Hi, i'm Finley
Age: 5 years old, 90 lbs
Info: UTD, Microchipped, Neutered
Breed: Purebred Great Pyrenees
Handsome Finley is a 5-yr old purebred Great Pyrenees. He’s “only” 90 lbs. Finley came to us from a shelter in Kentucky, therefore we have no background information. He arrived at IM DINGO in January 2018, being very dirty, matted and looked neglected. Based on his behavior and looks we believe he was an outside dog. What we have learned since he’s been with us:
Finley LOVES attention. He can cuddle forever, enjoys being close to his human and is very sweet. He isn’t a huge fan of the fireplace or TV. He enjoys wrestling with his 3-yr old foster Pyr sister. Finley enjoys the outdoors but definitely appreciates the A/C and being inside. Finley is crate trained but right now he sleeps very comfortable on his dog bed or nice cold tile flooring.
When there are thunder storms or if he wants some quit time, he will enjoy a nice nap in his XXL crate. He would do best in a quit environment. a home where there’s not a lot of coming and going. Hopefully where there’s a Pyrenees sister to keep him company, or being the only dog ( He ignores the other breeds)
Even though he enjoys being inside, he’s not the kind of dog, who will be “happy” to be inside all day while the owners are at work. On the cooler days, he’s definitely outside a lot more than on the warmer days.
He ignores cats and tested fine with chickens, horses and a bunny. He’s very shy when he meets new people. It takes a little while for him to warm up to them. Because he gets startled rather quickly, we don’t think that a house holding with small children or a house holding with a lot of coming and going would be a good fit. Finley is definitely a “pleaser” and wants to be a good boy all the time.
Finley is being fostered in Pauls Valley, OK.
