I would absolutely keep her if I didn't already have two dogs, two cats and six horses to care for. In a New York minute! She's sweet natured, kind, sensible, quietly playful, thoughtful, intelligent and has a laid back personality. She sleeps through the night without any accidents and goes potty and poo on command. She hasn't chewed anything except her Busy Bone or her sock toy. She doesn't seem to be a real mouthy pup at all. She's very sensitive and thinks things through. She's a gem. We've taught her to walk on a lead with only a few, short lessons. Good dog.
The sad part of this story is that she's owned by our neighbors who got her and her brother to guard their chickens from the coyotes. The male was caught red-pawed chasing our other neighbor's horses and took a kick, but he's apparently alright. But he is imprisoned for his transgressions in a roughly 6 x 6 cage on concrete with a roof and slatted walls, so when it's windy and rainy, you know how wet he must get. They seem to spend no time with the dogs, allowing them to run at large and they don't even bother to close their gate. We've had the little female the last 3 nights and they haven't even inquired about her. We should be the first place they check because of the number of times we've taken her back home to them. But I'm finished doing that, so we decided to bring her in, clean her up and see how long it took for them to notice she was gone. 3 days later and no one has even inquired as to her whereabouts. Unacceptable! My hubby did take her home this morning, knocked on the door and a man asked, "who's there ?". My hubs called out that I'm your neighbor and I've got your pup. Then he waited and waited and waited...he never came to the door. They do not care.
We're trying very hard to find someone who is interested in giving her a good home. If we do, the pup is just going to disappear. I will do it in a heartbeat and not even think twice about it. No guilt at all. It's the right thing to do, for this pup. I may not be able to help the little male, but I would if I could. She deserves a good home, with people who love her and who care enough to train her to be a good member of society. Dogs running at large are as bad as horses let go untrained in my book. I've talked with my neighbor about the situation, and she's the one whose horses were being chased. She is their landlord and is ultimately responsible for what they do on her property. There are several other issues besides the dogs too, but I won't get into that here. My main concern is for this pup right now.
As you can see, she is lovely. She will be large, but not overly so for a Great Pyrenees. I think she may be the runt, or at least one of the smaller pups.
That's it for today...
