Facts about Allie

  • Breed: Great Pyrenees Mix
  • Color: White
  • Age: Young
  • Size: Large 61-100 lbs (28-45 kg)
  • Sex: Female
You know leading a party life ages you fast! It’s why all those Hollywood stars keep plastic surgeons sworn to secrecy! *Watches the drunk, pregnant kittens straggle in the door* Yes. I do know I’m being judgey. I’m cool with it. *Opens the folder and then closes it* I don’t need a folder today.
Allie. Allie-Gator! Come on in here! Yes, the residents are outside. Come on in here. *Hears Allie loping into the kitchen*
“Boom! Herrrreeee’s Allie! So I live with you and you’re going to interview me? Isn’t that cheating?”
Seriously? I have full conversations with dogs and put them in print and you’re going to say I’m cheating? Perhaps we’ve been watching too much of the election coverage. We need more Hallmark channel.
“Okay! Okay! Jeez! It was just a joke.”
Are you a Big Fluffy? (“Yes.”) Are you a foster dog? (“Yes.”) Then you have every right to be here too. So let’s cover the basics. You’re still a young’un, at 3 years young. You love your people. You love your treats and pets. You know your basics and we’re working on wait. (“Oh wait is ever so hard.”) I know baby girl, but you’re getting better at it. You learn very quickly.
“Thanks. I do try you know. So you got the good stuff; does that mean I get the bad?”
None of it’s bad Gator. It’s just what makes you, you. You have epilepsy and it’s controlled on meds. You’ve never had a seizure in the time you’ve been with me. We make sure you get your meds and you stay seizure free. That’s not even the difficult part.
“Yeah. The difficult part is that I channel Greta Garbo. Deep down in my soul, “I vant to be alone.”
*Chuckling* I wondered why you were watching AMC with me last night. No you’re not a dead movie star reincarnated in the body of a Golden/Pyr, although she’d be very lucky if she were. You just flat out can’t abide sharing your space with another dog. Old, young. Male. Female. You just want to be the queen of your domain. That’s cool; we can deal with that. We just need to know that going in when folks apply for your gorgeous self. You know you really do have a bit of Hollywood. You’re looks are cheerleader gorgeous. Your personality is silly, goofy, and fun.
“What can I say. I love my life. It’d be even better if you could remove the two Polar Bears though.”
Uh, they are residents and live here full time. Their benevolence enables me to foster you. It would serve you well to come down out of your tower Princess Allie-Gator and try to get along.
“Never! Can we go outside and chase a cat or a chicken? I love doing that!”
And that’s the other thing that’s a problem. Darling Allie-Gator, you have a high prey drive. You’re as gentle as the day is long. You’d do well with demitasse and teacups; you just have to be the only dog. So before we survey the back yard for law breaking chickens and cats, how about we ask those folks who are yearning for a stunning girl who is waiting to be your whole world to e-mail Jen at: Jen.Vargas@BigFluffyDogs.com.

“Don’t forget that I’m totally trustworthy in the house. I’m learning about toys and bones. That I’m cool being solo on work days and that I don’t chew what I’m not supposed to, that’s puppy stuff and I’m a queen!”


If you are interested in adopting this dog, please apply online, at http://www.bigfluffydogs.com/online-app.php. Our main website, www.bigfluffydogs.com has more information about us and the rescue process. NOTE TO EMAILERS FROM ADOPT-A-PET: WE DO NOT RESPOND TO EMAIL INQUIRIES WITHOUT AN APPLICATION. WE REGRET WE CANNOT RESPOND TO EVERY EMAIL, BUT UNLESS YOU FILL OUT AN APPLICATION, WE DO NOT KNOW YOU EXIST. All known information about an individual dog is provided in it's listing. We do our best to provide accurate information, but adopters must understand that each home is different and the dog may behave differently in a new home. Dogs are creatures of their environment and you help make the dog what it will be. Homes considering adopting a puppy must be prepared for:1.) Flexible schedules for potty training. Puppies can only "hold it" for one hour per month of age (ex. a 4 month old puppy can only go 4 hours without a potty break).2.) Crate training until the puppy is at least one year old, to prevent chewing on inappropriate things when you can't supervise.3.) Socialization: The more positive and varying experiences as a puppy the better, both in and out of your home.4.) Puppy behavior and life stages are equivalent to a human toddler. It takes at least a full year to have a calmer, well adjusted dog. Patience is required and when your dog's behavior is a positive experience for you and those around you, your patience will be rewarded tenfold, for years to come.Please do not consider adopting a puppy if you have not thoroughly thought through the pros and cons of having one. So many people end up returning them after 3-5 months because they didn't realize the amount of work involved in raising a puppy.Patience, appropriate toys, socialization, and obedience training are all musts. All are time consuming, and can be expensive.All Dogs Require:Supervision with children and obedience training. Adopters that want to have good dogs must be prepared to put the time and effort into training a dog. Any dog requires work and effort, but a well trained, well socialized dog is more than worth the effort put in to get them there.

About Big Fluffy Dog Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Big Fluffy Dog Rescue is a 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to helping giant breed mixed breed dogs in need. We value dogs of all breeds, but we specialize in what the name says: big, fluffy dogs. We have volunteers in several states in the South and New England who work to help homeless big fluffy dogs find a home to call their own. Big Fluffy Dog Rescue works to save Great Pyrenees, Saint Bernards, Newfoundlands and their mixes from euthanasia.

Come Meet Our Pets...

All of our dogs are in private foster homes. If a foster home is unavailable, our dogs are boarded. , Once your application to adopt is approved, we will have you go to the home or boarding facility to meet your dog.

Our Adoption Process...

Your first step to adopting with Big Fluffy Dog Rescue is to fill out an adoption application. You can find it here:
http://fs18.formsite.com/bigfluffydogs/form952673514/index.html

Once you have done that, an adoption coordinator will call you within 7 days. We have an interview process, vet check and home visit/property verification.

Adoptions are made on a best home basis. Our goal is to have the very best home for all our dogs. We carefully screen our dogs for temperament to ensure we are placing the right dog in the right home. Keeping our dogs in private foster homes allows us to tell you all about your dog. A dog in a kennel or shelter location does not have the benefit of family interaction and it is our goal to ensure that every dog is carefully screened.

Once you are approved to adopt your dog we will set up a meet and greet at the dogs foster home. All of our adoptable dogs are in the New England area, and we encourage meetings to ensure it is the right fit.

Before taking your dog home, we require you to sign an adoption contract and pay an adoption fee of $500 for dogs over 6 months old and $600 for puppies 6 months and younger. All of our dogs are spayed/neutered, have had all shots (age appropriate in the case of puppies) including bordetella (kennel cough), rabies, and the distemper/parvo series. All of our dogs have been heartworm screened and are heartworm negative, have had a clear fecal exam and are up to date on frontline and heartgaurd. This adoption fee covers any other medical treatments the dog may have had while in our care. All vet records travel with the dog. This adoption fee also covers all transport and health certificate costs we incur. We pay $150 of our adoption fee to the transport company we use and we pay $50 for the health certificate process required by law
