Rescue Me ID: 15-04-02-00552LT (Lady Thinderbird) (female)

Great Pyrenees Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    LT (Lady Thunderbird) has been with us for 4 years. We have 5 dogs and she and another dog of ours have developed a 'pack mentality' towards our small dog (Manchester Terrier). She was never like this before the introduction of the 5th dog, which is gone now, but the 5th dog was a therapy dog that needs to be replaced. We are worried LT could fall back into this behavior with a new dog again. We have tried several trainers, opinions and advise from numerous dog 'experts', and many types of discipline to no avail. She has a very sweet disposition and is an outstanding guard dog. She barks at anyone who is not familiar, yet she does ... (Read More)not bite (just intimidating). This includes UPS, FedEx, and anyone else that isn't a daily visitor. She does not bark at us, the farm hand, or neighbors since she's grown to know them. She is good around horses and llamas. She has only been around barn cats which stay out of the yard. She doesn't have any medical problems on the list. She does have a prolapsed eyelid that she's had since birth. We considered getting it fixed, but the vet said it could result in chronic dry eyes. It does not seem to both her at all. We don't want to take her to a shelter where she will be in a pen. She loves to have her ears scratched, but she isn't a lap dog. She likes to position herself where she can see and hear. Typical Pyrenees behavior. Hoping someone will give her a great home where she can live out her years. Please contact Tom at or 719-207-1511. We don't have great reception, so leave a message if I don't answer and I'll call you back. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 14-12-08-00479Snow (female)

Great Pyrenees Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    This is Snow, a Great Pyrenees/ Anatolian shepherd mix rescued from a high-kill shelter in Louisiana. She was a stray picked up by Animal Control and left unclaimed at the shelter. Snow is 1- 1 1/2 years old, 80# and still gaining, and just the best, most lovable giant puppy girl. She is fully vetted and spayed, heartworn negative, on preventative. Snow loves to spend part of the day outside playing with the other dogs, chasing squirrels, and patrolling our large back yard. She loves to come inside and cuddle on the couch or bed, but she does sleep on her own bed. She is doing very well with housetraining when put outside frequently. She has ... (Read More)not demonstrated any destructive behaviors (except a couple holes dug), loves bones and large rawhide-type chews. We are looking for a family with a large property and possibly some animals for Snow to protect. We do not want her to be put in the backyard by herself to get bored and develop bad habits...she is a young girl with much love and wants to be part of a family or have a job during the day and family at night. She is good on a leash, has pretty good indoor manners, although she does counter surf and sometimes doesn't realize how big she is. She is smart and wants to please and is very endearing, easy to teach. There will be a $200 adoption fee to cover her fees and vetting. If you are seriously interested in adopting this happy large girl, please email me all your information regarding home/property situation, household, other pets, schedules, and anything else that will help me understand what life will be like for Snow if she becomes part of your family. Please mail me this information with any questions you may have about Snow. I am in Louisiana, but will be willing to transport Snow to Arkansas. (Less)
