I am already neutered, purebred, in need of an experienced adopter, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and not good with cats.
Hi, my name is Harris and I'm 2 1/2 yrs old neutered male. I'm young and have a lot of energy and am athletic. My former owner would jog 5K with me twice weekly so, while Great Pyrenees are running dogs per say, I enjoy it and can keep up with you. I like other dogs and I'm playful. I'd chase cats if you let me but, I'm not mean. I play a little rough so I wouldn't be good in a home with small children. I've had a good amount of training and know commands. I like going for walks, and runs and rides in the car. I'd make a great family dog in a home with older kids or an active retired home.
We belong to a breed club and take in Great Pyrenees and Great Pyrenees mix dogs. Once a dog is taken into our program, it is restored to health, brought current on all vaccines, micro chipped, had microscopic fecal exams and treated for parasites and worms and had a heart worm test. If positive they are treated before making adoptable and if negative, they are put on a heart worm monthly preventative as well as a preventative for fleas and ticks. All dogs are groomed prior to adoption and are in good health.
Come Meet Our Pets...
Our pets can be viewed by click the link: https://www.petfinder.com/pet-search?shelterid=CA957 or by visiting our web site www.spgpc. Dogs are housed at our private facility and appointments to view the animals are easily made by calling (916) 791-7580. We are located in Granite Bay, CA which is 23 miles East of Sacramento. We often frequent adoption events, so dogs can be viewed at those sites when they occur.
Our Adoption Process...
Applicants have to fill out an application. Go to http://www.spgpc.com/adoptionprocess.htm The application consists of 4 pages and 60 questions relating fenced yards, whether they have had this breed before or large dogs. Three references are required, one from their veterinarian, one from someone they've gotten a dog from before (if applicable) and a personal reference. If the application looks good, then we proceed to the references. If the references are good then we schedule a home study to make sure the dogs will thrive in that environment. Finally we engage the applicants into a contract that spell out their responsibility to the dog and us and our responsibility to them and the dog they are adopting. We then assign a mentor to help them through the transition period and a 1 yr membership to the club. Whether they maintain the membership in force or not we are still a resource to them for the life of the dog. And should life happen, we always take our dogs back.
