View Full Version : Pyr Adoption Criteria

It is a very interesting read here and I am learning a lot about the Pyr breed.

So for Peaches, and given your experiences with living with a Pyr, and your knowledge of their behaviors, what do you think the adoption criteria should be for the rescue's screening process for potential adopters?

Has the owner ever owned an LGD

Do they have a fenced yard

Do they understand their independance

Do they do any activities like hiking

Do they have kids and are they responsible

Do they know about the groomign requirements

Do they know that they are not good offleash dogs and don't come when called

Do they know how aggressive they can potentially be and what the consequences can be?

Just off the top of my head.

Biggest thing, are they responsible dog owners!

Ok thanks. Exactly what I am looking for. Nice thorough list but I failed or responded "no" to half the questions.....but I am learning and getting experienced.
