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!
All of our dogs require secure and VISIBLE fencing.
Adoption Fee: $300
* Note to NW Adopters: The adoption fee does not include the cost of transport.
There are many things YOU can do to help us:
1. Adopt! If this Gentle Giant looks like the one for you, fill out an adoption application today!
2. Foster! This is a temporary commitment that gives all dogs in need the assured time to find the loving home they deserve. Your benevolent decision to foster unquestionably determines whether a loving dog gets to live or die.
3. Donate! Safeguarding these Gentle Giants result in expenses that are in upwards $8/day. If veterinary care is needed, the costs exponentiate to $1,000+ for a single dog. Every penny you donate makes an impact when it comes to vet bills! If you were to make a one-time donation of just $25, you would be adding 3 more valuable days to the life of every rescued dog and provide the chance to find the home they have been waiting for their entire life.
As always, all donations are gratefully accepted.
Every dog adopted thru the GPRS program is up to date on all vaccinations, spayed/neutered and on heartworm preventative.
