Adopted: Nevin and Natalie

Hi! We are Nevin and Natalie! We are a bonded pair (maybe daddy and daughter?) and are the most special pair of dogs imaginable. Really.

Quick Fact Sheet: Breed: Both purebred Great Pyrenees dogs Age and Sizes: Nevin is about 4 years old and about 85 pounds. Natalie is about 2 years old and about 90 pounds.

Nervous with the small dogs in her foster home; did fine with the dogs with whom she was kenneled at the KY shelter. Great with the 8 year old in her foster home Not yet cat tested.
