Meet lovely Barron! His foster mommy calls him Fozzy Bear’un! He is a young dog with an old soul. We estimate he was born around August 13, 2015. He is a big boy at 100 lbs!
This sweet-natured Great Pyrenees gentleman is the most laid back love bug you'll ever hope to meet! He is housebroken and loves, loves kids!! He is great with male and female dogs of sizes. Any fellow canine companions need to be of the sweet and kind variety. He hasn't met any cats.
When not inside with his humans, Barron loves to be outside, content with keeping watch at the back door or gate, warning you of all intruders, squirrels, leaves, raindrops, and more.
His former owner surrendered Barron to rescue for seemingly sudden aggression. After a stay in boarding and some training, it was discovered that Barron has eye problems. The apparent aggression was because he couldn't see people "sneaking" up on him!
After seeing a doggy eye doctor, it was determined that Barron has a small cataract in his right eye and chronic dry eye in his left, with goo build up. A few minutes of eye meds a few times a day is all he needs, and he needs this treatment for the rest of his life. His new human must be willing to do this for him. It's really easy and he's a good boy while you do it.
Barron’s new family will need to be patient with this gorgeous, gentle boy. They must always be cognizant of his vision loss, and be careful to approach him on the side where he can see.
Barron is available for adoption only in the Dallas/Fort Worth area. Is he the boy for you?
