My Story

This very handsome extra fluffy Pyrenees boy with the great smile is Woody. He came to rescue in TN from a very crowded shelter who reached out to us for rescue help to find him a great home. Woody loved playing with all of the dogs in the play yard at the shelter. He is initially a bit shy in new situations and he can be a bit timid meeting new people at first but warms up quickly and then he wants to be your new best friend! So like most Pyrenees he takes a bit of time to adjust to unfamiliar situations, but once he does, he is just great. He would do well in a home with other dogs but he seemed a bit too interested in the cats so we're recommending a cat-free home. He seems to walk well on leash and he does fine in the car as well. Woody is a happy guy with a great smile - he would absolutely love to find a new home of his own. He has the most gorgeous long coat and beautiful beige markings...such a handsome fellow! Woody is very neat in his kennel so he may likely be housetrained. He is a good boy, calm and sweet. He enjoys attention and affection. Woody would love a doggie companion to bounce around the yard with. He has not been a digger and seems to respect fencing. This big calm fellow can’t wait to find his new family. He has recently moved from boarding to a foster home so we will update soon with new info.

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.
