The two girls are big and loving, happy with humans and kids. Once acclimatized, they’re OK with other dogs, but need formal introductions before joining the party. Cats are an unknown commodity in their lives. They’ve lived alone on a big farm, so are not used to the social parameters that a more urban life entails. Since moving onto Saturna Island to a temporary home, last week they’ve adapted well, but have not been freed as yet to roam the territory unsupervised.
They’re big, although “Chicken” is small for a Pyrenees and “Nugget” is some kind of mix that has enabled her to grow nearly as big. Chicken is 8, but not spayed because there were no boys around and Nugget is 2 years old and has been spayed. I’m not sure of the logic there.
They’ve been cared for by the local vet but without issues – both are on worm pills, but that’s it. Two happy, healthier doggies would be hard to find, but they do need their space and they will need some time to get used to the new surroundings and the laws of the land. While they’ve been a team working the farm, I think they’d be just as happy if they had their own individual homes.
This is a courtesy post so please fill out an application here if interested as we are assisting with placement. We will also ensure they are vetted and Chicken is spayed before adoption so an adoption fee will be required.
