We caught wind of a Great Pyrenees that was going to be taken to the pound over the weekend. My husband and I stepped in to take on the responsibility to make sure this guy didn’t end up taking that route. The family that surrendered him would not meet us and facilitated the transition through a neighbor that we knew. When we arrived to pick up Appa, all he was left with was a trash bag with his bowls and a little bit of food. All we were told was that he’s roughly 6.5 months. After trying to reach back out to the family who surrendered him, we finally got word from them that Appa had not yet been to the vet. We scheduled an appointment immediately.
We have a 15 pound havachon and noticed quickly that Appa grew incredibly attached to him. Makes sense! We started to worry about his growing attachment and started to have a few interactions that worried us about everyone’s safety.
We were able to take him to the vet this morning. Unfortunately, they were not able to help and informed us that they were picking up on signs that Appa had not had much, if any, interaction with animals or humans, alike. They could not get him past the front desk to run any tests..
We want to do what’s best for this pup. He truly has a gentle heart. And we know our current situation is not it. Our hearts are breaking. We were pointed in your direction as an affiliate of national Great Pyrenees rescue.
We are currently in Clarksville, TN and can bring him in as soon as possible. Or, if there’s a different direction that you feel as though we should take or anyone that we can be pointed to, please help. We are not taking this role lightly!
