Big fluffy dog lovers, meet Paddington! This super-cuddly 14 week-old pup found himself homeless at an overcrowded county dog shelter. He is listed as a Great Pyrenees mix on his shelter paperwork but there must be some other breeds in his family tree to give him those handsome black and white markings. Just looking at his paws, you know this kiddo is going to grow into a big dog! Paddington has been an extremely good puppy since he arrived here with us to find his forever home. He loves meeting new people and gets along great with other dogs. Paddington loves to play so he would really enjoy having a playful canine buddy in his new home to help keep him busy and entertained. Like many large breed pups, he’s kind of a chill guy but definitely has bursts of puppy zoomies too. Paddington has been excellent in his crate—no accidents and very quiet. He should pick up the housetraining routine quickly in his new home with patient and consistent positive direction from his new family. He will need a family who is home much of the time to work with him on housetraining (needs to go outside every 2 hours during the day), leash skills, and continued socialization. He is getting used to a leash and with some daily practice in his new home should soon have that down pat. You just can’t help wanting to hug this sweet pup. He’s going to make a fantastic companion for one very lucky person or family. Puppies are lots of fun but also LOTS of work. Please make sure you have the time, energy, and patience to raise a puppy before filling out an application. Adopting a puppy is like having a toddler in your home 24/7. Paddington weighs about 25 pounds currently and we expect he’ll be 80+ pounds once full-grown. His adoption fee is $350. He’s neutered, on monthly heartworm preventative, up to date on vaccinations for his age, wormed, on flea and tick preventative, and microchipped. As part of the adoption process, all adopters must commit to a two-week adjustment period to make sure it’s a great match before the adoption is finalized. Please email if you’re interested in Paddington. An approved application is required before we schedule meets with any of our dogs. Please note that we don’t place our dogs in homes with children under 7 years of age. We correspond via email so please check your junkmail or spam folder to make sure our reply hasn’t landed in there.
