URGENT: This animal could be euthanized if not adopted soon.

From the RescueMe's Great Pyrenees postings.

Gawd, I hate people that dump animals!! The animals don't understand what has happened to them, or why. And they are good hearted enough to wonder if the owner is going to come back for them. If I didn't already have 3 Pyr's, I'd go get him.


Can anyone help? Even if its just to foster him for awhile?

4. Maybe one of these groups can help if you contact them?

I'm in WI and we get dogs up here all the time from Texas and other states with lots of kill-shelters. Some organization will surely help if they know about the poor boy.

7. There are pet transport people

I'd be willing to contribute to that, as I'm sure other DU dog lovers would.

Right now, they're still trying to catch him. I heard back from this person tonight, who is in NC, and reposted this from a person in TN. She said the latest if that the dog is still there, coming back at dark to look for his owner.

It kind of sounds to me like he may have been a LSG (Livestock Guardian Dog), who aren't especially socialized. A good one is highly valued on farms....unless he starts going after his charges. They have to raised with stock from a puppy, you can't just throw an adult in with a bunch of sheep or goats, and expect it to know its job.

Pyr's can be standoffish with strangers until the owner tells them its okay, but it sounds like this boy is abandoned and afraid. Who knows, maybe someone just couldn't afford to feed him/her (they haven't been able to tell yet). Still no excuse for dumping him. Its a misconception that Pyr's eat a lot. No more than any other big dog. They're not real high energy.

If anyone wants to know more about the breed, just PM me.

8. Pet transport people, huh?

 

-

To be perfectly honest, if my ability to help falls through, I think I'd rather that they didn't catch the dog.

Catching him just to kill him just isn't right.

9. The dog does not seem like a "socialized pet" from your description of his/her behavior.

As a matter of fact, I rarely hear of dumped pet dogs being this skittish....Usually they will attach themselves to whoever comes along, especially if food is involved

10. He may have good reason to be skittish

He's not coming from a good situation.

I'm in touch with a couple of Pyr rescue groups, including one in TN. Hopefully will hear back from them tomor.

Thanks all! Will let you know how it turns out.

11. Poor baby!

I hope someone rescues him soon! He's probably terrified and confused. My heart breaks for him. I hope we hear of a happy outcome.

12. I got in touch

With the woman that runs the rescue, Big Fluffy Dogs, and she is trying to get hold of the person who did the original posting. I'm hoping she can track down this dog .

Will update when I hear more.
