Meet Takaani (was Carlos)

You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website.Tikaani is a very special boy - he came to us at GPRM but went straight to the wonderful fosters who have worked with him from day one. He has made remarkable progress - but he still has more to learn and will only be adopted to a very Pyr savvy adopter willing to put in the time and effort. This is what the foster mom says:

Tikaani (Kaani) is an almost 4-year-old "pocket pyr" at only 80 pounds, but he makes up for his lack of size with his extra-large personality. He is very in tune with his people, extremely intelligent, and needs to be challenged.

Tikaani had a very rough start to life, and will require and deserves an extra special home. He came in to rescue at only 8 months old, and we were given little to no information about what to expect. We immediately found out he is extremely nervous around new people, and it takes a lot of time and patience to earn his trust.

He bonds hard to the people he trusts, and like a typical pyr, he can be very protective. He does not like new people in the home, but he does warm up after frequent, repeat visits-and very slow introductions. He has the most expressive, captivating eyes, and if you pay attention, you can always tell what he needs.

His front right leg is shorter than the others due to previous mistreatment. He has been through testing and therapy and it doesn't seem to cause him any pain, but it is a constant, visual reminder of why he fears humans.

He loves car rides, walks, puzzle toys, and spending time with his humans. Kaani is a goofy, playful, silly boy who never fails to make me laugh. He likes to "jaw snap" (make a barking motion without any noise) when he's excited or just wants to talk back-we often have conversations back and forth. While he's not much of a snuggler, he always likes to be close and makes me feel so incredibly loved. I've spent time with a lot of dogs over the years, and none have given me the sweet, devoted feeling he does.

Tikaani requires an experienced pyr owner with a lot of patience, love, and understanding. His ideal home would be a quiet home with no children, few visitors, and with adults who can meet him where he is and work at his pace. He's the pyrfect dog for any introvert! He would do best with a female dog around the same age, and he is great with cats/kittens. 11/29/23 2:18 PM
