Gabriel was a stray picked up by animal control in rural West Virginia. He is very friendly and playful with people, and gets along very well with the resident dogs. Gabe has a joyful spirit! At the shelter, he even let the shelter cats boss him around! :-) He is a gentle and very sweet boy. And he LOVES kids!

Gabe enjoys hanging with his people, gnawing on deer antlers and playing with tennis balls. He does need some leash training, as he tends to pull hard when he is interested in something.

From observing his behavior since he arrived in CT, it appears that Gabe lived in a home at one time, as he is not spooked by appliance noise, like washing machines.

Gabriel weighs approximately 65 lbs and is about 3 years old (vet estimate).

Gabe appears to be a purebred Great Pyrenees, but he could be mixed with a breed like a golden retriever, since he is somewhat small for a pyr. Of course, this is a best guess based on appearance and temperament. Great Pyrenees do shed.

We will only adopt to people who are located within 75 minutes driving distance from the 06371 zip code. Exceptions are occasionally made if I have a good rescue friend who lives nearby your location who'd be able to complete the home visit (NY, NJ, MA, VT, NH, ME, RI, MA) Please email us at scruffafluffrescue@gmail.com for an application if you are interested in adopting Gabriel!

NOTE that if you use yahoo or AOL (or any other email other than gmail), email may end up in your spam box, so check it frequently if you have inquired on or applied for Gabriel. This has happened repeatedly to applicants when I send the application to them; the applicants think that I have not responded, when in fact my email to them has ended up in spam.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Gabriel, a Lyme Great Pyrenees/Golden Retriever dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Great Pyrenees/Golden Retriever for sale in Lyme, or seeking a Great Pyrenees/Golden Retriever dog from a breeder in Lyme.

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