Arrival Story:
Saw Murphy at the dog park with a lady who I had seen before, but not with him. Asked if she had gotten a new dog. She told me the story of how some people had left and abandoned him and she took him in. But, she said she now had FIVE dogs, and he was a bit much. He got along great with my mastiff, and I suggested that we could take him, as we had had a Pyrenees in the past and knew what great dogs they were. After about a week or so, Murphy came to live with us. Very nice addition to the family.

When my first people moved away, I weighed about 75 pounds. The rescue place got me up to about 90. My dad knew I was pretty skinny, so he started feeding me better. I now weigh 125 pounds and everyone says I look great. I have a man who comes to my house about every 2 months and he gives me a bath and grooming in his van. I love that. Maggie only gets to do that once in a while, because she's easier for my dad to take care of. My hair can get really long and I need more care.


How I Got Here

Well, up until I was about 2, I lived in someone's yard. My job was to protect goats. My owner used to throw some food out for me once in a while, but never let me inside their house. One day, those people moved away and just left me behind. I wandered to a neighbor's house who had seen me in my yard from time-to-time. This lady was really nice. She took me to a rescue place for Great Pyrenees, because I really didn't have a home any more. After a while, the rescue place said I could stay with that lady, but she already had 4 other dogs. She took me to a dog park one day and my new dad saw that she had a new dog (me) and started talking to her. I heard her tell my dad my story and that she didn't know what she was going to do with me. My dad told her that he used to have a dog like me and since I got along with his other dog, Maggie, he thought that maybe I could live with them. Well, we saw each other at the park a couple more times, then one day the lady took me to my dad's house. I loved it there. We have a really big yard and my mom and dad let me come inside whenever I want (except sometimes when I'm really dirty-I like to lay in the dirt and mud sometimes). Maggie's pretty nice to me, and we play together some time, but she is queen of the house. I let her think she's in charge. My dad takes us for a walk every morning, then Maggie and I come home and I hang out outside most of the time, and Maggie stays inside. But our back door is always open so I can go in-and-out and we all sleep inside at night. I like that a lot better.
