Available Dogs - Ponysaurus

Ponysaurus 19

Ponysaurus is a wonderful eight year old Great Pyrenees mix with a golden heart. 

He is an affectionate guy who is very easy going. He loves to be with his humans and will follow you throughout the house to be as a close as possible. Even though he is a large dog, he thinks he is a lap dog and loves to lay with his head in your lap. He loves to be petted and brushed and will gently paw at you to keep petting him if you stop. However, he is also content to lie nearby and take a nap if you are busy (beware of his snoring though!). Ponysaurus is fine in his crate as well, but he prefers to be with his people.

Ponysaurus is very well mannered. He is very friendly with everyone he meets, rides well in a car, and walks great on a leash. Ponysaurus is also smart, very food motivated, and eager to please, making him easy to train. He knows to sit, stay, and come, and he is learning to “lie down.” He even knows to sit and wait at meal time. However, his intelligence may also cause him to get into some trouble. His previous owner described Ponysaurus as a bit of an “escape artist.” This has not been a problem at all since coming to NRGRR though, where his fosters live in an apartment and keep him on a leash whenever outside.

Ponysaurus is a goofy, sweet dog looking for someone who will reciprocate his unconditional love. Could this guy be right for you???
