Great Pyrenees

Zip-a-dee-doo-dah, zip-a-dee-a! My oh my, it’s a wonderful, puppy day! I’m Zippy, and I’m so excited to meet you. I’m a baby pyr pup who is ready to zip right into the life of the family who is perfect for me. My foster parents say that I truly am zippy. I move fast around the house, and I love to run in the yard. Because of my energy level, I’ll definitely need a fenced-in backyard to play in. I’m athletic too! I can easily zip, or jump, over furniture, so a six-foot fence will be best for me. When I’m inside the house, I have to get out my puppy energy too, so I need lots of sturdy chew toys, Kong toys stuffed with yummy snacks, and antler ears, please! As a puppy, I have such a zest for life that sometimes I get a little mouthy or jump up out of excitement, but those chew toys and chewy treats keep me occupied and redirect me. My foster family tells me, though, that their favorite thing about me is how much I love them. It makes me a good listener because I really want to please my humans. Even when I’m zigging and zagging in the grass, I always come when called. Foster Mom and Foster Dad taught me “sit” as well, and I’m learning “come” and “off.” Basically, it’s easy to get me to learn new commands through positive reinforcement because I’m treat-motivated and adore praise and attention! My fosters also complimented me on how smart I am. I am already house-trained, and Foster Mom takes me out frequently to reinforce my potty-training. Foster Mama put bells on the back door, so I paw them whenever I need to ask to go outside to potty. Leash-walking is another skill I’ve picked up. When we see other dogs in the neighborhood, my tail does a zingy wag left and right which means I think I’ll enjoy other dogs in the home. I’m also a good car rider, so I’m really ready to come home with you. If you have a zeal for pyr pups and you’re ready to put in the time and effort it takes to raise one, then consider adopting me today.
