Tinker is a very sweet and well-behaved dog! She’s a bit shy around new people but opens up quickly! She spends most of her time sleeping on the couch and asking for pets! She’s very affectionate once she’s comfortable around you! She is sensitive to loud noises and scares
easily. Talking and laughing loud she’s okay with noises like a ladder being opened, metal clanking, loud stomping ect. scare her. She also can be nervous going through doorways. She will go through them but looks around and is hesitant. She’s gotten much much better about it and is starting to walk through them with very little hesitation! :) Tinker is very calm, lazy, and just a huge couch potato! The most energetic she gets is when we come home and is just so
happy to see us! She hasn’t shown any interest in other dogs and tends to just ignore them. If they try playing with her she just walks away. Tinker has been such a wonderful houseguest and is such a wonderful companion!

Tinker will need a patient family. She is shy at first and takes some time to warm up to everyone...including the other dogs for the first few days. As long as her new family and other dogs give her the space she needs, it doesn't take long for her to start warming up and realizing that this is her new family. Once she feels at home, expect cuddles galore from this sweetheart. Tinker's ideal would be a calm home, with dogs who don’t expect her to play with them. Other dogs have tried playing with her and she just walks away lol. The previous owner said when she was completely alone with no dogs she became destructive. She hasn’t been destructive in our home but I can see her having separation anxiety for sure. Not sure how accurate it is but better safe than sorry!

It is crazy to think that at one time, I didn't have any of this. I used to be a stray. I used to have to go days with little to no food. I didn't have any people around to love on me and tell me how pretty I am. I didn't have anyone around to help manage my beautiful coat. I spent my nights just hoping to make it to morning. I have no idea when I ended up as a stray, but I know that it was a big part of my past.

I don't know for just how long as a stray, but I do remember the day I could stop. Stop wandering aimlessly. Stop being hungry. Stop feeling so alone. I ended up wandering up to a nice lady's house and she took me in. I was so excited to finally find a place that didn't try shooing me away or shooting at me. As I would soon find out, this wasn't my forever home though. My finder was not able to take on another dog long term and reached out to this rescue for help. There are so many dogs in need, and only so many foster families are available. I ended up being on their waiting list since September 2022. Recently, a foster family came open and chose me! I could not believe it when my finder told me that a spot opened up in this rescue....and that I would be embarking on a totally new adventure.

I am probably one of the most sweet and most loving dogs you will ever meet. I am on the calmer side and am perfectly content to just snooze on the couch all day. That is why it is hard to believe that people keep passing me around. I was recently adopted not too long ago and wasn't even with that family for a full three days before they returned me. I was still feeling nervous and out of sorts in the home and would sometimes get on to the other dog in the home. My adopter wasn't willing to work through this and returned me. I was so confused that when I ended up back in my foster home I didn't want any of the dogs I once called friends near me. After a few hours, I started to remember and now do amazing with all of them again.
Then, another family saw that I was back up for adoption and scooped me up. I guess they expected me to bond to them right away though, and that isn't how I work. It takes time for me to trust, especially because I have been passed around a bit. So, when they opened the door when we got home...they didn't secure me and I took off running. I was SO SCARED. I had no idea where I was and wouldn't let my new family get close. My foster mom ended up driving almost two hours to help find me...and that is when my adopters said they didn't want me anymore. I hadn't even set a paw in the house yet, but they had decided that I didn't like them and it wasn't going to work.

Thankfully, I jumped right in my foster mom's car when I saw her and am now back safe in my foster home. I am a 2-3-year-old, 65lb female Great Pyrenees mix. I am good with other dogs and enjoy their companionship. However, I am not really a player. I like knowing they are there, but if they try to play with me I will often just walk away from them. I am not currently being fostered around cats, but the previous home I was in had cats and I was very gentle and sweet with them. I am good with kids and am gentle with them. I do believe that I would do well with kids of all ages as long as they knew proper boundaries.

In the few public outings I have been on, I have done very well. I am initially a bit shy and reserved with new people, but warm up quickly when I realize they just want to give me pets. I do believe that I would enjoy going places with my people as I have a pretty chill and loving personality. I have been on a few walks and enjoyed them. However, I am not an "active" dog so probably wouldn't be up for long hikes or runs with my new family. I have pretty good manners when saying hello to people and don't jump on them. I am indifferent when it comes to meeting new dogs in public, but may get on to them for the first few days in my new home if they get into my space. I feel like my ideal activity level in my new home would be one that likes going somewhere every now and then with me, and other times or more homebodies.

I am a pretty lazy girl so playing fetch doesn't appeal to me. I will occasionally chew on toys, but am not crazy about them. I have not had the chance to play in any water, but my guess is that I would not be interested in going for swims or playing in it.

I do feel like my energy level and personality would make me a candidate for apartment living. I am potty and kennel trained. I have not shown to be a big chewer in my foster home, however, my former family said that I did not like being left all alone. So, to be on the safe side I think a family that is home all day or at least had other doggie companions is a must for me. I have not been a big barker in my foster home. My fosters have recently started letting me have free roam of the house when they are away and I do well with it. At night, I like sleeping in the bedroom with them on a doggie bed.

That is all I have to share about myself. I really hope that we are a match. In case you missed it, the app to adopt me can be found at

Please I am begging you though, only apply to adopt me if you can keep me forever. If you can't keep me through ALL of my life's changes, don't be the one that makes me have to be passed around a few months/years down the line. That just isn't fair to me.

I would NEVER give up on myself, so please don't give up on me. I want to be your forever...not your until dog.
