About Pasha

Adoption Fee: $175
Great Pyrenees
Age: Young Adult
Sex: Male

No, he is not a Great Pyranees but no other breed fit him closely on this site for the options. The truth is, Pasha is an Armenian Gampr. He is a huge 130 ish lbs. We are told he is around 2 years old so after being in rescue for a year now, I guess that would make him almost 3 years old! He is a special boy needing the right fit in a home. Lots of fenced acreage to guard and protect (minimum 1 acre lot would be ideal). He was brought to rescue when his guardian killed herself tragically around Christmas. Family members he had never met were afraid to enter the barn he was living in and threw dog food over the door. They contacted the vet to have him tranquilized and euthanized. That's when we were called by the owner's friend. He will growl if approached without knowing you but has had no other reactions. The perfect guard dog we think! As long as he meets new people with us, then he is great! That's sort of what his breed is meant to do...guard. He just needs a caretaker that understands his rare breed, energy levels, and that he loves to check out the property lines and make sure all is well and as it should be. He knows sit and shake and down. He loves to go for leashed walks but is very strong of course. He also LOVES cuddles. And he LOVES TO PLAY TAG! He was raw fed by his owner but he have successfully transitioned him to kibble. Raw feeding is the best for a dog's health anyway when done correctly. Pasha dog tested beautifully with other medium to large dogs and currently plays with a big Great Pyrenees puppy. We have not small dog tested (under 20 lbs). Please contact us for more information. We are particular on the home he goes to. He was shock collar trained incorrectly and now fears beeping noises. He is by no means a bad dog, he is a sweet boy when he meets you and knows you and he deserves a life doing the job he was meant to do, protecting his people and property. He is not a livestock guardian dog , but he is more of a personal protection dog. We truly adore this gentle giant. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Intake date: 9 December 2018----- Breed: Armenian Gampr ----- Age: 2-3 years ----- Weight:120 lbs ----- Status: Owner Passing ----- Compatible with: medium to large dogs ----- Suitable for: secure acreage ----- Medical/Behavioral Needs: None noted ----- --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- If interested in meeting and potentially adopting, please read the adoption requirements and complete the adoption application located at All canine residents are spayed/neutered, vaccinated, dewormed, microchipped, and treated for any known medical needs.
