Meet Blinkin’! This handsome little Great Pyrenees was born on July 28, 2016. He came into rescue with his sisters, Winkin’ and Nod. (That’s right; Winkin’, Blinkin’, and Nod!) His full-grown size will likely be around 70 pounds – a “pocket Pyr.”
Blinkin’ was frail and bony when he was first rescued. After getting to his new foster home and eating plenty of nutritious kibble, he transformed into gorgeous and healthy.
The more he is around people, the more he is finding his true happy self. He is learning to be curious, friendly, and loving. He is absolutely irresistible! He will melt your heart.
He is becoming known as a “photo-bomber” and scene stealer! It seems whenever there’s a camera around, he finds a way to be in the photo or be the star of the video.
He is bonded with his sister, Nod; and they would love to be adopted together. However, they have each shown that they are capable of navigating the world without each other as long as they have a canine companion and a loving human family.
PUPPIES WILL ONLY BE PLACED IN HOMES WITH YOUTHFUL, PLAYFUL, DOGS.
OUR REQUIREMENTS FOR PUPPY ADOPTION:
1) These puppies are not livestock dogs. They must be family pets that are allowed inside the home.
2) Homes with youthful, playful dogs provide the pup with a mentor which facilitates a smooth integration into your household.
3) In addition to the youthful playful dog, someone must be home at least part of the day. If you are away from home between 8-10 hours a day, please do not apply for a puppy as this circumstance is unfavorable for you and the puppy.
4) We give preference to applicants with prior Great Pyrenees experience or knowledge.
5) You must have a plan in place to properly socialize your puppy.
6) The FASTEST way to be considered for a puppy is to submit an application. We are continuously working through applications, including those that were received in advance of yours. It is very likely that by the time your application has been approved, the puppy may no longer be available.
7) Please do not inquire about a puppy's availability; the puppy is still available if the listing is displayed. Emailing for status updates will only result in a delay of your application review, and put you to the back of the line.
All of the individuals responsible for reviewing applications are volunteering what little bit of time s/he has in addition to their own dogs, families, careers, and responsibilities. Though we do our best to evaluate ALL applications swiftly, submissions for adult dogs do take priority - there are an abundant amount of people that only want to adopt a puppy.
All of our dogs require secure and VISIBLE fencing.
