This very handsome and sweet young Pyrenees/Lab boy is Yetti and he is looking for a great home of his own! He is a wonderful mix of two great breeds. Yetti does great with his foster mom and will come up to her for pets and head scratches - he is a very loving boy once he gets to know and trust you. Yetti would do great with a kind family willing to be patient with him as he settles into a new routine. He is new to leash walking so he can use more work on that. Yetti does well with other dogs and really likes to play so he would enjoy having another friendly dog or two to pal around with. His best pals now are Pearl and Sophia who all came in from one of the worst neglect cases we have ever seen (we were all heartbroken when we found out about this large group of dogs and how poorly they were treated). Yet despite such a tough start in life Yetti is a really sweet boy who has come such a long way! Yetti is a tripod - sadly when he was rescued most of his leg was missing and we have no idea what happened to him. He had surgery to remove the rest of it, and he is doing great on three legs. Yetti is heartworm positive and we are treating him with the slow kill method and will continue to provide the meds he needs to be heartworm free. He will likely be shy moving to a new home but should settle in just fine. He will be a great companion for some lucky adopter and we can't wait for this gentle boy to find a great home and family of his own!

NYS Registered Rescue # RR102
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.
