Tygrys is a 4 year old, 100lb, Great Pyrenees-Anatolian Shep mix. This handsome guy was adopted from GRRAND when he was saved from a kill shelter at 3 months old, and his family has had some life changes that have sadly resulted in them making the hard decision to turn him back into GRRAND.
We are told by his current owner's, that he is a sweet boy, is house-trained and seems to have the Guardian Dog protecting the house tendencies, as at night he likes to roam from room to room to keep watch and make sure everything is ok. They say he gets along with other dogs, but has had some issues with some other dogs he used to live with who didn't accept him in the pack so he is seemingly dog selective. He was out in the play yard with Cookie and Noelle at the kennel and they all had a good time together!
He is new to a foster home and his foster parents used a few adjectives: "loyal, sweet, attentive, protector, wants to please, has serious side of his personality but does relax". They are also doing all they can to get him out to socialize and walk him, and we will update as they tell us more!
This is what the kennel staff says about Tig "We love him at the kennel! He has been well-trained and walks perfectly. He loves to lay out in the play yard, watch over the kennel, and play in the pool. When he comes into the office he will curl up in one of the beds and rest; you don't even know he's there. The kennel manager has taken him on field trips to the park and a brewery, and reported that he's perfect! He is so handsome and gets a lot of attention, which he laps up! He was out in the play yard with Cookie and Noelle and they all had a good time together!
Tig does need a yard to play in and we've learned that once he gets to know his person he will protect them, even against other dogs, so even though he can be around other dogs outside, he needs to be the only dog in the home".
