Meet Neffie! She is a gorgeous Great Pyrenees mix with striking color features. Weighing in at 125 pounds, she is most likely mixed with some sort of mountain dog or Saint Bernard.
Neffie was born around November 1, 2012 and still has quite a bit of energy. Take her on a walk or to play outside, and you'll see her puppy side come out!
When she’s done romping, she loves to be under your hand as much as possible, soaking up all the love you have to give. She is a couch cuddler most of the time. She is a low-maintenance girl and is super-eager to please.
Neffie has bothersome air-borne allergies that cause her skin to itch like crazy. This is usually a life-long condition that can be controlled with allergy medicine. We have placed dogs like her in the southwestern states in the drier desert-type environment, and their allergy symptoms virtually disappeared.
She was in rough shape before coming into rescue. Her allergies and itching caused various skin conditions from which she is recovering well. She had joint stiffness from years of lying on hard floors, lack of good care, and lack of exercise. It would be great if her new home doesn’t have stairs, and if it has carpet or rugs to help her get traction.
Because of her large size, Neffie would do best in a home without small children. We don’t want them getting accidentally knocked down.
She gets along well with other dogs. She would be happy with a doggie companion, or as an only dog. She’s even good with cats!
