Meet Dash! This boy is the best of all worlds!

Dash is a 7 month old Lab/ Great Pyrenees mix. Although he is still very much a puppy, he is on track to be a pretty big boy, a Gentle Giant! Dash is currently about 60 pounds (and still has some growing to do).

Dash was part of an “oops” litter. His Mom is a beloved pet, and we are fairly certain which handsome stranger is his dad. They were accepted into foster care when they were weaned from mom, and he was allowed a lot of time to socialize with his siblings. He’s good with other dogs.

Dash is not very mouthy. He will bark when a stranger comes up, but certainly NOT in an aggressive way. Great Pyrs are guard dogs by disposition, so he will alert you (with a bark) when something is unfamiliar. He will let you know there’s something YOU might want to go check out/ be aware of.

At 7 months old, Dash gives you all the benefits of adopting a puppy without some of the challenges. He’s lost some of the manic puppy energy, but he is still ready and eager to romp and play with you, go on hikes, explore the neighborhood. He will need exercise. If you have a fenced in yard, don’t be surprised if he “walks the perimeter” many times a day while you are out there with him. He’s just making sure all is well!

Dash’s foster mom has worked hard to make sure he’s ready to be part of a family. He walks well on a leash, and has taken many trips out in public (his FAVORITE place is the pet supply store). He is calm and observant and will make an excellent partner in running errands (where dogs are welcome) with you!

Dash has already been neutered, and he tested negative for heartworms! He should be kept on heartworm preventative (as should all dogs) to keep him healthy for his whole life. His brothers and sisters who have found homes have all blended into various types of families very well! He has not been around cats.

ATTENTION PUPPY ADOPTERS:  You will be required to attend training/behavior classes with your new dog unless you are experienced dog owners and your adoption coordinator is comfortable with your experience.  This requirement is for the benefit of you and your puppy so if you experience behavior issues you have a point of contact.  

PLEASE - Think long and hard before adopting a puppy - consider the lifestyle change this puppy will come with - he cannot be crated for more than 3-4 hours at a time until he’s older, puppy proofing your home will be necessary, puppies scratch and nip so if you have small children, can they handle this?? Training will be so important in this puppy’s life, do you have the time??

Please review this checklist for socializing puppies - do you have the time - ask yourself before adopting.


Paws New England is a foster-based rescue - our dogs reside in various locations throughout the south and New England.  

Adoption donations cover pre-adoption vet costs (including vaccinations, spay/neuter when age appropriate, and heartworm testing/treatment when necessary), a microchip, and transportation to New England if necessary.

Donations for our young, healthy puppies and dogs support their fellow canines of advanced age or suffering from injuries and abuse whose donations are reduced but whose veterinary costs are typically much higher. We appreciate your understanding that your newly adopted dog will help others in need.
