Meet An Adoptable Dog
Breed: Great Pyrenees (long coat)
Weight: 74.2 lbs
Estimated Birthdate: 4/15/2016
Fence Needed: Yes
Location: Dreamweaver Farms, Pacolet SC
Reason for being in rescue: Gretel was found as a stray
Special Needs: none noted
What kind of home would be best for me: Gretel is born for farm life. She enjoys the quiet of nature over the bustle of a cottage filled with other dogs. She is definitely a country girl who is not made for city living. Gretel would love a quiet retreat where she can roam through gated yards with her family and enjoy quiet time with her family.
What is my personality like: Like Grimm's character in the classic fairytale, Gretel was born to shine. This regal girl is a quiet observer to most of the happenings of the farm, but her one on one and she will show you what she is made of. She is not a dog that enjoys toys or even basic commands. Treats are great (and she is very gentle about taking them from your hand) but don't expect to be rewarded with tricks from this independent girl.
Gretel is fairly indifferent to other dogs, until it is time to eat. She will guard her food and will remind any canine that comes near her dish that it is hers. She never shown aggression toward humans, but mealtime is serious business in Gretel's world. She will never be a dog that you can leave food out for with other animals around.
How do I act when I first meet new people: Gretel is curious about people, sometimes even aloof. She likes people, but does not seek them out for affection. She prefers to sit back and watch what is going on.
Tips and Tidbits: Gretel is a gentle giant. She is in a new, noisy, unfamiliar environment right now and eager for calmer days!
House trained: Dogs can be house trained if they are in the right environment and are allowed to follow a schedule as long as a physical reason doesn't keep them from being trained. A dog house trained in my home may not be in yours. We will help you teach your new dog this necessary skill and based on your schedule.
Please note - we do not ship or transport our dogs. If you are interested in adopting a dog, take a look at the distance between the dog's location and your location and make sure you are able to make the trip.
Thank you for your interest in a dog who needs a new home. This description contains all that we currently know about this dog. We have no perfect dogs - but many of our dogs have proven to be perfect for a certain someone. We urge all of our potential adopters not to fall in love with a picture. When screening applications, we look at the entire home and then make suggestions based on what would be a good fit for your home. You are not being screened for a specific dog although we are looking to see what type of dog interests you - poodles or non poodles, age, temperament, personality, etc. Our goal is to match you with the best possible pet for you and your home. We want to create furever families.
