Beautiful Brissa is a five to six year old girl with impeccable house manners. If you are at work or running errands, Brissa will wait quietly for you to return. Once you are home, she will greet you happily with a waggy tail and a few good snuffles with her snout. After she gets some hello pets, Brissa is content to go lie back down in her dog bed.

Brissa has let her foster family know about some of her favorite things. She enjoys as many pets and as much brushing as you have time for. She loves popcorn. And she relishes her daily walks. She is not a fast walker, preferring to casually stroll so she can stop and sniff all the smells along the way. Brissa does well walking in the neighborhood and on nearby hiking trails.

Brissa has also faced some challenging new experiences in her foster home. She has had to learn about going up and down the steps to get in and out of the house. She does it like a champ now! She is learning to get in and out of the car cooperatively. She has made a lot of progress with this! And she is working on only shedding outdoors so her foster mom doesn't have to sweep as often. She is having a lot of trouble figuring this out and it may be a lost cause.

Brissa is very much a Great Pyrenees inside and out. She needs a home with good strong leaders who will not give in when she resists doing what is asked of her. She also needs someone who understands that treats and quiet stubbornness of your own are sometimes the best way to get through to a Great Pyrenees. Once Brissa has learned to trust you, she will let more of her silly, endearing personality shine through.

Brissa does okay with other dogs after very slow and careful introductions. She does not live with cats in her foster home, but has met several while visiting friends. She gave each cat a sniff and then showed no further interest in them.

Brissa is currently being fostered in Klamath Falls, OR.

All our dogs require secure VISIBLE fencing.
