Hello, Pyr Friends! Give a warm welcome to me, Bagel Oakland! Pyr pups are special, and to be raised right, I’ll need training through positive reinforcement, which means rewarding behavior with treats and praise. Because I’m so observant, I’m already learning how to be a good boy from the older dogs in my foster home. They’re like the yeast in the bagel dough just helping me to grow! Foster Mama says I’m very intelligent too, so I learn quickly. Like all puppies, I need potty training, leash training, and basic command training too. Doggy-safe peanut butter is a good motivator for me. I’ve heard some humans like to spread it on their morning bagel, so you’ll probably have a jar of it in the house. With all the positive reinforcement I’m getting from my foster family, I’ve already master the “sit” command. Everyone knows making a perfect bagel takes time and effort, and this Bagel is no different! Right now, I’m teething and like to chew which means I’ll need some sturdy chew toys to keep me busy. And, of course, I’ll need lots of love. Don’t worry because I give lots of love back. I’ll be the bagel to your cream cheese! This Bagel boy (that’s me) is described as brave and curious. I was such a courageous pup meeting the family cat, and I respect him a lot. I even learned how to love car rides! Foster Mom also says the leader of the pack. Makes sense because I’m a big pyr pup. In my book, the bigger the bagel, the better! In all my cute pics, you can see me exploring the yard and even taking a ride in a wagon. Foster Mama thinks that I’m basically the perfect combination of snuggles and sass. What more could you want? My cuddly nature combined with my playful personality is why I am so good with kids and other dogs! She also tells me that I’m the quintessential Great Pyrenees. Wow! Please consider adopting me and helping me to grow into the best pyr boy I can be!
