“Forever A Southern Gentle Pyr.” You won’t be in better company than with Jingo, a handsome six-year-old Great Pyrenees. He is a popular guy at the dog park and likes to supervise the other dogs to ensure there are no disagreements while he leans on his admirers for pets.
We don’t know much about his life before the Great Pyrenees Rescue Society rescued him from a Texas animal shelter after found as a stray in a country field.
We know that Jingo is affectionate and can never get tired of being talked to and petted. He will affectionately ask you for a tummy rub by tucking his front paws into your body. Jingo is house trained, crate trained, and trustworthy enough to have the run of the house as he is not destructive. He behaves on car rides by laying down quietly.
Older Pyrs like to sleep in and take naps throughout the day, and sometimes Jingo won’t get up to go potty outside when asked. He will instead roll on his back for tummy rubs or occasionally pretend to be asleep. Pyrs have a sense of humor you gotta love. He has a slight hip dysplasia, a manageable condition with lifestyle modifications, weight control, limited exercise and joint supplements.
Jingo would thrive in a home with adults, no small children, no cats, and no stairs. Jingo would benefit from a daily walk or hike in his new home and a fenced yard to play in with a semi active resident canine. If you have a place in your home and your heart for Jingo, please complete an application.
All dogs and puppies require VISIBLE fencing
