This handsome fellow is Salvador, also lovingly known as Big Sal :) Sal is pretty much THE pyrfect boy, and he deserves his very own pyrfect furever family! Prior to coming into rescue, Sal was well-loved, as he has excellent house manners and is quite the social butterfly when it comes to people. However, his people were unable to adequately care for him and thus made the difficult decision to surrender him so that he can find his furever family to love. This big boy LOVES hanging out with his people, even if it is just napping by your feet as you watch your favorite TV shows. If encouraged, Big Sal will not hesitate to reach up and sniff your face lovingly to greet you, though he doesn't complain if you prefer him to keep all his paws on the floor. Big Sal is an excellent playmate with his foster canine sibling - they always come up with fun games that you wish to join in. Indoors, this boy has an amazing off switch; he even won over the hearts of all the indoor kitties! While Big Sal is pretty much pyrfect all around, he is tall and flexible enough that he can easily scale a shorter fence or squeeze under those in need of repair. Nonetheless, he is content to patrol his territory as long as the fencing is secure at the bottom and he is not left unattended. We are pawsitive that Big Sal is in the running for the most pyrfect boy of the year, so don't miss out on this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to be this handsome boy's furever person!

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.
