Great Pyrenees

Are you dog smart? Do you know anyone patient enough to take this 4-year-old, 94 lb. boy from living with an inexperienced, uncertain owner to a cherished family member? I’m not pointing any paws, but a mix of good intentions from my dad, fear from my mom, and lack of dog knowledge from both confused me and undid my confidence. I think this is why I don’t like being forced or pulled and need to meet new people and other dogs slowly. But, once I meet them, I am good with other dogs and cats, and I like kids, if they aren’t pulling on me or hurting me. Actually, I’m pretty laid back and happy to hang on the bed or sofa with you—which would be a real treat since I spend a lot of time in my crate these days. Oh, and I also know the commands sit, stay, come, and down. Car rides are fun so it should be easy going places to practice my social skills. Oh, hey, we could go to the groomer for nail trims—I don’t like it when my humans do it at home plus, the groomer gives me treats!! So, back to my original question: are you dog smart? Do you know someone who could be the strong alpha I need to regain my confidence and be my best Pyr self? If so, please email or click “Apply to Adopt” below.
