Popcorn the Great Pyrenees Lab Puppy-Adopted!

Popcorn is really something, don’t you think? He came to me via the wonderful Amy, who has rescued more than her fair share of neglected, abandoned or unwanted dogs.

In her initial post to me, Amy shared this:

“Popcorn is a 9-week-old Great Pyrenees/Labrador Retriever mix puppy. His parents are owned by migrant workers at an Ocala-area horse farm. A friend of mine rides there and scooped up the entire litter of eight as soon as they could be weaned (she knows how quickly they multiply!). The runt of the litter, Popcorn is now the last man standing and looking for a new home! He’s had his first shots and been wormed. Popcorn is super sweet, very people-oriented, and quite the snuggler. And did I mention he has lovely green eyes? “

Popcorn made the journey from Amy’s home to mine thanks to the wonderful Sarah. She drove there and back again in time to make it to the training session Paul Pipitone held at my house. Did I mention we had over 25 people and 16 dogs here for it? The funny thing is, after everyone left, my daughter saw Popcorn and asked, “Did someone forget their dog?” I guess I forgot to tell everyone in the family he was coming. Oh well. Not the first time that has happened!

Popcorn is as cute as a button with white fur and fawn eye patches. He isn’t shy at all and likes to play with the other dogs. So far we have had no problems with him and my cats, but I haven’t had him loose in the room with they yet. Amy tells me that his parents, although presenting Great Pyrenees and Yellow Lab, are only about 50 pounds. Being the runt of the litter, I’d assume that Popcorn would weigh the same too, but he has some pretty good sized paws on him, so I offer no promises in that area!

With his white coat, fawn patches, pink nose and green eyes, this is a very lovely puppy. I am looking forward to getting to know him better!

Be sure to check out his photo album.

Popcorn is being fostered in Winter Park. If you are interested in adopting him, please review our adoption process, then e-mail
