Great Pyrenees Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults

Health: Needs to be Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    I am fostering Sally, she is good with dogs, kids and humans. Very friendly, on the small side of St. Bernard. I am 80 years old and cannot afford the cost of feeding 3 dogs on a limited budget. Would love to see her go to a home with children who would play with her. Her owner sadly has moved into an apartment and is not able to take her back. She has a very sweet personality and loves to play and run. She is also very smart and learns quickly. Please share, transportation to a reasonable distant can be arranged.
