Hey there. I am Thibodeaux. Yeah, my previous owners named me after an Oregon Ducks player, so let’s keep it simple. You can call me Tibby.
I am still a young Pyr learning good manners and need patience, time, and ongoing training to become “Tibby the very best Great Pyrenees.”
Thanks to my Pyr-loving foster family, I am working on a few obedience issues and being taught how to “lay down” on command. Upon learning that I will receive treats if I listen to my foster mom’s command, I will put my paw on her hand to ensure that the treat is mine while also responding to the “lay down” command. I’m a good Tibby, right?
Here are a few other things my foster family has learned about me.
“Tibby is a cuddler, smart, sweet, a kisser, a nose bumper, a pleaser, loyal, and full of life and smiles.” (Aww… thank you! If you love me, I will smile at you all day long!)
“Tibby is a big love and loves to lean into his people. He loves hugs and will occasionally jump up gently to give hugs.” (I love my humans!)
“We will continue to work on desensitizing Tibby to whatever noises cause him to bark.” (Did you know it is immensely beneficial to Pyrs when their humans help us determine which noises do not need barking because all is okay and which noises are bark-worthy. So when my foster mom tells me, “enough bark,” I will just moan. She thinks I’m pretty funny!)
“Tibby is a GREAT guard dog and will definitely alert you to anything. (See, I know some things need my watchful eyes, ears, and barks!)
“Tibby is very active. He will run if you run, walk if you walk, and walk all day with you!” (Yes, I love being with my humans.)
“Tibby should not be crated as he hates crates.” (Yes, please never put me in a crate.)
So, that is a bit about me. My foster family cannot wait to tell you more about me, so come meet me soon!
Your smiley and still learning Pyr boy, Tibby
