Ducky, Anatolian shepherd and Great Pyrenees mix
Ducky is a male Anatolian shepherd and Great Pyrenees mix in the care of Pet Matchmaker Rescue.
Ducky is a lovely family dog, and children will love him. His ideal forever home would be a cat-free environment. He's already neutered and vaccinated. He's mastered his house-training etiquette.
Notes from Ducky's caretakers:
Ducky is a playful and super unique one to two year-old Anantolian/Pyrenees mix who loves people and is such a big goofball. He loves to play chance, and he's super smart and knows basic commands. He is hit or miss with other dogs, so ideally a home with no other dogs would be great. He could go to a home with a beta dog because Ducky likes to be in charge. He is crate trained and knows how to use a doggy door. He loves water and would love to have a pool or beach access.

Little Titus will get along great with other dogs and cats. He's already house-trained. He has had all his shots.
Here's what Little Titus' friends at H.A.L.T. (Helping Animals Live Tomorrow) think of him:
We love this guy...he is on the brink of being a senior and deserves to find a forever home at his age. He has a pug personality, which makes him independent and ornery. (But not too bad) . He actually is quite a lover once he settles in and knows you. He is also pretty unassuming. He doesn't demand much and is on the quiet side.
