My Story

Sunflower is an adorable, young, Pyr mix girl who adores attention! She is doing so well in her foster home and has come so far from the horrible environment she found herself in early on. Sunflower was rescued from a hoarding situation but that hasn’t stopped her from being a sweet and affectionate girl after she’s given time to warm up. She has been living outside but she’s getting more and more interested in coming into the house. Every time her humans come out she’s thrilled to see them and runs up to accept pets. Sunflower hasn’t started on any training yet, she’s been focused on coming out of her shell and learning to be loved on by humans and she’s doing a great job! She wants nothing more than to please her people, so we believe she will do well with training. Sunflower is working on her leash skills, but she’s not a fan so will require patience. She’s also not a fan of the car or loud noises. Sunflower would do well in any loving home that has people with patience and time to help her keep improving in these areas. She loves meeting new people and happily sits to receive pets. She also does very well with children. Sunflower has a lot of potential and with the right family and environment she will thrive and make her humans very happy. She will reward your patience, love and kindness with lots of affection so apply for sweet Sunflower today! To foster please fill out our form at

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.
