Peru Summary:
Peru is an 8-week-old female Great Pyrenees/Golden Retriever mix. Peru likes to eat crushed ice from a bowl and will take off running when she hears the ice machine working. Peru likes to sleep on a variety of doggy beds, the floor, and loves to nap underneath a chaise lounge with only her feet sticking out from the side. Peru likes to have belly rubs, give kisses, be held for short periods of time, and cuddle. Peru is just a doll baby that loves to be around you, be busy, unless it is naptime, and explore her surroundings.

Peru, would probably like a house with another dog in it to play with, to burn off energy, and to lounge with throughout the day. I think older kids would be something that would be of great interest to her so she would have a companion to play with, cuddle with, and bond with during her life.
She would not like to be left alone too much of the time since she is very social.

Peru has already had the misfortune of being abandoned and left to fend for herself. She was then picked up along with her sibling's Glaze, Butter, and Shiro and brought to the animal shelter. The shelter is no place for puppies, they are at risk for so many different types of diseases. When our volunteer caught wind of them, we jumped into action and with the help of their amazing foster families were able to pull them.

Peru lives life to the fullest! She spends her days playing her heart out and then crashing. Once she has had a power nap she is ready to get back to playing, she is just so full of life and seems to bring a little sunshine wherever she goes. Peru loves to play in the yard and will happily give chase to sticks and toys that are thrown. However, she is still learning the concept of fetch and hasn't learned to bring the item back yet. Peru is a big fan of toys and will happily play with ALL the toys. Bones, soft toys, squeaky toys, hard toys, and the list goes on! If the toy is bigger than she worries! She will still drag it across the room with her. She makes it her job to make sure that no toy is left out! Peru didn't seem to mind the rain but doesn't seem interested in playing in the sprinkler. So, it is hard to say at this point if she will enjoy playing in the water or not. Peru will probably make an amazing walking partner one day...but today is not that day. She is still too young to go on walks and isn't leash trained yet. Her foster family is introducing her to the leash, but her new family is going to have the brunt of the work teaching her what it is and proper manners when on it. Peru may be up for going on hikes once she is older and leash trained but we cannot say for sure yet. Peru doesn't have much experience with car rides yet but so far she seems like she does well on them.

Peru from the start was going up to the bigger dogs without any fear, just wanted to get to know everyone. She plays hard with her "twin" but not as "fierce" as her sister is during playtime. She loves to give kisses to her older brothers and sister in the house. She is not being fostered around cats so while we feel she would be okay with them, we cannot say for sure. She was around an older child during transport and did fine. She is still a puppy, so sharp teeth and nails, but she is not an aggressive nibbler or chewer on people at this point. She does play rough with her sister. Peru has been very welcoming to visitors coming over and is very open to their pets and interaction. While Peru is excited to meet new people, she has good manners and doesn't jump. Her preference is to run up to people and then roll over on her back for belly rubs.

Peru is working on potty training. She does really well most of the time, but is still a baby so sometimes doesn't empty it enough before she comes back inside..because she was too busy playing. Ru Ru eats in a crate or playpen and does fine, but has not been crated for any length of time. Peru has not been a big chewer so far. She mainly sticks to her toys but if something is left out and lying around where she can get it...she may grab it. Ru Ru sleeps in a playpen at the side of our bed at night with her sister for now. As of yet, there has only been a rare bark heard from Peru and it only lasted a short, few barks. She is still young though so that may still change later on. At her size right now, an apartment would be okay as long as she had lots of room to zoom around it and play.

Have you fallen in love with miss Peru? Do you feel that she belongs with your family? If so, then you can apply to adopt her at

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

She is being fostered in Oklahoma City, OK. While we do adopt out of state, you would be responsible for picking your new dog up. We do not send our dogs on transport. This way you and your new fur baby can already begin the bonding process on the way back home, and it limits the stress on the dog.

Her adoption fee is $300.

That will include two sets of puppy shots and wormings. She will also have had a bordetella. She 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
