Adonis is a 4-5 year old male Pyrenees mix weighing around 90lbs.  It’s a miracle Adonis is alive!  Let us tell you his story— He was found in a culvert weighing only 46lbs!  He was near death due to being so starved and neglected.  Fort Worth shelter picked him up and immediately started him on fluids, special diet, and medications.  It was touch and go but Adonis is a strong boy and he pulled through and is thriving.  His foster continued all his supportive care and his physical issues are all healed.  He is at his full weight and has blossomed into a handsome and gorgeous male Pyrenees mix.  He is not destructive inside or outside of my home and is not a digger.  He does patrol the yard and will bark at strangers.  He is dog friendly with all sorts of breeds, male and female dogs, small, medium, and large dogs.  He is cat neutral i.e. if the cat claws or bites him he runs away and ignores the cat but if the cat is friendly he will hang out with the cat.  He is a shy, sweet guy and would prefer a calm home without screaming or chaos as that will scare him.  Fireworks do frighten him so during those holidays, he needs to be indoors.   He is healed physically but emotionally he is a very sensitive soul and would not do well with a loud dominant family or person.  He is standoffish at first but if you take time with him and talk sweetly, he warms up to you and is super loving when he trusts you.  He likes all kinds of goodies, treats, food of all sorts.  His ideal home he could be an only dog or have a doggie buddy.  He could be with a family if the kids are sweet and gentle, a couple, or a single person.  He is not much of a hiker or runner, but walks would be sufficient.  Must have a fenced yard as he will roam if no fence or holes in your fence.  He is not off leash trained.  He is trained for sit, come, heel for leash walking, and “nice” or “gentle” for taking treats.  The only thing this sweet giant is not fond of is his crate.  He sleeps in his crate at night, and it is his safe place if you do not close the door. He has no issue with riding in the car as he has learned the car can go fun places.  He is such a super great dog and has come so far; he needs his forever home for this sweet gentle giant!!!  Adonis is currently being fostered in the DFW area and can be on the next PNW transport!
