Butterball is a wonderful, 1 yr old Lab/Pyranees mix who came to GRRAND from an outdoor setting where he had been kept in a pen and then let out to guard the sheep in a field. He is a big puppy and has a lot to learn about life, but since he has been with GRRAND, he has not had any accidents in his kennel run or in the office area and he walks well on leash. He appears to like other dogs and tries to engage some of the other kennel dogs in play. He can be a gentle giant, so very sweet and calm, but then, as with any puppy, he can get excited quickly and with his size and strength, he needs someone who can help him calm back down. He loves hanging out in the office at the kennel or going on walks or runs. He generally has a calm nature and will be a wonderful, loyal companion to his new family. He is afraid of riding in the car, but then who wouldn’t be when the car has only taken him to the animal shelter, the vet for shots or neutering, or to a kennel. Butterball needs to learn about all the fun things in life. He is intelligent and would be great in a home with another large dog that he could play with or even in a home as the only dog, as long as he gets lots of people attention. Butterball has been in the kennel for almost 8 weeks and he DESPERATELY needs to get out into either a foster or adoptive home.
This 75 lb big goofball of a love bug is praying his forever family comes along very soon!
