Kramar is a sweet Great pyrenees puppy who does great with other dogs. He was rescued from a high kill shelter where his time was up. He also does very well with baths as he just lays there ready for a massage.
Foster update: He is playing well with all the other dogs and his food aggression is diminishing. I can now put my hand in his food when he is eating. If he does not want to share a bone with one of the other dogs I simply take it away. He goes into his crate when I say “kennel” and I do give him a treat for going in the kennel and sitting nicely. He also walks pretty well on a leash. I would say that he is ready for a meet and greet. He is still on antibiotics but that is not a hindrance in getting adopted. He really needs to go outside every couple hours to avoid accidents. The Great Pyrenees is a capable and imposing guardian, devoted to its family, and somewhat wary of strangers - human or canine. They are often used to guard livestock. When not provoked, it is calm, well- mannered, and somewhat serious. Courageous, very loyal and obedient. Gentle and affectionate with those he loves. Devoted to family even if self-sacrifice is required. It is very gentle with its family and children. It does best with children when it is raised with them from puppyhood, and if they are not being used as working flock guards be sure to socialize them well with people, place and noises. It has an independent nature, and may try to dominate a less secure or meek owner, and/or an owner who treats the dog as if he is a human , becoming stubborn or terrieral . Owners need to be firm but calm, confident and consistent with the dog. Setting rules the dog must follow and sticking to them. A serious worker, but very independent. Be patient when training the Great Pyrenees, as it may be slightly difficult. The Great Pyrenees is good with non-canine animals, and usually loves cats. These dogs do not reach maturity until they are about 2 years old. Some are not good off the leash and may wander away. The Great Pyrenees tend to bark a lot and some tend to drool and slobber.
