Great Pyrenees Rescue Ben

Ben is a wonderful older Great Pyrenees who is looking for a home through no fault of his own. Ben was surrendered because his owner could not afford to look after him.

Ben is a quiet and easy going dog who gets along with other dogs and cats. We were told he also gets along with horses and other farm animals.

Ben walks well on the leash and knows basic obedience commands. Ben is easy to groom and handle.

Ben has hypothyroidism which means his thyroid glands do not produce enough thyroid hormones. This is easily managed with twice a day medication. Now that Ben is on this medication, we expect his hair to grow back and his skin to return to normal.

If you would like more information on Ben, please contact Dr. Carol Graham at:

Clinic: (519) 855-6439 - provide information to receptionist if Carol not available
