Dog of the Day: Shadow from Arizona Humane Society!



Calling all big dog lovers!Shadow is larger than life with colossal size paws, a massive body, and a heart that is bigger than the world.

This four-year-old Great Pyrenees and Alaskan Malamute mix arrived at the Arizona Humane Society because…you guessed it… he was too big and the landlord didn’t approve.

Shadow displays the best of both the Great Pyrenees and the Alaskan Malamute breeds. He is extremely loyal and devoted, well-mannered and dignified, and intelligent. He will do anything for a faithful human friend that he loves and respects.

Although Shadow is gigantic, he is a gentle giant who is extremely laid-back and mellow. He doesn’t ask for much from his new family; just a warm place to call home with a very large doggie bed, occasional walks and an endless amount of love.

Shadow is past that rambunctious “puppy stage,” and he isn’t as rowdy as he once was, however, he still enjoys a daily promenade around the neighborhood where he can get some fresh air and explore. He likes napping in a grassy and shaded yard on a nice cool day, but when it is warm outside this fur-ball would much rather take a long nap on the cool tile floor inside.

Since Shadow is such a big dog, a dog introduction is highly recommended to ensure that your current canine gets along with a massive dog. It is always a good idea to bring the whole family (including the kids) down to the shelter to mingle with Shadow to be sure that he will blend in with the family. He hasn’t been around cats, and he will need a slow introduction.

You can adopt Shadow NOW at the Arizona Humane Society’s Nina Mason Pulliam Campus for Compassion, 1521 West Dobbins Road in Phoenix. His adoption fee is just $100. This fee includes his neuter surgery, vaccinations, a colorful collar and leash, an AHS I.D. tag, and a free follow-up veterinary examination.
