From Cyndi of Mill Creek, WA

We found George the day before we were going to Yakima to see another dog. He was a Turkish Akbash and Great Pyrenees mix. He seemed like he would be a god dog to take a look at, and he was also in Yakima! So with a little persuasion of my husband, we set up an appointment to go meet him. We met him first, when we got into the room with him he was a little bigger than we expected from a 4 1/2 month old. But he was very laid back for his age, he looked at us and sniffed us for a second then laid down and fell asleep. Even when we brought our other dog in and a small dog tried to attack her, he still slept on. After we met the other dog we went to lunch and decided on which one we would get, the other dog liked to mark his territory everywhere even if he didn't have anything to mark with. So we chose George. As we have had him for 5 1/2 months now he has grown a unique personality. He keeps our old Catahoula going, and we have even seen some improvements in her health due to his interaction with her. We could of never asked for a better puppy, he came to us just in time for a loss in our family but he helped us through it. Our family has always wanted a big, fluffy and cuddly dog, but we never expected for it to come in one package. We are learning new things about George everyday. We hope that when our other dog passes on he will continue to be our funny, floppy Georgie.
