Can you imagine what it feels like to be dumped? To have a family one moment, and the next be trying to see through the dust as they drive away? It is such a surreal moment. Almost too hard to comprehend. Had I known what was to come, I would have tried so hard not to get in that car. Maybe then I would have never been dumped. I just do not get how they could do this to me. After something like this, you think the horror is over. Now you just wander until someone falls in love and keeps you. That is not part of my story though...at least not yet. I ended up finding a family, and I was so excited to finally have human companionship. However, they were not dog people. When I chewed some of their stuff up, they threatened to shoot me if someone didn't take me ASAP. I am just a puppy, how was I to know chewing up things is a death sentence?
Thankfully, some amazing people caught wind of this and posted for rescue help. When this rescue saw me, they knew that they would be the family I never had. They would love me, get me all vetted up, and spoil me until my forever family comes around to pick up where they left off.
My name is North and I am an 8-month-old, 50lb male Great Pyrenees/Anatolian mix. Given my size, we are thinking that I may also have a little Aussie mixed in. I don't believe that I will be getting much bigger than what I am now.
The thing about adopting is you should not do it unless you are absolutely ready. That means you can commit to me for the rest of my life. I am going to be so loyal to my family, and I ask the same in return!
To help make the decision process easier, I had my foster family fill out this questionnaire for me!
-How does your foster act when meeting new people?
North LOVES people! He is a hugger, but he is gentle about it. Plus, how can he give you kisses if he isn't hugging you ;)
-Has your foster been to any public settings?
North has been to the vet and did great. He was well behaved, other than wanting to give hugs and lovings to everyone.
-Does your foster like going on walks?
North has not been on any walks. He LOVES being with his people, so I figure he would be happy as long as his people are with him.
-Do you think your foster would enjoy going on hikes?
If it is a family affair, he would probably love it. North is up for doing just about anything that you do.
-Is your foster leash trained?
For the most part. He walks beside you, but does like switching sides so could use some more working with.
-How does your foster do on car rides?
North is nervous to get in but eventually does with some coaxing. Once in, he rides well. You can tell her is unsure and never really relaxes but usually sits up and looks out the window. Occasionally, he may try to ride shotgun so should be buckled in.
-Does your foster jump on people?
Yes. It is a gentle jump, but right now he wants to do it whenever he hasn't seen you for a bit or is meeting someone new. We are working on this with him.
Given how incredibly soft and cuddly he is, sometimes you just have to give in and wrap your arms around him and just have a cuddle session with him instead of telling him to get down ?
-Describe your foster dog's energy level?
North matches the energy level of the home. If everything is calm, he is also calm. If there is a lot of excitement, he is more active.
-Is your foster a big chewer?
Yes and No. North is great when someone is home with him, even at night. However, when his foster family is gone he tries to get into things and will chew them up. Such as shoes, books, etc.
-Does your foster like to play fetch?
-Does your foster like to play in the
-Does your foster play with Toys?
YES! North loves all toys, but he especially loves nylabones, pig/cow hooves, and antlers.
-Does your foster have food aggression?
-Does your foster resource guard?
-Do you think your foster would be okay with free-roam of the house even if you are away?
No. North can be destructive when left alone. He has NOT chewed on any furniture, but no matter how well the house is puppy-proofed he will manage to find something to chew on...even though he has toys scattered everywhere.
-Is your foster potty trained?
-Is your foster kennel trained?
-Where does your foster stay when no one is home?
We tried free-roam, but the little sneak still managed to find things to chew on. So, now he comes to work with his foster mom.
-Where does your foster sleep at night?
Free roam - his favorite place is to sleep in front of the front door. However, he recently has started coming to bed with his foster family and likes to sleep under their bed.
-Would your foster dog do good in an apartment?
It is hard to say. He may do great if exercised enough, but if someone worked a lot I fear he may grow restless.
-Is your foster a big barker?
He barks rarely. Mostly if he's inside and hears something outside.
-Is your foster good with other dogs?
-How does your foster act around other dogs?
Playful. When North meets a new dog, he has a few minutes of nervousness. Afterward, he is trying to get the dog to play with him. Once the excitement has died down, he is pretty chill though.
He currently lives with two cocker spaniels. They are not big players, so North is pretty good about respecting that. However, he is so excited when they do start to engage in play with him. I think he would love having a playmate his size.
-Does your foster need another dog in his new home?
If his family was a home a lot he would do fine as an only dog. He would be an amazing dog to take pretty much everywhere with you. However, if his family worked a lot, he would 100% need another dog in the home. He may be on the more chill side, but he is still a puppy and needs a good avenue to get his energy out.
-Is your foster good with cats?
-Is your foster good with kids?
He is not being fostered around any.
-What would be your foster's ideal home?
North would love a family that is home a lot. If they also had another playful dog, that would be the cherry on top! North is just about perfect, other than his act for finding things when you are gone...even though you could have sworn everything was out of reach ? I think he would fit into just about any family as long as they had lots of love and time to give to him!
-What else can you tell me about your foster?
North is about 8 months old and is one of the best puppies! He has been potty trained since day one, and is the absolute sweetest boy ever! He does wonderful with free-roam when someone is home. While he cannot be left with free-roam if you are gone, that may change if he had another dog his size to play with. The two Cocker Spaniels that he is fostered with probably are not much entertainment for him. North is by far one of the cuddliest dogs you will ever meet, and is so soft! North is really good about matching the energy of the room. As I am writing this, he is passed out next to my computer desk. However, when it is time to go outside he is doing popcorn jumps and ready to play.
Now that you know everything there is to know about me, it is time to talk logistics!
-How can someone adopt me?
The first step is to fill out an adoption app for me at https://www.pyrpawsandfluffytailsrescue.com/adoption-app
Once this app comes in, it will get sent on to my foster family and they will help me decide if we are a match or not.
-Where are you being fostered?
I am being fostered in Tulsa, OK
-Would I need to come to pick you up?
Yes, you would need to pick me up. This rescue does not send us on transports. It is less stress on us that way. Plus, you and I can already start bonding on the road trip home! ?
-Can I adopt you even though I don't live in Oklahoma?
Yep, I am not opposed to living in another state!
-How much is your adoption fee?
My adoption fee is $225.
That includes 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.
