Meet Ben

Add to favourites

Ben is a 3.5 month old, Great Pyrenees mix. This is a giant breed. That cute little white ball of fluff will grow up to weigh 90 to 120 pounds. They are a livestock guardian breed used for protecting sheep and other livestock. They are an extremely vocal breed and are very HIGH MAINTENANCE in the grooming department! Pyrenees are notorious for wandering so Ben is looking for a home with a very secure yard. Because they are guardian dogs, Great Pyrenees are suspicious as a rule. They will graciously admit anyone you invite into your home, but intruders or unexpected visitors will get a very different, much more intimidating reception. If none of that fazes you, a Great Pyrenees may be your dog of choice.

Adopting a puppy is a big decision (and life-long commitment to the dog!). Before taking the plunge, it is a good idea to research breeds, training techniques etc and should include all members of the family. The time it takes in the beginning (house training, chewing, waking you up at night, training, socializing) more than pays itself back when your uncontrolled mass of energy grows to be an invaluable member of the family. If you think that adopting a puppy is right for you, please see one of the shelter staff for more information.
