Great Pyrenees
White / Cream
Coat length:
Say hello to Bowie. When Bowie came to us from a Texas animal shelter as a stray, he was a mess - dirty, matted, malnourished and his coat was dull and thin in places. But after some good groceries, lots of TLC and a trip to the groomer, you have a dog that is a diamond in the rough. He has a gorgeous face and tail that shows what this handsome boy will look like when he is finished being polished!

He stays out of his crate most of the day either lying beside her on the cool tile or beside her on the sofa wanting to play, or in the yard playing with the resident pawsibs. This sweet boy loves attention and petting and has been known to pass out a few kisses!

Bowie wants to be wherever you are. Born around August 2019, he is young, playful and would do well with a resident canine companion and a secure, fenced yard to romp and play in. He is housetrained and sleeps well in a kennel all night without a bark or whine. He eats well, does not counter surf, but does look to see whats for dinner on the kitchen table. Hes very much a gentleman and is respectful in the house and does not run indoors. He plays well with the resident pawsibs, ignores the foster Moms birds, and though he doesnt play much with toys, he likes to chew on bones. He rides well in the car but is lacking in the desire to get in the car and walk on a leash, which will come in time. This boy is going to make someone a great companion! Dont pass him up -- youll be glad you didnt!
