Brinkman is one beautiful girl....
This big floofy floof is 3 year old Brinkman, our new resident Great Pyr at the kennel. She was on the euthanasia list at a shelter and GRRAND got to her just in time! She is looking for her forever family and if you are in love with her looks, you will love his personality even more! If you are not familiar with the Great Pyrenees breed, we ask you research them before applying as GP's are beautiful and have a great temperament like a Golden, but they are NOT Golden's! They have their own special "traits" that you should know. To know a Great Pyr is to LOVE a Great Pyr, but they are different than Golden Retrievers.
Brinkman is new to GRRAND and she has just gone to a foster home and here is what we are learning so far:
"Brinkman needs to go to a home without other dogs and without cats. I have 2 cats and Brinkman has been kept separate but she barks at them if she sees them through the baby gate. She especially gets upset if she sees them jump on the couch with me. So I feel she is resource guarding me, but things are still new so we are learning.
Otherwise Brinkman is a wonderful dog! She is so young and playful and has tons of energy. She loves running and playing keep away with a ball. She races around my backyard so fast! She is very good walking on a leash and responds to the command “leave it” when she wants to go get a bunny (if on the leash). She is very smart and obedient and is easy to train. She already knows sit very well. She’s pretty close to having “down” and “stay” and she is learning to “wait“ for permission before going in and out doors and gates. She is very very affectionate and loves people. It would be best for her to go to a home where someone is home most of the time as she hates to be left and I hate to leave her for much at all.
I have been calling her Brinken and she is so so sweet and affectionate! She truly will be such a wonderful dog for someone who wants a dog to go do a lot of things with and who can give her a lot of exercise and time"'
The folks at the kennel said these great things about here before she went to her foster home:
"She's really quite the perfect dog. Very sweet to humans and she likes to play and romp"
"Brinkman is the sweetest with zero aggression. She walks great on leash and she LOVES to be petted. Brinkman loves people (after what she has been through in his past, I'm surprised she'd ever trust any person)".
We will update as we learn more, but if you would like to meet Brinkman, please fill out an app at GRRAND.org
