KEEBLER

Male 

Great Pyrenees mix

1.5 years old


UPDATE 2/23/15: Not all adoptions work out.... Keebler is back with us and looking for a slighly different home than before. He is a year and a half old and according to his DNA results he is Great Pyrenees, Blood Hound, Boxer and Entlebucher Mountain Dog! He is 85 pounds of lap dog if you let him be. He has protective qualities and prefers a home without a lot of activity as it causes him stress. He is very good with other dogs of all ages and sizes. He is not trustworthy with cats. For a young dog, he is mellow and prefers to lounge around the house and yard. He will work for love and affection and is quite the snuggler!

WHAT IS THE POWDER PALS PROGRAM??
Powder Pals is a cooperative program between New Hope and the Oregon Department of Corrections Powder River Correctional Facility in Baker City, OR in which inmates train dogs to correct behavioral deficiencies, including dogs that have been neglected and abused.  This gives an otherwise difficult-to-place dog, often facing euthanasia, a chance for a future and placement into a loving home.  
Program costs include acquisition of infrastructure to house and handle dogs, medical and temperament testing, training materials, and daily operating expenses.  The program is operated by volunteers, including experienced dog trainers who volunteer to teach inmates dog training, handling and leadership skills.
