Well, I am sure there are bigger ones, but when he is in your house, all 140lbs of him, you might not think so.

Hogan is a beautiful, purebred Great Pyrenees.

He loves truck rides and jumps in...thank goodness, is great with other dogs, is good with cats but wants to play with them, which is pretty intimidating if you are a cat. He LOVES kids and strangers and true to his nature, wandering around outside, keeping tabs on things but he is also very happy to lay down inside and take a load off, and we hope you let him, because he is such a love.

Hogan came to us from a young man down on his luck. He was having to move and had only had Hogan for a few months, as an adoptee from our local shelter. They were too full to take him back and his options had run out.

Not gonna lie. When we pulled up to the house and saw the size of this guy, we nearly kept going but we are glad we didn't. He is such a sweet, calm, gentle and loving boy. He is also, all Pyrenees, which means his hearing can be a bit selective, unless it is sparrows fighting in the arborvitae or coyotes on the hill, and he is never in a hurry to do anything. Inside the home, his favorite place is the center of the room, so he doesn't miss anything, or in front of the most used door, again, to make sure he misses nothing and outside, he will post up by the most frequently used gate or the spot with the best view, which could be your glass top patio table, if it's sturdy enough.

Hogan is housebroken, if you loosely define the term. If let out regularly he is a good boy but if you wait too long... well, let's just say....don't wait too long.

He stays quietly in a crate (you are going to need the 54" long or bigger) but it is not his favorite place. He will not whine and fuss but if left too long (more than three hours, the confinement makes him uncomfortable and that leads to lupset tummy and crate soiling. So far and unlike his breed brothers and sisters, hehas not shown a propensity for barking unnecessarily but will let you know if there is something odd or unknown or just weird, lurking about. Coyote song, really gets him worked up and I would not want to be a coyote, if he was after them. The smaller dogs in the foster home where he lives, are somewhat terrified of him and steer clear but he tolerates the annoying puppy well, and lets him pal around with him, when he gets too annoying for the other dogs. Hogan is also really good on a leash. No pull but, again, true to his nature, never in much of a hurry. He can easily clear a six foot fence and will, if he is left alone for too long, but if you give him friends, he is more inclined to stay put We makes no promises on that though. If your neighbors have goats or sheep, he may ditch you, to go find work at their place.

All in all, this is a really nice dog with the genetics inherent in this breed, firmly intact. A big secure yard or fenced pasture, will be necessary to keep him home and happy. He loves with his whole heart and everything he does, is supersized, which includes, poos, holes in the yard and shedding. We are not trying to discourage anybody from adopting him with this info. We just do not want there to be any misconceptions of what a dog this size, brings to the table by way of responsibility and care.

Hogan is neutered, up to date on five way and rabies vaccinations, has been fecal checked and treated for intestinal parasites, is flea free and microchipped and ready to be your new, very big and very hairy, best friend.
