Meet Pecan Sandie
Pecan Sandie is more of a calm/laid-back kinda girl. Her energy level will match that of her family. This makes her just about perfect for any family considering welcoming her to their family! Below you will find what her foster has to say about her
"Pecan Sandie is so sweet! She loves to roll over onto her back for tummy pets, and we can see her watching movies and cuddling her new family on the couch, and snuggling her family on the bed on Saturday mornings. Pecan Sandie has the most beautiful gold eyes. Her gold coat is on the shorter side. She has dewclaws on her back legs and the prettiest pink nose! She is not an in-your-face high-energy type dog but can be more on the shy side. She gets along great with all of the other dogs in her foster home. Her ideal family will be patient with her. She hasn't had very much experience with people prior to PPFT. She will be a very loving family dog."
Pecan Sandie has had quite the journey. She was born on a property where the owners didn't do much with her. As her litter grew, they started roaming and going to the neighbor's property. The neighbors did not appreciate that and threatened to shoot her and her siblings. The owner ended up reaching out for help in placing these guys. We ended up taking 5 of her siblings. Pecan Sandie and 5 of her littermates were still on the property while we searched for foster homes for them. Shortly after pulling the original 5(Elvira, Mistress of the Bark, Beowolf, Peanut Butter, Clair, and Brownie) they all came down with parvo and had to be rushed to the vet.
It turns out that the other 6 puppies, including Pecan Sandie, that were still on the property were also sick with Parvo. We had begged the owner to take the other puppies to the vet, and we would figure out things from there. They refused and three puppies ended up losing their life. Thankfully with the help of OAA and some amazing volunteers, we were able to get them off the property and to the vet. Once they recovered we welcomed Pecan Sandie, Hot Fudge Sundae, and Reggie to our fluffy butt family. This rescue took a village, and we are so thankful to OAA for assisting with the puppies, to the amazing lady who alerted us to the pups in need, and to all our vets and fosters that helped nurse these guys back to health!
Pecan Sandie is a 6-month-old female Great Pyrenees/Shepherd mix. She currently weighs about 43lbs. We expect her to top out in the 70lb range once she is fully grown.
??To Pecan Sandie's Future Family??
? Pecan Sandie does GREAT on car rides. She will hop right in and then lay down a take a nap. Pecan Sandie is the shyest dog in her litter. She enjoys sniffing but would like a family who can be patient with her. We've had to pick her up and carry her into the house/ vet office several times. She is just a little unsure about new situations. We think she will get more comfortable with walking on a leash, with time. Her ideal family would be patient with her and take her on lots of outings, so she can practice meeting new people. She loves spending time with her foster family. She is still figuring out that new people/places aren't scary. When she meets new people, she wags her tail excitedly but may hesitate or even lay down. Pecan Sandie does not jump on people.
? Pecan Sandie is a very smart girl. She has wonderful house manners. She is both potty and kennel trained. Pecan Sandie has not shown to be a big chewer in her foster home, she tends to stick with her toys. When no one is home, Pecan stays in her crate. While she is currently kenneled when her fosters are away, they feel she would do fine with free-roam. She would probably lay on something soft and take a nap when her family was away.
?Pecan Sandie is learning how to play and what toys are. Pecan enjoys chewing on nylabones, oinkies, and kong toys. She also loves to play with stuffed toys. She especially likes to carry them all around the yard! Sandie will chase tennis balls. But doesn't necessarily pick them up or bring them back. We think she can learn to play fetch, she just hasn't had much opportunity to play with people prior to PPFT. Pecan Sandie does great in the bathtub. She is nervous, so she does tend to lay down, but she enjoys the attention when getting shampooed, and she LOVES to be towel dried!
Pecan Sandie does not seem to have any resource or food aggression issues.
?Given her personality, we believe that Pecan Sandie would do fine in an apartment setting. She has not shown to be a big barker in her foster home. All this girl wants is to love and be loved. She may be unsure upon first entering her home, but once she feels safe you will not find a more loving and sweet dog than her!
?Pecan Sandie is being fostered around other dogs. She is not being fostered with any kids or cats. Sandie enjoys the companionship of other dogs. She is more on the reserved side (not a super active girl) but she enjoys following her littermates as they chase squirrels. While she is not being fostered around any cats, we figure she would do fine with proper introduction. We think Pecan would do great with kids, as long as they are a little older and are dog savvy. She would get a little scared around super loud/ active kids. Pecan would make a great reading buddy.
?? Adopting Pecan Sandie ??
Pecan Sandie's ideal home would either have another confident dog who can show her the ropes, or a family who will be home most of the day. She has had a rough start and spent most of her life without a family, so she is ready to be a snuggle bug! She is more on the laid-back/ calm side, but she may start to get more active as she starts feeling better (she felt pretty crummy when she was sick with Parvo!).
?Pecan Sandie will be ready to go home around June 18th. Her new family should plan on bringing her home around that time. ?
Pecan Sandie is being fostered in Tulsa, OK. Her new family needs to be able to pick her up(even if they are out of state). No commercial transports and no shipping. Just a fun road trip with her and her new family! ?
Her adoption fee is $225. That includes DHLPP, Rabies, and Bordatella shots. She will be micro-chipped, heart-worm tested, have a fecal done, be de-wormed, be spayed/neutered, and will be current on heart-worm and flea/tick prevention. It will also include her heart-worm treatment.
