My name is Kensington!
I am already spayed, purebred, a special needs pet, up to date with shots, good with kids, and not good with dogs.
Please note that dogs in our program are only available for adoption to those living in Northern California (North of the Tulare/Kings-Kern and Monterey-San Luis Obispo county line), Oregon border counties and western Nevada (Washoe-Carson City-Douglas counties). Special exceptions for working LGDs may be made in neighboring counties on a case by case basis. In any case you must have adequate fencing. Please visit our website www.GPRNC.org for more information.
Kensington has had a haircut from her first picture to her last! She is an adult Great Pyrenees, is somewhere around 8 years old, and is a retired working Livestock Guardian Dog. She has been in fields and barn yards all her life but is taking to coming in the house and hanging out in the yard very nicely. She needs to be an only dog because she needs someone who will spend time with her and help her overcome being bounced from farm to farm (partly due to the economy and partly because she kept leaving her fields to go find people to hang with). She loves kids and going for car rides.
At 122 lbs Kensington is a happy butterball (she should weigh closer to 90lbs), but would be happier with diet and exercise. She had woolly coat that has been trimmed and needs regular trimming to keep her healthy and comfortable and looking her best. She will also need secure fencing as she likes to come find you when she feels it's time for some hugs and pets.
She is considered Special Needs and will qualify for a reduced adoption fee.
If you are new to Great Pyrenees and other Livestock Guardian breeds, we strongly recommend that you visit the Great Pyrenees Library, GreatPyreneesLibrary.info and read up on the breed, in particular the article 'Is this the breed for you?'
