Tina

D.O.B. July 12, 2017

Located in Erin, Ontario

This sweetheart Great Pyr came in because she became protective of the 10-year-old child when that child's friends came to visit. She has never bitten but warns. That is what you want in a dog. She has bite inhibition for humans.

She will go to a home with children over 16-years-old.

She may make a good working dog with a little guidance and consistent positive training.

She is a medium-ranked dog. This means she lacks confidence with other dogs. That said, she presently is with another female Pyr who doesn't react to her, and there are no issues. Your job will be to build up her confidence.

She has bitten another dog that was her size. She seems to talk a lot with some growling but also out of being unsure about another dog. It's important to listen to what she is trying to say. Walk away and distract her from the other dog.

It has been noted to us that she doesn't like to be surprised when sleeping. We can understand this. She also resource guards her food. Let her eat in peace, and work with her on this.

She is good in the car. She knows commands assis and couche.

Like a good Pyr, she likes to dig in the yard to stay cool.

It was noted in her assessment that Tina was a bored dog, and needs to be worked with. A pre-requisite will be to sign up for the Home School the Dog program. Proof of registration will be required within the month trial. We want to set her up for success.

She must have secure fencing of at least 5-feet on all four sides.

We will ask for the $400 adoption contribution upfront. If after the month trial things are not working out, we will refund you the contribution once we have Tina back in our care. After the month, there will be no refund as is standard in our contract. All contributions go back to give medical care to rescue dogs coming to us.


If you feel you are a suitable family for her, please fill out our adoption application.
