Story
1.5 female purebred Great Pyrenees. She is leash & kennel trained. Primarily outdoor, with minimally indoor exposure during severe weather. She is very submissive to human & obedient. Excellent on a leash. Protects farm from predators. Demeanor has improved with chickens, but will kill them when left unattended. Very protective of space, food & kill. Gets along with dogs, unless in her territory or with her food. Very sweet & loves to cuddle! Needing a home that can allow her to run free & continue her amazing protection. We are only rehoming due to the territory issues it is causing with our elderly Labrador.

Story
Tyson is a 4x return!!!..for being a hound!! This is crazy to us as he is such a sweet dog. That face is as sweet as he is. Things he's been returned for you to consider. #1 Fence climbing..he can and will if allowed, here on the farm the rescue is on he can be off leash with us as he just wants to be close to us..once you are his people goodness he LOVES his people he just doesn't want to be left alone. He also will cause a ruckus in a crate again if allowed. He's learned that the louder he is the human will give in..but here at the rescue he's quiet amd sleeps the day away in his kennel. #2 He will not tolerate rude behavior from children. In the incident the child wanted to sit with him and 'snuggle' him. It was reported that several times he growled and moved away and the adults said to leave him alone but the youngster just couldn't resist his cutness and he did pin her to the floor to sternly explain to her the best way he could at the time that he said no, and he meant it. Again here atthe rescue Tysons favorite thing to do is be with you, on you, wrapped around your neck!! We have several pictures of him being the neck pillow and he put himself there. So it's also been proven that he gives good warning. #3 pulling..that's a give in and the beautiful soul that had this issue loved this boy so much and if she was younger it wouldn't have been an issue at all. At the rescue he walks beautifully untill he smells something and that nose takes off as a hound dog should. #4 he was Loud....I don't care to waste my time defending him on that one they were warned. He knows his voice is beautiful and he deeply wants you to know how he's feeling. This kid has been threw ALOT. We are currently training with him with the Halo collar system. His new home must have one. We love this amazing boy and want his forever home to perfectly fit him. Be prepared to prove your love and experience and plan for commitment. We know that home exist and he is safe with us until we find it:) Tyson is our darling diamond hound. He came to the rescue with a broken leg and spent months healing and rehabbing. He almost got a home in TN but was returned because he tried to jump the fence and they live by a very busy road so he was returned...then he got adopted by the sweetest family but their toddler wanted to show him he love with snuggles and in a way he wasn't confortable with and after several warnings from him he corrected her for not listening. Luckily she is ok but Tyson was returned. Tyson is the sweetest laziest hound dog he just wants to chill and be close. He loves children but they must be able to respect his boundaries. He's good with most dogs and cats. We know the perfect home is out there for him. Please contact us for adoption information.

Story
These beautiful babes came to the rescue from a hoarding situation. They were loved and well fed but not socialized. Their 1st days here they were afraid of everything new they had never had collars on, no idea what leashes were for, Unsure of the grass and gravel. Now they are pretty normal for shelter pups they just want fed and loved and all the play time they can get!! They need homes asap we are currently at our max limit as most shelters and rescues are these beautiful dogs do not deserve to grow up in shelters they are super smart. Alot more labby then bully in his personality. Most love to fetch and retrieve and they just love people. They have never lived in a home so they will need house training and obedience but they are ready to learn and they learn fast. Hunter here is a lover he just want to be extra close. The night he came here he was beat up pretty badly by his brothers in that short time of his healing he grew rather close to me. He is quick to bond and a very loyal boy. If you have a great life waiting for Hunter please contact us for your adoption application.

Story
We got in 18 puppies from a family that desperately needed our help. 3 unaltered dogs can turn into 30 unaltered dogs in a matter of months!! And they did. This is why we spay/neutered everything before it leaves our care. For having this many animals their temperments are wonderful!! Very loving and playful. All are learning how to walk on leashes and will soon be ready for homes!! They are big boned bully babies..the family originally said pitbull mixes but they are definitely on the bigger end 9mo ols 50 75# and growing. A DNA test would be fun to know what is actually in there. They for sure are 100% adorable please spread the word and let's help these pups find their forever family!!
