Meet Tsu ki

Anyone in the market for a lion? Because we have a rare Albino one! ;)

Before you is the handsome and mighty Tsu ki (means Lucky in Japanese). This guy is ready to steal some hearts. Before we get into his story, his foster wants to share some things about him!

"Tsu ki has a lot of love to give. He will force his head between your arm and chest to get attention. It seems he has not been treated well and has triggers that make him scared. Tsu ki is working very hard and slowly to learn that not all people will hurt him. He needs to be in a home that will give him space to become the great dog he is destined to be. He is currently on medication to help him heal mentally. He wants to be with his chosen people a lot. He will offer his paws to say hi. But, he does not like it if you try to take his paw without him offering it. He wants to be a cuddle dog but doesn't seem to know-how. Currently, he has time with people and my other Pyrs during parts of the day. We are working up to full roam of the house. He seems to get overwhelmed with 3 other Pyrenees, 4 cats, and 3 kiddos. (Yes, my house can be busy) We let him tell us what is working and isn't working. Tsu ki was recused from a shelter. Tsu ki came to us with mats all over his body. The mats were so bad he couldn't walk well. He had two horrible untreated ear infections and blood in his urine (prostate problem). Tsu ki wasn't eating at the shelter, except for a piece of bacon. At our house, he had gone from eating chicken and rice, then to canned dog food to eating dry dog food. He has received treatment for his ear infections. The prostate problem has resolved with his neuter. He has been shaved because the mats weren't fixable. He prances when he walks now! He holds his tail up and wags it. So beautiful to see him change. Tsu ki needs a home that will be patient with him and shower him with love. He will need a balance of space and attention."

I don't think people fully grasp some of the things these dogs go through. As an owner surrender, Tsu ki shouldn't have had as many medical issues as he did. Untreated ear infections, matts so bad it limited is movement and prostate issues. On top of everything, they surrender him to the shelter where he only had a few hours before he would be euthanized. If not for his foster stepping up for him, he would not be with us today and that just sucks. Tsu ki is learning how to be part of the family at 7 years old. He has come a long way in a short time, and we love seeing life come back into his eyes.

Tsu ki is a 7-year-old male Great Pyrenees. He currently weighs 96lbs but is underweight still. He should have a big fluffy white coat, but sadly his coat was so matted and nasty the groomer was not able to save it. His ear infections have been treated, and the neuter took care of his prostate issues. He is on the mend, and that means he is ready to start the search for his PYRfect family! ♥

??To Tsu ki's Future Family??
-----------------------------------------

? Tsu ki loves going on walks. He is good on a leash and enjoys being out and about. He has been to the vet and groomers and did fine. He was scared, though. While he would enjoy going on walks, he probably wouldn't find being taken to several different places fun. He would rather chill at home in that case. He is initially scared when meeting new people. This is a dog who probably grew up in the backyard with little attention, so that really isn't a big surprise. If you are worried about getting a hug from a big ole polar bear, no worries there. He has good manners and doesn't jump on people.

? If you don't want a puppy to come in like the Tasmanian devil and get after everything, Tsu ki is perfect for you! He is on the calmer side, and well out of his chewing stage. That big and ugly kennel not working with your furniture? No worries! Tsu ki is NOT a fan of kennels and does just fine with free roam of the house. Time to move it to the garage to accidentally trip over when you stumble around in the garage trying to find the light. If you are wanting someone to watch over you while you sleep, you can bet that Tsu ki will do the job! Currently, he sleeps with his fosters 14-year-old son at night in his bedroom.

?If you live in an apartment Tsu ki would be fine, as long as your apartment allows polar bears. However, right now an albino lion is probably a better description of him ;) If you don't like barking, a dog probably isn't for you. However, if you don't mind some barking, especially when there is cause Tsu ki would probably be a good fit for your family!

?Tsu ki is being fostered around other dogs, cats, and kids. He is pretty indifferent to the other dogs. A home with another calmer dog would be perfect for him. A yippy yappy dog or a rambunctious puppy would drive him crazy. The cat he does give chase to when he sees them. If his new family has a cat, it should be one that absolutely does not care about dogs. I am talking about the kind of cat who will plop in the dogs pathway just to make the dog walk around him. If you want a dog that will be good with kids, Tsu ki isn't the guy for you sadly. He has some quirks that he is working out still and can't take on the craziness of toddlers and energetic kiddos. However, if you have older kiddo say 14 and up he would do fine. One that gives him pets, but also pays attention to when he wants to just chill on his own. Tsu ki is the definition of an introvert. He loves attention until he doesn't. Or wait, is that the definition of a cat?! ;)

?? Adopting Tsu ki ??

Tsu ki is becoming a new dog. I like to think he shed the shell of his past, and is now learning how to be a real dog. With that said, he still has some quirks. He isn't a big fan of sharing his stuff with the other dogs. He should be fed separately if his new family has other dogs. Along with that, he shouldn't be placed with any unsuspecting toddlers/puppies who may try to take something from him. He is mostly potty trained, but he still feels the need to mark his territory in the house sometimes. Now with that said, he has just as many great traits.

This boy loves giving you his paw and head nudges. He is not a huge cuddler or attention hog, but when he is he will turn your heart to mush! He has excellent house manners and is a lower-maintenance dog. He would make the perfect early morning walking partner. Or if you are a night owl, he would definitely make you feel safer when going for walks at dusk! Now, if you are feeling like this albino lion/polar bear is the one for you we have some logistics to go over!

Tsu ki is being fostered in Guthrie, OK. His new family needs to be able to pick him up(even if they are out of state). No commercial transports and no shipping. Just a fun road trip with him and his new family! ?~~

His adoption fee is $150. That includes DHLPP, Rabies, and Bordatella shots. He 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 also includes treatment for his ear infections and his grooming.

If you are a patient family that is looking to show a rescue dog just how good life can be, I believe you and Tsu ki would do wonderful together! Tsu ki may not be perfect, but no one is. Along with that, he is going to be the PYRfect for the family that decides he is theirs...quirks and all!
