Our Great Pyrenees Rescue Bert was a 5 year old neutered male when he came to us for Rescue in July 2007 and entered our dog adoption program. Bert was a lovely dog who was great with people but unfortunately had territorial issues with other dogs. This did present a problem in placing him as he would not do well in a home which already had pets. Further, he was aggressive with other dogs in a social atmosphere - even out walking.
Bert needed a home where his new owners would have lots of patience with him and take the time to gradually increase his social skills. Bert was not a simple dog adoption case.
It was possible that these skills would never be fully developed. Bert was also a bit of an escape artist so needed a secure home with some space where he could roam.
Bert was in rescue for nearly 10 months before being placed. His new home is located on 200 acres of property - lots of room to roam and not too near other dogs. His owners have horses and Bert has learned to guard the horses, which are now part of his "flock". Bert is happy and thriving. His social skills are still being worked on, but with the patience and kindness of his new owners we know he will do quite well.
Thank you for supporting our dog adoption efforts and providing Bert a great home in which to thrive.

I live where there are deer. Do you think my boy is out killing them. He brings home quite a few bones. I know he gets a rabbit or turkey every once

Is it normal for a GP puppy who has bladder infection and given antibiotics by the vet to not want to leave his crate? Is it normal for him to be so lethargic?

We have had Kaiser Allen since he was 8 weeks old. He and I bonded instantly and intensely. He is perfect with my kids, rescue Beagle, and cats. Allen

We rescued a great Pyrenees on our own... he's had a lot of medical problems, and we've just got his weight up, but I think he's developing a heat rash.

What do they eat when they are in the mountains with their flock and left alone? This is Murfie at 8 weeks and 10 months. Sorry for the error.
