Kato is a people-friendly, dog-friendly, and cat-friendly "gentle giant" whose family was not able take him when they moved out of state. Kato was born on 02/25/2011. He loves attention--especially belly rubs, but any kind of petting and loving--which he would much rather have than the finest food. If you stop too soon, he will reach out to you with a giant paw and encourage you to continue. Kato is neutered, chipped, and up to date on all shots and his ProHeart6 injection. Kato has a beautiful light and darker tan coat, and he has the classic Pyr double dew claws. More important, Kato is a lovely dog who wants and needs a loving family and will surely be a loving companion. Kato apparently has spent most of his life outside, though he would love to spend most of his time inside. We don't know if he is totally house-trained, but after being inside for several hours he always answered nature's calls outdoors. Kato is a 124-pound Gentle Giant who nuzzles our cat and is gentle with everyone, though he occasionally barks at people unexpectedly walking in the alley behind his house. He and his yard mate, a high energy black Labrakita, get along well. When he's not being petted Kato enjoys lying in the sun watching the birds and squirrels. Kato is being fostered in Lubbock.

The poor dog, in life the firmest friend. The first to welcome, foremost to defend.
