Maremma Sheepdog : : Male (neutered) : : Senior : : X-Large
I would love you more than you can imagine.
Sawyer is a big boy who was originally rescued from a home where there were a few too many animals. He is a Maremma Sheepdog, also known as an Italian Sheepdog. This XL boy is a bit...complex, like a fine wine. Sawyer is a senior dog, aged to perfection, that is in his retirement home. While Sawyer enjoys being outside and going on long walks, he was raised in a home as a companion animal and likes to be close to his family. He bonds well with his people and LOVES being petted. He will quietly sidle up and gently nuzzle your hand for some snout scratches (he will even bring you slippers!). Sawyer has only lived in country settings and can be a bit shy and fearful in new situations so patience is needed - he can be quite intimidating barking at strangers and visitors. People also need to respect and understand his "growly side" because that is how he tells you to !stop! what you are doing (like handling his paws). If people don't stop, they might get bit. Sawyer is house trained, and he has lived with other dogs and cats, however he has resource guarding issues towards other animals (meaning that he is very possessive over things he values, like toys, treats, his space and people), so he has his in his own areas to hang out in. Sawyer is not available for adoption at this time, but feel free to contact us to find out more about this special dog.
