Personality: High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Sammy is a beautiful, loving Great Pyrenees. He is a great 'Farm Guardian Dog' with appropriate fencing - he will go under if that option is available. He has an incredible bark that has kept predators away from our farm, but he has lived in our back yard fencing rather than our livestock fencing the last year or so because he found ways out of the livestock fencing. This would be a fine situation for his whole life except that he attacked another of our dogs and bit his neck into his trachea. We have not been successful at helping the two get along and need to keep the English Setter contained in the back yard as he will kill our poultry. ... (Read More)Sammy used to stay on the farm of his own free will, but has also developed a habit of wandering, as GP are known to do, and in his case, usually to a main highway which could cause him harm or cause people harm in a car accident. He was hit by a car several years ago and had his hip broken. He is fully recovered from that, after two surgeries and lots of physical therapy. He is a loving affectionate dog, wonderful with children, loves being loved. He is very strong and does not like having the vet visit. He has never been aggressive towards a human, but he has been belligerent in terms of his strength stopping him from doing what he's supposed to do at times (getting into a car, sitting still in a car (he needs a seatbelt), being seen by the vet, for example). He walks on a lead. He gets along with all of our other dogs, male and female, large and small, of different ages. He has been in the house - he seems like a bit of a toddler, but has never made a 'bathroom mess'. I think he would love being a house dog if he got appropriate exercise. My best vision for Sammy is as a small scale farm guardian dog with appropriate fencing that includes access to the house and people, lots of love and affection, and forever. If you are looking for a one dog, large, family/farm dog, Sammy well be your dream dog. Adoption fee will be paid to Heart of Phoenix Equine Rescue. Sammy will stay home with us until he is placed.
