MATTIE IS A COURTESY POSTING AND IS IN THE CINCINNATI AREA. SHE IS NOT WITH CANINE LIFELINE. PLEASE EMAIL RHONDA AT HERSHEYLAB1@GMAIL.COM IF YOU'RE INTERESTED IN MATTIE.
Mattie is 3.5 years old, spayed and up-to-date on her shots, HW preventive and flea treatment. She is likely a Great Pyrenees mix -- possibly with lab -- and she weighs about 85 lbs. She came from a farm where her owner was in his 80's, and his children thought she would cause him to fall, so they took Mattie to the shelter. She was very attached to her owner and quickly becomes attached to other humans with whom she spends any time. She loves to go for walks and is friendly with everyone she meets -- dogs and humans -- and she especially loves children. She gets excited when it's time to go for a walk and jumps up a little at the door to show her enthusiasm. She is used to being crated (48") but doesn't want to go into it willingly. She gets along fine with cats but may be tempted to chase, if a cat runs, thinking it is a game. Mattie has tried to chase squirrels, but she listens well when told 'no.' Mattie loves to be brushed and even likes going to the groomer. She's very patient, even when the groomer is drying her! Her fur is lovely, and she doesn't have much undercoat at all. Mattie's only issue is that she does not like to be grabbed by her collar. She becomes very frightened and agitated, as if something bad happened to her when someone had hold of her collar. So a harness would probably work better for her. Mattie is a beautiful girl with a personality to match, so deserving of a wonderful home and family.
