Scout ON HOLD's Story...
Update.....We have very sad news about Scout. He has been diagnosed with bone cancer in his right front leg. Scout will no longer be available for adoption and our goal now will be to keep him comfortable and happy for as long as possible. He is currently on pain meds and doing well right now. Please keep "Scouty" in your thoughts. We will cherish every day we have with him. FOSTERED IN BLOOMINGTON...Scout is a big(118#), handsome 5 year old male. He has been in our program for a long time now. He came to us lacking socialization after having limited contact with people as a youngster. Scout's special need is that it takes him a long time (days, weeks, possibly months) to trust someone new. Scout will walk on leash and rides well in the car, but sometimes will put his brakes on and/or try to bolt if faced with something new and unfamiliar. He goes to the groomer and has made trips to public places to gain social experience. Scout has never gone potty in his inside kennel area and enjoys sleeping on a big soft bed. He is a big goof ball once you earn his trust and loves to have his tummy rubbed. Scout is best suited to an adult home able to continue giving him the training and experience he needs. He would do best in a home with a well socialized large breed female canine companion and it is unknown how he would do with cats. Secure fencing is required for safe outside time.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Scout ON HOLD, a Bloomington Great Pyrenees dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Great Pyrenees for sale in Bloomington, or seeking a Great Pyrenees dog from a breeder in Bloomington.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Bloomington 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 Bloomington 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 Bloomington paves the way for another one to be saved.
