|Rescue Me ID: 15-08-10-00282Purnima (female)|
Great Pyrenees Mix Age: Young Adult
|Compatibility:|| Good with Most Cats, Good with Kids and Adults |
|Personality:|| High Energy, Very Dominant |
|Health:|| Spayed, Vaccinations Current | AVAILABLE FOR ADOPTION - Livestock Guardian Dog: This is Purnima, a beautiful, 2 year old female. She is listed as a Pyrenees, but her demeanor and behavior demonstrate that she is an Akbash. Unlike the Pyrenees, she does not drool, has no odor, and she has more energy (should decrease as she is only 2 years old). She has spent 4 months in her current home and is now needing a place where she has a job. Her perfect environment would be a place where she can guard and herd sheep or cattle, but would also be successful in a home that can give her several hours of intense exercise daily. Since spending 4 months in her current location, she has ... (Read More)demonstrated no aggressive behavior toward cats and has had positive experiences playing with other dogs (as long as it's not on her property-she is a fierce guard dog). Endearing Traits - Nima loves bananas and berries. She also enjoys zucchini and cucumbers. She can be found gently pulling these treats from the plants in the garden. She enjoys rides on the back of the 4-wheeler and is also content to jog along side. If a car door opens, she hops in. She loves to ride. She has an independent nature, so when she is not feeling the need to exercise or work, you may find her relaxing or strolling wherever she wants. If she's content in her activities, she will pretend she does not know her name. However, she will always 'listen up' for a treat. The word 'kitty, kitty' means treat to her-we aren't sure why, but she will come running to 'kitty, kitty.' Purnima is softer than a bunny. She is lovely to pet and has NO odor. Somehow, her beautiful white fur is dirt repellent. She can get dusty or muddy and within an hour, her coat is beautiful white again. Anytime, I have been outside working at the farm, she stays beside me keeping guard. Challenges - Nima needs to work. She must be constantly supervised to manage her need to herd. She will sneak up on anyone and nip their behind. She is difficult to correct because of her speed and consistently attempts to be the alpha in any relationship. She is very bored right now and the best placement for her is with an experienced LGD owner who can give her a job. If you have a farm or ranch and need an amazing guard dog, Purnima is your girl! Apply to adopt her at www.saintrescue.org. Purnima is spayed, up to date on her shots, microchipped and heartworm tested. (Less) Adoption Fee: 300 Animal Location:
