Clovis's Story
-Written by Clovis, a 13-month-old, 80lb male Great Pyrenees/Aussie mix.

I was just a puppy when I first ended up in rescue. I was part of an "oops" litter and my owner needed help placing me and my siblings. You may remember us, we were cute as heck! My siblings' names were Fern, Wolfie, Cowboy, Marigold, Latte, and Carmella. It didn't take us long to find our families and get adopted. I was so excited to have a family of my very own! When I was first adopted, I thought we would last forever. The kids and I played all day long, and life was great. I was where I was supposed to be.

As I got older, things started to change though. I enjoyed the kids in my home but I wasn't a fan of the neighborhood kids. I was comfortable with my kids but I didn't really know those kids and wasn't prepared to be their playmates too. As time went on, they kept testing my patience and finally, I started growling to try to keep them away. That was a big concern for my family since kids were often coming over often and they decided it would be best to surrender me back to the rescue. Our goodbye was probably one of the hardest things ever. The kids all gave me a big hug and then climbed back in the car, and while I was watching them my former mom gave me a big ole hug and a kiss on the nose. I knew that they were going to let me go already, but when the goodbye actually was so hard. It felt like the door was closing on the last year of my life...and to be honest it was. I can never go back. So, just like that my family was gone. Just like that...everything that I had ever known came crashing down. I was once again homeless. I was once again left without a family. It sucked. I know very well that sometimes it is simply not a fit but we were family. So, it doesn't make it any easier having to be passed around once more.

The thing about change though, is it is not always bad. It hurts like hell. However, I landed in an amazing foster home that has no expectations of me. I don't have to be on my best behavior when kids come over...because there are none. In fact, I am probably the sweetest guy ever. I love people and animals alike and have such a good personality. I am laid-back with a dash of playfulness. I love being close to my foster mom while she is working and often lie under her computer desk. At night, I love sleeping in the bedroom with her on my doggie bed. When I get bored, I love playing with toys. Especially, squeaky toys! Other times I will engage in play with the other dogs. I love to go outside and romp around...but only for a little bit. I don't want to be outside very long if you are not out there. If you don't let me in soon enough, be prepared to hear me jumping up on the door(it is my version of knocking ;) ). I have not been on any walks in my foster home since they have a big backyard. However, I have gone to work with my foster mom a few times and did great on the leash. When I meet new people, I initially stay very close to my foster mom. With some coaxing, I do end up going over to say hi, and then out of nowhere...I DROP....and roll over on my back for belly rubs. Ohhhhhh, how I love belly rubs.

I have good house manners and am potty trained. My foster doesn't kennel me, so I have free roam of the house when she is away. I do very well and am not destructive. Now, I am still young so I still recommend keeping things put up so I don't get tempted. I am not a barker, and so far my foster has no idea what my bark sounds like. However, I can be vocal. I will whine when I am nervous or in new situations. I will also whine when I am ready for you to get out of bed or want attention. I may not be able to talk, but there are other ways to get your attention and try to communicate what I want..and for me, that is whining. I don't do it as much now that I am settled into my foster home, but I still do it so my new family needs to be okay with a more vocal dog. I do believe that I would be fine in an apartment setting. I seem to have wonderful manners on the leash and am a pretty chill guy. With that said, I will still need a more active family and someone that can take me on lots of walks. I may not be energetic but I am still young and could not handle just lying around all day.

I am good with other dogs. I am sometimes playful with them and sometimes indifferent to them. I am good with cats, however, they need to be dog savvy. If they are constantly running around like they are possessed I do get curious and will give chase and whine when they go somewhere that I cannot get to. Now that the cats in my foster home know me, they don't do anything crazy or attention-grabbing so they no longer interest me. Despite, what happened in my last home I do think I would do just fine with older kids. The main issue in my last home was not MY kids, but other kids. So, if my new home had older children that know boundaries and friends that know how to respect boundaries I don't foresee an issue.

If you would have told me a year ago that I would be back in rescue...I would have laughed at you. I was so sure of my last family, but alas it wasn't meant to be. Leaving them behind was so incredibly hard for me. I never ever want to go through heartbreak like that again. I want someone who is going to stand by my side for forever. A want to be someone's forever...not someone's until. If you are my forever, then please apply to adopt me at

Once you have submitted your application, it will be sent on to my foster family for consideration.

I am currently residing in Tulsa, OK. I have absolutely no reservations about the car and will hope right in. Once inside, I will look out the window for a bit before settling down on the seat and taking a nap. If you live in another state, please don't worry about me and the road trip. I would do amazing on the way back home...just saying ;)

My adoption fee is $250.
That will include my DHLPP, Rabies, and Bordetella. I will be micro-chipped, have a fecal done, be de-wormed, be spayed/neutered, and will be current on heart-worm and flea/tick prevention
