Well, we've been fostering Ser Barristan Selmy - for approximately a month and a half (Just in case anyone is curious, his name is from Game of Thrones).  He's just about 6 and a half months old and we're guessing around 60lbs.  He's a beautiful boy with all the Pyr traits you'd expect!  He's great with our older shepherd mix who is about 11 years old and just wants to play with him.  We've not had him around other dogs but would not be surprised if he got along with most dogs.  

He's alright with our two cats, and he will chase but it is more out of curiosity and is usually deterred with a hiss and a swat.  Selmy is mostly house-trained and will ask to go out when he needs to.  He has had a few accidents, but those are getting fewer each week.  He sleeps like a log all night and doesn't make a peep. He likes to sleep under the bed, which he won't be able to do much longer!  Selmy is also a counter surfer, so be aware and keep things out of his reach.  He eats twice daily and gets about 4.5 to 5.5 cups of puppy food.  He's not possessive of his toys, bones or food.

Selmy came to us with very little training.  We've been working on this daily and have made some progress.  He absolutely requires an owner with consistency, time, and patience.  We are not sure how he is with children.  He does get very excited around people and would likely do better with older children because of his size.  He loves to play fetch and enjoys a good belly scratch.  

He's crated whenever we leave the house (tried to leave him out once and we had a lot to clean up afterwards).  He's not a night barker and rarely barks inside. Outside, however, he does bark occasionally and this will increase as he gets older and discovers he likes his voice.  He needs someone who has knowledge of the breed, is willing to work through the puppy stage, and is willing to spend time and energy with him. We are working on positive re-enforcement and may be looking into obedience classes (as suggested by Carol Graham).  

He is going to make someone a beautiful family dog, of that we are sure. Are you the right family for this sweetie? Please contact us if you want to meet this fella.

Selmy has found his forever home.

Selmy is getting bigger and he's about a little over 80lbs now.

Selmy was neutered in April and he's calmed down quite a bit. He's still full of that good old Pyr puppy energy and he's still fetching (we can't believe it)! Selmy is getting much better on a leash and is calming down very quickly when company arrives.

He is still getting along great with our 11 year old Shepherd mix and is quite submissive. He's fully house-trained now. He is in a large crate when we are at work which he doesn't seem to mind.

Selmy is turning into a sweetheart who needs a family that will continue to work with him through what remains of his puppy years. Selmy is a quick learner and is eager to please.

He loves his tummy being rubbed and enjoys nothing more than lazing around the backyard with us whenever we are home.

He's getting a lot better in the house, just normal puppy teaching opportunities (chewing things, counter surfing) but overall, he's doing just great!

He'd do best with older children as he can get quite excited and forgets just how big he is getting!

He is going to make someone a beautiful family dog, of that we are sure. Are you the right family for this sweetie? Please contact us if you want to meet this fella.
