Rescue-Hearts, an animal foster, placement and adoption non profit organizaiton has the following two VERY BIG FRIENDS in need of some help to find new homes. More importantly? They need to be together and they need something to do with their time. Herding is their THING.
Here is their story written by their current foster family in Texas.
The Foster Family Writes:
I recently took in two Great Pyrenees working dogs. A male and a female, 3 years old, spayed, neutered, and vaccinated.
Their owner, suffered health problems with her heart which required a specialty heart treatment center located in Pennslvania. Before agreeing to the treatment the owner found a placement home for her dogs, but two days before her move to Pennsylvania, the home changed their mind about taking the two dogs.
Obviously the owner was very distressed and at a loss of what to do with these gentle giants. Then...
Someone referred her to me. Now, I have the dogs in our small acreage with our sheep and goats. We really dont have the need for 2 pyrs on 18 acres because there is nothing for them to protect the sheep against.
Both dogs are good with cats (except bobcats of course!) They are friendly - but the male more-so than the female. The previous owner said they should not be seperated because Peaches would stop eating and become depressed as she's very attached to OJ - who is her partner in herding and in life.
If anybody knows of someone looking for some Livestock Guardian Dogs who will take both dogs and has a flock of sheep or herd of goats for them to watch then please contact Lori Brooks, email@example.com.
