Meet Benson, he is a 7 month old, 68 pound, Great Pyrenees puppy looking for his forever home. Benson is a typical puppy and he is a big love. Benson came into rescue after being hit by a car and left for dead. Benson had surgery on his back hind leg and he gets along well, but he sometimes needs to be made to slow down so he does not over strain his hind leg. This dog should not go to a home with people dreaming of climbing mountains with their dog. That is not in the cards for this guy, but he will live a normal life otherwise.
Benson enjoys the company of other dogs, he's unsure of cats, and he loves his people. While best with no small children, older sturdy kids are fine. He will also need a home where the yard is physically fenced, adopters need to have an in depth knowledge of the breed and their traits, or have had a Great Pyrenees in the past. This is not a starter dog for those considering getting one. Interested adopters should fill out the application

All known information about an individual dog is provided in its listing. We do our best to provide accurate information, but adopters should understand that each home is different and the dog may behave differently in a new home. Dogs are creatures of their environment and you help make the dog what it will be. Homes considering adopting a puppy must be prepared for 1.) Flexible schedules for potty training. Puppies can only hold it for one hour per month of age (i.e. a 4-month-old puppy can only go 4 hours without a potty break). 2.) Crate training until the puppy is at least one year old to prevent chewing on inappropriate things when you can't supervise. 3.) Socialization. The more positive and varying experiences as a puppy the better, both in and out of your home. 4.) Puppy behavior and life stages are equivalent to a human toddler. It takes at least a full year to have a calmer, well-adjusted dog. Patience is required and when your dog's behavior is a positive experience for you and those around you, your patience will be rewarded ten-fold, for years to come. Please do not consider adopting a puppy if you have not thoroughly thought through the pros and cons of having one. So many people end up returning them after 3-5 months because they didn't realize the amount of work involved in raising a puppy. Patience, appropriate toys, socialization, and obedience training are all musts. All are time-consuming and can be expensive. All dogs require supervision with children and obedience training. Adopters that want to have good dogs must be prepared to put the time and effort into training a dog. Any dog requires work and effort, but a well trained, well-socialized dog is more than worth the effort to get them there.
