Tawny is an owner surrender to GRRNT. There is some concern that Tawny may have problems with her hips. We are consulting the orthopedic specialist to find out if she needs anything done to help with that. We will have more information about her soon.


PROFILE

Tawny is a Golden Retriever/Great Pyrenees mix, and she definitely has characteristics of both breeds. She is a very pretty blond, she is lithe, and has long legs. Tawny is about 11 months old so still has some of the puppy antics in her, but is more than happy to settle in for a good snuggle, and nap. She kind of likes the pool. She will allow you to pull her in, and will swim a bit but she prefers to float on the pool float.

Tawny is crate trained, and is house trained, but we have lost a couple of slippers to her. She loves her bones, and toys. She is very food motivated, but will wait her turn to be fed, (she is number 6 so this is not an easy feat for a pup), and is very gentle taking treats. She plays very well with the other dogs but at the vet she has shown she is not really keen on smaller dogs or cats.

She does have some hip dysplasia. She has been seen, and evaluated by a surgeon, but he says that it is not bad enough at this time to warrant surgery. She is asymptomatic now (meaning it does not impair her mobility in any way, and it is not giving her any pain), so he does not feel it would be appropriate to put her through a rough surgery. The way her hip is formed it may or may not give her problems in the future. The best thing for her is someone who will walk her, but not involve her in any high impact exercise, keep her slim, and keep her on joint supplements for life.

Foster mom thinks Tawny would do great in a home with other large dogs, and kids would be great too. She is a people lover, and is a giver of hugs (which we have been trying to discourage but…), so larger kids would be better just so she doesn’t knock them over. Someone is going to be very lucky to get this girl as she is a complete package.


UPDATE

9/15/18 Tawny saw the orthopedic specialist this week, and they determined that she does not require any treatment for her hips at this time. She is asymptomatic now (meaning it does not impair her mobility in any way, and it is not giving her any pain), so he does not feel it would be appropriate to put her through a rough surgery. The way her hip is formed it may or may not give her problems in the future. The best thing for her is someone who will walk her, but not involve her in any high impact exercise, keep her slim, and keep her on joint supplements for life.
