Manouche

It is with heavy hearts that Manouche's family has announced her passing. She was approximately 13-years-young. Moushy could not have found a better family with whom to spend the rest of her life and to share her love. Our heartfelt condolences go to Libbie and Darrell. We know she was a huge presence in their lives and she will be deeply missed.

Her story:

Manouche has found her forever home. Moushy's new people came out to meet her at the AGM on September 13th and, to their surprise, were able to leave with her on the same day. We knew they would pass the home visit which took place the next day.

It was a match meant to be. Her new people are absolutely thrilled. She is fitting in very well already with her new family. We couldn't be more pleased!

This was her story...

Moushy is looking for a forever foster home.

Moushy is a beautiful girl on the outside and inside. She is a 9-year old purebred Pyr who sadly had to come into rescue when her elderly person became ill.

She is the epitome of a Pyr in that she is aloof and barks at all things deemed a threat including butterflies.

She is, like a Pyr, good with people, children, cats, and dogs.

She will initiate play with any mates she has.

She is a high-ranked female which means she is very secure and confident in herself. She ignores those lower-ranked dogs who growl and snarl at her. A dog who attacked her would not be too wise.

She knows her commands.

Manouche would like to spend her years going on gentle walks. She must have a large securely-fenced yard in which to keep watch.

She has the beginnings of degenerative myelopathy which is a progressive disease of the spinal cord. As time goes, she will have difficulty getting up and eventually, we will no longer be able to stand.

Do your research on the Pyr. They dig holes in your garden to stay cool in the summer, and shed at least twice a year and will leave white dust bunnies throughout the year. She will need weekly grooming and nail trimming, including her dew claws.

They will wander if left loose since this is instinctive to them. This s why they are used to wander with the livestock they watch over.

Tie-outs are not suitable since this does not allow them to properly patrol their territory. They have been known to go through electric fencing and this can only makes them fearful once they are shocked.

Moushy will make the perfect companion for a lucky family. Can you give this sweet girl a lovely life in her twilight years? If you think your family is a good match for Moushy, please contact Craig at 416.894.4317

Update on Manouche
by: GPCSO

It is only when a dog contracts genenerative myelopathy at a young age that the disease progresses quickly.

In the case of sweet Moushy, she only has started it at age nine. This is better news since she will still live another three or 4 years.
