CHARLIE-BOY was saved from a high kill shelter in Texas where dogs have just 3 dogs to be saved and transported to the rescue in Sebec, Maine. CHARLIE-BOY is neutered, core vaccines, rabies, heartworm & tick disease tested negative, de-wormed, monthly preventatives and micro-chipped. He has an estimated date of birth of 21 November 2017 and at the time of rescue in the middle of June 2019, weighed around 63.00 pounds. He is listed as an Great Pyrenees Mix. We have no way of knowing the exact breed, it is up to individuals to decide what breed they think is most likely.
Charlie-Boy is a great dog he is such a happy go lucky boy. He is great with other dogs absolutely LOVES people he is responsive so I think training would be easy and a lot of fun. He is of course long haired and so you must understand the importance of brushing / grooming to prevent mats - he is in need of a good brush and bath now :/.
He is a big boy and is full of energy so an active lifestyle is important. He is in the kennel building so I can't say what he is like in a home but judging by his personality I think he would be fine - he will need to be trained and to learn the rules and what he can and can't do and what is expected of him - as with all dogs. He is very smart. He is laidback but active - he is not a dog that is bouncing off the walls all the time needing to be doing something but he definitely needs an active lifestyle or he will end up being like that
WE ARE NOT ABLE TO COMMENT HOW SHE WILL BE AROUND CATS OR LIVESTOCK.
CHARLIE-BOY is available for adoption for an adoption fee of US $550.
Canadian adopters need to know that customs charge 15% taxes when entering into Canada. This fee is not negotiable and is used to cover the rescue costs of pulling, vetting, health certificate, transport from Texas to Maine, monthly preventatives, supplements, food and anything else that is needed.
