Bear is a rare addition to Pawfect Match-- a bonafide Great Pyrenees! Bear is a very sweet and loving dog. He really wants to be a companion. He loves to ride in the car and does well with most dogs (he has had moments of being dog selective, true to his breed type). He is gentle with children a very much a guard dog. He doesn't bark much but will be on alert if any person, dog, bird, lizard, or other critter approaches the house. He loves to sit on front porches and watch the world go by-- giving his approval or a low 'woof' that says "hey there-- I see you!" He is a Pyrenees through and through.
Bear was a stray found in Wilson County, NC. His hair was so horribly matted that we had to shave him down to the skin. It is growing out and will be a long-haired fluffy boy with the typical Pyrenees curly-Q tail.
Being a purebred, Bear has some digestive troubles. He has a very sensitive stomach and has to be give probiotics and special food. We think his tummy hurts and so he won't each much, thus causing him to be 20lbs + underweight. We are working with our vet partners to understand the root cause and get him on a long term plan for health. Until then, he is eating lots of carrots, sweet potatoes, and peanut butter. Despite these issues, he is great about doing his business outside.
Bear is crate-trained and pretty easy to manage-- although he is tall! We prefer applicants who have experience with the breed and a yard for him to roam. He can jump a 3-4 foot fence, so a tall fence or constant monitoring would be needed.
