ADOPTION PENDING (R&J M) Hi! I’m Sunflower, a happy Great Pyrenees/Anatolian Shepard mix. If you appreciate the intelligence, ler with a little less shedding, I am your Gal! My first owners bought me at 8 weeks old to be a “livestock guardian”. With no training, they left me out alone to guard the goats. I was lonely independence, and look of a gorgeous Grwithout my mama and kept going back to my owners’ house. They didn’t like that. Then at 9 months, I got pregnant by the neighbor’s St. Bernard and the family gave me up .☹. My new foster family helped deliver my pups. But sadly, all of them passed away. I was devastated, and searched for my babies for three weeks. I found the blanket that they had been wrapped in, and carried it around the house with me. It was such a sad time for all of us. However, I am now a happy, athletic, independent, calm, and stunning one year old! I keep my foster family laughing with my crooked smile and “galoofy” expressions. I learned to sit in five minutes and always sit patiently for my breakfast. I do need daily exercise and a fenced yard that I can patrol and protect. I walk nicely on a leash, but can be allowed off-leash too. I always rejoin my foster mom after exploring when we are out on our daily walks. I am a good guardian for my people and their menagerie of chihuahuas 😊 I sleep next to my foster mom’s bed every night and am vigilant for any sounds that might indicate danger. I never sound a false alarm or bark unnecessarily. Those silly chihuahuas are always yapping and snapping at me. I take it with a grain of salt and ignore them. One the chihuahuas and I do a bit of “wrestling”! I understand how tiny he is, so I’m very careful to play gently. An Australian Shepard foster puppy is my best friend.. I’m still a growing girl.I’ll never be "huge", but I have a big heart and lots of love to share!

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