I am a giant, loving Great Pyrenees. My Mom and Dad rescued me from The Anna Shelter 2 1/2 years ago. I was malnourished, mistreated, and had lost much of my fur - plus, I had many sores all over my body. I was not a happy puppy. From the moment my Mom and Dad laid eyes on me, there was an instant connection and I knew my life was about to change forever - and for the better! I've since gained 65 lbs. and I am happy and blessed to have found such a wonderful and loving home. For those of you not familiar with my breed, I come from the Pyrenees Mountains of France. I am a working breed who was bred to protect the sheep from the wolves.
Things I Have Learned from Humans: Patience, love - and that NO MATTER WHAT - I am safe, loved and will always be loved and cared for. Oh yeah, and that I will always get my McDonalds hamburgers on Saturday with Dad.
Things My Owner Has Learned from Me: Unconditional love and that I'll always have an ear for them, and a wagging tail!
Favorite Trick: Sitting, laying down, and shaking paws.
Favorite Treat: Favorite treats??? Where do I begin? Let me count the treats...!
Make No Bones About It...I Am a Great Therapy Dog Because: I am a gentle soul with a great love of people (thanks to my parents) and because of all the love I have received, I can share and give it back to others....because that IS what life is all about!
