Elf's Story...
Birthdate: 10/13/12

Gender: Male, neutered

Breed: Great Pyrenees/Border Collie mix

Siblings: Claus, Kringle, Elf, Noel, Vixen

Patience might be a virtue, but it’s not always the wisest course of action, as the former owner of these little fluffballs can attest.

She found the parents of the pups when they were just pups themselves. They were running the streets as strays, and she couldn’t bear the thought of something horrible happening to them, so she took them in. Given how pretty they were, she thought for sure someone else would snatch them up as pets.

So she called her local humane society and asked if they would take the pair off her hands. The humane society said they were full at the moment, but they could put her on the waiting list. She agreed and began to wait for their call… .. and wait.. .. and wait.. ..

How long did she wait? Two years!

In the meantime, the pups (who were then adults) had had two litters.. .. the final one being these little marshmallows.

Finally she called New Lease on Life for help. We immediately agreed to take the puppies and arranged to have their mother spayed so this would never happen again. As cute as the pups are, she didn’t need to have any more litters.

Now the pups are ready for new homes, and they’re going to make beautiful additions to some very lucky families.

We believe the pups are Great Pyrenees/Border Collie mixes. Both parents are roughly 55 to 60 pounds, so we’re expecting the pups to be medium-sized dogs when they’re all grown up. They are not yet housebroken, but they’re still just babies, so they’ll pick it up quickly. We recommend crate training as the quickest, easiest way to housebreak, and we’ll be happy to give you some pointers.

The pups have been very well socialized with other dogs, cats and kids. In fact, they’re living in the Cat Room right now, and you’ll see a few of our cats and kittens making guest appearances in the puppy vids. As long as the cats don’t mind getting licked to death, they get along just fine.

You can meet the Christmas pups at the shelter any time during adoption hours, Thursday through Sunday 5 to 8pm, or call 330-397-8270 to schedule a private appt at another time or on another day. They have already been spayed/neutered, vaccinated, dewormed and flea treated, so they’re ready to join new families right away.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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