Arrival Story: Update 7/10/10 - Laz went home this evening with his forever Mom & dad. Godspeed Laz, we'll miss you and Love you always. Stays well!
This wonderful boy came to us via the Rogers' Rescues Third Annual Shelter Run. I asked the volunteers who were going on the trip to check him out when they visited the rural Kentucky shelter where he was staying. He loved all of their attention and passed his temperament testing and so he accompanied them home to NJ so we can foster him and find him a wonderful, loving home. Check out www.rogersrescues.com for information on volunteering and/or adopting one of our great foster dogs.
Bio: Lazarus was found wandering as a very skinny, very matted stray, and was taken to an animal shelter. We don't know anything about the life that Laz led in Kentucky, but he must have been someone's pet at one time. Although he seemed surprised to be allowed in the house at first, he is well socialized with people and is house-trained. He does not appear to have had any formal obedience training but he's quickly learned Sit and he gives you his paw at the same time, he's too cute. His vetting paperwork lists him at 6 years old but his foster mom thinks he's younger based on his teeth, maybe around 3 or 4. We lovingly refer to him as "the throw rug" since he's just so easy going. But he recently decided to join in playtime with the other dogs and he had a great time bouncing around the yard and wrestling. He gets along fine with all the female dogs in his foster home and the other male foster but he wants to be the alpha male so a home with no other dogs or with a female or submissive male dog will be best for him. He simply craves human attention and loves to be with and get affection from his people. Laz is everything a Great Pyrenees should be - sweet with his people but he also barks loud & low to let any would-be intruders know he's on guard duty. He'll be a wonderful addition to the right family and he'll repay them for the rest of his life with his love and devotion.
