All about Popeye

Popeye is a 1 year old male Great Pyrenees/Mix who weighs 31 pounds.

Weight: 30.00 kg (66 lbs)

A little bit about me:
- Unknown history with small animals, reported to resource guard food, all interactions should be supervised.
- Has lived previously with cats, reported to resource guard food from other animals, interactions should be well supervised.
- Potential for select other dog in home pending successful D2D - reported to resource guard food from other animals.
- Has lived previously with children.
- Adopters must be willing to manage resource guarding when around other animals and work on all potential behaviour modification using force-free, science-based, positive reinforcement training methods.

Ahoy! Looks like our adventures are just about to begin! Hi, my name is Popeye and I'm a sweet boy looking to sail my way into your home and heart. I'm a very happy guy who loves meeting new people, although I would still really appreciate it if you would let me approach you on my own terms. I'm a bit of a wiggle butt, and I don't exactly understand how big of a pup I truly am, so I may jump right into your lap for some lovin'. As you can tell by this, I lack some personal boundaries, but with a bit of patience and training, I'll become the most polite pooch ever! I've lived and socialized with TONS of different animals before, too! This includes cats, other dogs, and even farm animals such as sheep, goats and horses! How cool is that? I've also spent lots of time around kids, too. However, I'm not known as one to share his food and I tend to guard it sometimes, so it would be a great idea if I could eat my meals alone. This is also something we can work on with time and some training! Well, what do you say? Arrrr you ready to begin our next quest together?

** My neuter surgery is booked for January 27th, so I won't be able to go home until the 28th! Don't worry, though, you can still come meet me and place a hold until I'm cleared to go home! **

Note that many dogs do not reach full size until they are about a year and a half old. The weight listed here is the dog's current weight.
