Make America….Love Great Pyrenees.
Ha. Enough politics. Let’s talk about something near and dear to my heart. Great Pyrenees. The majestic beasts that walk among us. The fairytale dragons. The “Look how fluffy” or “That’s a huge dog” commentary I hear everywhere I go. The family polar bear.
So on Labor Day weekend, someone had found this dog. I saw the posting, was like Yippee, but was busy and to be honest forgot. I figured this dog just got out per Great Prys nature to wander off being the stubborn dogs they are bred to be. Then came Tuesday and someone else posted about finding this dog. This ain’t your normal dog you find in Chi-town just walking around. Maybe out in the farm life. Or maybe in your dreams. However, that’s how I ended up with my own Great Pry, Letty Girl, but that’s a whole other story I am happy to tell anyone about. The racist old knuckle-brain. Not today though. Today is Mulligan’s story.
Mulligan was found at one home and apparently let loose to be found by another. Well it’s not how we like to do it here at LEAD, so Jared happily scooped him up and to CACC he went to do his 3 day stray hold. I mean the dog had been out for at least 5 days prior and no owner. But this was his legal chance of getting returned. Well surprise, surprise. Mulligan is ours. Well not mine. I seriously don’t need another floofer in my life.
So what’s the low down, the 411 about Mulligan. I say this striking, handsome, devil, son of a gun youngster is about 11 months to a year old. He certainly seemed like he was an outside dog as he tried to claw his way out of the foster’s home. However, we struck down those efforts with a crate and we praise the Lord Jesus Christ he doesn’t chew his way out of it. It’s been good so far. Until I freaking say this I bet.
Mulligan is sweet to dogs (actually was afraid when he met my 6) and scared of cats. Better than, “MMM…cats.” He also is good with kids and people. Right now, I will say that Mulligan isn’t super affectionate. He kinda doesn’t know what to do with you. That being said and for any GP adopter or owner to know, is that GPs can not be left off leash. He’ll be like, “Bye” without even thinking about all the love you gave him. He does mark (squats), that’s why I know this dog is a baby, but they are tiny puddles. But he does not have accidents in the crate. He also does not bark really except when his foster brother does, so more of an alarm barker. Ideally, I’d love Mulligan to go to a home that has a nice, fenced in yard. Great Prys are extremely sweet, but will bark at people they are unsure about. City life isn’t always the best for these flock-guarding breed. He hasn’t shown interest in being protective yet and I don’t know if the goof himself ever will. But there’s no guarantee. I just know my own GP knows when to put on a show and when to tone it down for kids and appropriate people. Oh and he loves to stand on his hind legs to show you how much bigger he actually is. He’ll probably top out at 107.8 lbs. I just made that up.
Mulligan in summary, is a ball of fun. Puppy-teen like and awkward. And honestly will mess up all your clothes with excessive drool and hair. Mully will be neutered, vaccinated, and chipped before adoption of course. If you are interested, please apply on our adoption application.
