Great Pyrenees Rescues Jack and Leo

Great Pyrenees Rescues Jack and Leo

I have just received new pictures of a very happy pair of rescue dogs in their homes, adopted last year, 2010.

The lady was looking for a puppy but she saw the gentle Leo here being evaluated and deconditioned from his old life after having had to find a new home. She fell in love with him and came back to visit him several times. They decided to go off together.

Several months later, she realized that Leo needed company after having spent the months here with a whole bunch of other Pyrs.

She saw Touffer who was a very active teenager and she thought his masque was very attractive. She came back again to visit him and she brought Leo several times to see how the two boys would get along. We usually do not recommend same sex pairing because aggression can occur.

The two dogs got on famously. Now, a year later, they still do. Leo, gentle as he is, is a year older and definitely in charge. Touffer follows his directions. He has gained a new name, Black Jack, because of his masque, which devolved into simply Jack.

Here is an update from his new owner.

“I thought that you would like to see some pictures of Jack and Leo.  One of the pictures is of me with Jack and Leo at the cottage.  This picture is on the BB Canada website for my bed and breakfast cottage rental.  The other pictures are of Jack and Leo relaxing after a hard day at work?!

They are very content and happy with us and each other. They love going to the farm and the cottage.“

The two boys seem to be couch potatoes but they are actually constant companions for the lady and guard and the premises wherever she is. They are quite at ease traveling from one residence to the other and greet arrivals at the B&B and at their farm.

The pictures show them relaxing after having spent “hard” hours of work ensuring the safety of the lodgings.

We love happy endings like this.
