Meet Cara! She is such a special lady!  Rescued from a shelter before she was to be euthanized due to lack of space at the shelter, she came to us terrified.  Who can blame her? Shelters are very scary places for most dogs. 

Cara has really flourished with her foster family and is truly the sweetest dog that loves to be petted and snuggled.  Cara is good with other dogs, cats not so much, and enjoys an equal amount of playtime and lounging on the sofa. Cara is great with children but because she is still lacking a bit of confidence, older/considerate children would be best. 

This sweet girl is well-mannered, potty trained is working on basic commands. Cara is very smart and just needs a bit of guidance and time to build her confidence from her past.  We believe Cara was not treated very well before coming to us. She is overcoming her fear of "pole objects" such as brooms and mops and sadly we know what that often means.  Cara is also a little slow warming up to men but within a short time becomes a best buddy. Most likely, Cara will never adjust to a crate but does very well when left alone in the house.  A little TV and a comfy chair and she does great! Typical for a guarding breed (Great Pyrenees), Cara exhibits a bit of guarding behavior and so food/toys should be provided with caution with other dogs present. 

Cara is loving, kind, gentle...really a perfect dog and just needs to learn that humans are good, they can be trusted and that she can just relax and know she will receive a lifetime of love in her forever home.
