About Fergus

Great Pyrenees / Anatolian Shepherd
Age: Young Adult
Sex: Male

Name: Fergus Sex: Male Breed: Great Pyrenees/Anatolian Shepherd Age: Born Sept 2020 Dogs/cats: Adoptable in MA & NH Stunning isn't he? Meet Fergus! This boy is a 3 1/2-year young Great Pyrenees/ Anatolian Shepherd(+) mix, (DNA tested) and embodies the typical livestock guardian dog traits and personality. Fergus has never been a working dog. He is happy to live in a house with his humans, provided he has a fenced back yard to spend time in. He is house trained and presently shares space with a 13-year-old female dog and a 13-year-old cat. He loves his daily walks and thoroughly enjoys affection from his people. For a Pyr/Anatolian mix, he's quite food driven and enjoys learning new things. He's flawless on a leash, crate trained, and muzzle trained. What Fergus really needs is a home with people who understand AND appreciate LGD breed traits. What does that actually mean? That his behaviors are a feature, not a flaw. ~ Features such as barking when a car pulls up to the house, when strangers enter the home, or when alerting to perceived threats. IYKYK Fergus is open to having his trusted human help him navigate through who is actually a threat, and when you pair new things with a tasty tidbit, he's happy to change his associations. ~ Fergus is protective of his meals (who isn't?). This is easily solved by feeding Fergus in a gated area. ~ Fergus may be 100 lbs of stunning, but he's actually a sensitive guy and would thrive with a family who wants that special bond with their dog. I promise you that when you meet him and look into those beautiful eyes, you'll see his sweet soul in there. Fergus needs a family who is 100% committed to using humane, evidence based methods of training. He's had some unfortunate experiences in the past, and we promised him that his new family would continue with the training he is currently receiving. At 3 years old, Fergus is just now hitting maturity, which every LGD breed lover has been waiting for. He's working through his big feelings and is ready to be your steadfast companion and partner. Fergus is a very special boy who is looking for his special people. To be transparent, Fergus struggles with some handling issues resulting in him using teeth to get his message across. Recently, he has been learning to trust and be trusted and has made great progress. His future family will benefit from relationship-based training that focuses on consent and kindness. His wonderful trainer has offered to donate a pre-adoptions session to his next (forever) family! For questions, please email [email protected]. If you are interested in Fergus and fit the needs/requirements described in this profile, you can apply to adopt online at www.survivortails.org. NOTE: We can only adopt to residents of MA or NH.
