Our Great Pyrenees Rescue Smoothie Has Found His Forever Home

Our Great Pyrenees Rescue Team is always grateful for the services provided by our Foster Families. They really provide such a valuable service. Here is the story of Smoothie as told by his Foster Mom.

Smoothie came to me from one of the SPCAs. His family had to move into an apartment because of unemployment and Smoothie couldn’t follow them. He is about 22 months old and is still a big baby in many respects.

The SPCA called me and Smoothie stayed with me for three weeks getting his bearings and learning about other Pyrs. He wanted a human of his own and a job to do.

A couple who wanted a house dog and a guardian for their horses came. He liked the man immediately. The lady was nervous at first but she soon got used to being in the company of a big dog.

She worked with her horses every day and the man kept Smoothie with him. However, the man took a contract for six months and had to leave his wife alone with Smoothie.

Smoothie decided she needed guarding from the horses and wouldn’t let them approach her. This was not working as planned and she just couldn’t get the point across to him. So Smoothie came back to me.

He considers raw carrots and broccoli flowers a treat! When the lady gave these to each horse, Smoothie insisted on having one too.

Smoothie now has a new life. He has gone to an experienced Pyr owner to learn the intricacies of guarding sheep from a very experienced Pyr lady who will instruct him in the proper behaviour of livestock guardianship.

He had shown all the proper talents when he was with me and listened very well to my dogs as they instructed him in proper outdoor living. Actually, he wanted to stay here with them and become a Pitou du Val Perché!

I find it difficult at times to send them on their way.

And so it is with Fostering a Pyr. Many thanks for being a valuable member of our Great Pyrenees Rescue Team.

Smoothie our Great Pyrenees Rescue has found happiness in his new forever home.
