strangers, Falkor clearly wants to play and be petted. Falkor is ready to go home with the right family. If you know and love the Pyrenees breed, please contact us to see if he would be a match!

THIS PET IS FOSTERED IN TENNESSEE! We do list and adopt our pets nationwide, so distance is not a problem in most areas. We have a variety of transportation options to bring your new family member to you. Typical transport cost to the northeast is $150, but may be less depending on your location (Due to interstate adoption regulations, we are not able to adopt to RI and MA residents.)
A.A.R.F. (All About Rescue and Fixin' Inc.) http://aarf-tn.com/ is a non-profit, 501(c)(3) no kill animal rescue organization located in the Upper Cumberland area of Tennessee.

Prior to adoption, all canines and felines are spayed or neutered, have received their age appropriate vaccinations, have been de-wormed for common parasites, and have received treatment for prevention of fleas and ticks. All canines over the age of 6 months have been tested for heartworm. All canines are put on heartworm prevention as soon as possible - this means dogs as soon as they are tested negative. Puppies are put on prevention immediately. All felines, regardless of age, have been tested for feline leukemia and FIV. Each animal receives a health check by a licensed veterinarian prior to adoption. Anything else found will be treated by our organization prior to adoption.
