Meet Smarties

Add to favourites

Smarties is a handsome and lovable pup with a heart full of potential. As a Pyrenees, he boasts a majestic appearance, characterized by his thick, fluffy white coat and expressive eyes that radiate intelligence and curiosity. Standing tall and proud, Smarties has already grown to be a big dog, and he enjoys spending a significant amount of his time outdoors, exploring and taking in the world around him.

We believe that Smarties’ ideal home would be one with experienced owners who understand the unique needs of a Pyrenees and are committed to providing him with the training, structure, and socialization he requires. Due to his limited exposure to various environments, Smarties may initially feel overwhelmed by new experiences, people, and animals. Patient and consistent guidance from his adopters will be crucial in helping him gain confidence and develop into a well-rounded adult dog.

While Smarties’ socialization has been limited, he has shown glimpses of his sweet and playful nature. He has a loving heart and a gentle soul, and we believe that with the right guidance, he will flourish and become an affectionate and loyal member of the family. Smarties may benefit from gradual exposure to new people, animals, and experiences, ensuring that each introduction is positive and reinforcing positive associations. Since he has been with us, we have seen lots of improvement in this gentle giant. He likes to ease up to us for a good conversation and pets. When he wants our attention , we will feel a inquiring lick on the hand. With encouragement Smarties has discovered the joys of going for walks.

Smarties’ adoptive family should be committed to providing him with the time, attention, and love he deserves. Due to his age and specific needs, we recommend a home without very young children. However, older children who can understand and respect Smarties’ boundaries and participate in his training and care may be a good match. A calm and structured household environment will help Smarties settle in more easily and thrive.
