Cajun's Info...

I am already neutered, in need of an experienced adopter, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.

Cajun's Story...
Little Cajun is only little for right now! He is one of two boys in a litter of 3 puppies (brother Creole and sister Mardi listed separately) who were born and raised their first 5 weeks in the Louisiana Bayou underneath a chicken coup living with dogs, chickens and goats. Their mother is a purebred Great Pyrenees, and we believe dad must have been a Catahoula Leopard Dog based on their eyes and markings. Cajun has the most gorgeous deep blue eyes! As of March 20, Cajun is 7 weeks old. He will be available for adoption beginning April 1. He is likely to get very large, and so will not be suitable in an apartment or townhome.

Prior to adoption Cajun will have been dewormed, received two rounds of vaccines including one bordatella, and two parvo-distemper vaccines, and will be neutered and microchipped. He will have received a clean bill of health

We are seeking adopters for these puppies who have large breed experience and some familiarity with Great Pyrenees and Catahoula temperaments. Right now these babies are soft, cute, and cuddly, but will grow to be upwards of 75-100 lbs, possibly more, so positive reinforcement training and leadership is essential! They will make excellent family dogs but need to be properly socialized to ensure they do not become overprotective. These puppies definitely need a large fenced yard and ideally an active family.

Cajun is described by his foster family as a typical playful puppy who doesn't want to be far away from you. He sleeps a lot and eats, and plays! He is snuggly and cuddly as well. He is working on becoming pee pad trained, and beginning housebreaking has started. Cajun is being fostered in a home with many other dogs but no cats, so he is used to dogs but has never met cats. However, with a dog-friendly cat, he should be fine because he is so young. Cajun would prefer another confident canine brother or sister he can learn from, as he left his mother sooner than we would have liked.

These puppies will NOT be available for viewing unless we receive a completed application and have checked references prior to meeting, simply because the demand for them will be so great. Patience with our process is expressly requested due to high demand and only a few volunteers.

Interested adopters please email MJsAnimalSanctuary@gmail.com to request an adoption application. Adopters subject to reference check, vet reference (MUST have prior vet history), home visit(s) and meet and greet(s). Adoption fee applies. Get your applications in quickly, as these babies will not last long!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Cajun, a Bowie Great Pyrenees/Catahoula Leopard Dog puppy was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Great Pyrenees/Catahoula Leopard Dog for sale in Bowie, or seeking a Great Pyrenees/Catahoula Leopard Dog puppy from a breeder in Bowie.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Bowie already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Bowie breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Great Pyrenees/Catahoula Leopard Dog breeders who help with Great Pyrenees/Catahoula Leopard Dog rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Bowie paves the way for another one to be saved.
