Digger's Info...

Digger's Story...
UPDATE SEPT 15 - Digger is undergoing an intensive behavior modification program. She is a resource guarder and we're giving her every opportunity to respond to behavior modification. She loves people, and is great with other animals as long as there isn't food or bones around. If there is, she is not reliable. Once she's ready for adoption, we aim to place her as an only pet in a child-free home. Digger absolutely loves people and she wags and gives kisses to visitors in my home, but she does require an experienced handler due to her behavior around resources.

Update March 15 2010 - Cleo (formerly Digger) has arrived safely in foster care. Updates about her will follow as she settles in!

We've been contacted and asked to help Digger, who is next in line to be euthanized. Not much information now except that she was fine until 10 months of age when she went into heat, and became testy. We've seen how much a heat cycle can mess with hormones and mood and have agreed to take her, if we can make room.

She is snotty with other dogs at present but still in heat. She's untested with cats and while we don't know much about her at this time, we prefer not to place her with children.

*nb all the information we have on this dog is here. As we get more information, it will be updated here. If this dog is listed, this dog is still available.*

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Guelph 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 Guelph 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 breeders who help with Great Pyrenees rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Guelph paves the way for another one to be saved.
