My Story

Dale is a handsome young Pyr mix who’s eyes will melt your heart! He had a rough start in life and he’s looking for a family that will make his eyes smile again. Dale has come such a long way in rescue and is doing so well. He’s is doing well warming up to new people and environments, but he still needs slow and proper introductions. Once he does warm up to you, Dale is the sweetest, most loving guy there is. He is true to his Pyrenees and Anatolian breed mix - a loyal protector of his family and territory. He is getting more comfortable around other dogs and enjoys his visit to the kennel to see his canine buddies, but still has issues sharing. For this reason, he would probably be best as an only dog but would benefit from well-supervised and structured socialization with other dogs. Dale is skeptical of new adults because of how they have treated him in the past, but he seems much more comfortable around children. Proper supervision around child and dog is always required, but Dale seems to be very happy, calm and at ease around the little ones. Dale is a very easy-going guy who is happy to entertain himself (and you!) with his dorky antics playing with his toys. He is very smart and can even pick out specific toys from his toy bin :) Dale’s perfect home is a quiet, relaxing environment where he can feel safe. He will reward your patience in helping him overcome his fears, with endless love and affection. If you think you are the Pyrfect family for Dale, apply today!

Our goal is to assess every application on its own merits. Key considerations are: 1) the experience of the applicant with large breed dogs 2) children in the household or regularly visiting the household are ready for a large-breed dog who is a guardian by nature and 3) the sex of other dogs currently residing in the household to avoid same-sex aggression issues. For puppies under six months old, the applicant’s ability to socialize the puppy with older dogs is a priority.
