Pet of the Week

Hello, all my new friends. My name is Trixie, what’s yours? Can you guess what kind of dog I am? If you can’t, you are not alone. I’m a Pyredoodle. That means my momma is a great Pyrenees and Daddy is a standard poodle. Did you know that we Pyredoodles are a rather uncommon breed? I mean, how many standard poodles do you know? For that matter, how many great Pyrenees have you met? And how many love affairs can you imagine there could possibly have been between star-struck lovers of those two breeds, even if it was an arranged marriage, if you know what I mean?

Anyway, we Pyredoodles are very popular among people who know about dogs because of our friendly, sociable personalities, our striking black-on-white good looks, and our versatility, and our intelligence. From Mom, we got the gentle, loyal nature of the great Pyrenees and from Dad we got, well, everything else like our graceful build, our happy and playful personalities and our eagerness to please which makes us so trainable. Best of all, we got relatively non-shedding coats, just like our dad, so some people who are allergic to other dogs won’t be allergic to us.

So if you would like to meet a puppy who is all tricked out with all the best traits, please just get in touch with Helping PAWS and ask for me, Trixie!
