Hi, this is me, Felix - I really, really want to be in a home with a nice, active family. An active couple, who will spoil me ,will do as well. Just come and meet me and take me home with YOU!
I am very sweet goofball with some energy. I like to be cuddled and sit or lay with you. More than anything I love to run and play, go on hikes, like to make friends with most other dogs, maybe not all of them.
I am a strong dog and need some leash training, yes I pull in the beginning but I think if YOU walk with me every day, I will do so much better. I know how to sit for treats and believe me, I am a very smart boy and can learn fast!
I think I would make a good family dog with a little bit older kids. The rescue thinks that I could accidently run over a little one since I am still a big puppy myself.
A BIG 6 FOOT FENCED YARD/PROPERTY FOR HIM TO RUN AROUND AND PATROL IS A MUST!
NO APPARTEMENTS/TOWNHOMES/DUPLEX OR UNDERGROUND ELECTRIC FENCING PLEASE!!!
Once a Pyrenees has been released by it's former owner, rescued from a shelter, or been found as a stray, PYRescue accepts all responsibility for their medical care, feeding, grooming, training, and ultimate placement in a new home.
All prospective new guardians complete an adoption application and enter into a legally binding contract that specifies the care required for a Pyrenees and provides for reclamation of the Pyrenees by PYRescue if PYRescue ever has reason to feel that the care of the Pyrenees does not meet the PYRescue standard.
Under no circumstances is an intact Pyrenees ever released to a new Guardian. All adoptions are followed up on a periodic basis to assure that PYRescue standards are met.
All potential new guardians must meet with PYRescue personnel and the Pyrenees considered for adoption. Wherever possible the adoptive Pyrenees and other family dogs are also introduced in neutral territory. In the final analysis, the adoptive Pyrenees must be willing to go with the prospective new guardian. If the Pyrenees hesitates or refuses to go the whole adoption is off (we have had several instances of this and if the Pyr does not want to go we find another acceptable home for that Pyr). In general, many of the rescued Pyrenees have been family pets before coming to PYRescue for adoption. If at all possible, they are placed in a pet-oriented family home. However, the ever growing need to find homes has caused PYRescue to place Pyrs also in ranch/farm oriented environments, especially as related to small llama and sheep herds. This approach appears to be working well in situations where the new owners are prepared to be both patient and compassionate towards the Pyr in relation to his/her new environment.
PYRescue also develops and publishes various educational documents related to the guardianship and care of the Great Pyrenees.
