Since I’m only a year old–and weigh 70 lbs.—there’s plenty of time in “forever” for me to learn a new name, if you want to give me one that is. You could call me Housetrained, She Who’s Good with Dogs, Cats, and Kids or maybe Happy Dog with Nose Out the Car Window. Well, those are kinda long for first names now that I say them out loud. I bet you can think of a shorter name for a friendly, active, playful, noise, family dog who is a little shy at first, likes to go running, and is totally OK with you touching her collar. Since I’m that dog, that name would be mine, too! And after we play the name game, we can try the be-patient-while-you-help-me-learn-big-girl-barking-manners activities I’ve heard so much about in Pyr circles. ApPYRently many of us need help adapting some of our breed tendencies to neighborhood living. So, what do you think? Are you ready to please email firstname.lastname@example.org, click “Contact Us” or choose “Apply to Adopt” below? I hope so because I’m ready for my new home and maybe even a new name.
