These girls check all of the boxes! Halley is about 8 years old, Nova is reported to be 10 years old. The pair are lovely Great Pyrenees and Golden Retriever mixes, both weighing in at about 85 pounds. From the sounds of it, the girls have all of the best attributes of both breeds. They get along with other dogs, cats and are good with children that treat them with kindness.

Nova and Halley would be happiest in a home with a large, fenced yard. They loved to explore but should not be allowed to roam and they should not be expected to live outdoors. The pair are house dogs with great manners. Currently they go to doggy daycare during the day. Nova and Halley have been able to stay inside their home at times when their owner leaves the house. The girls do well going for car rides,  they enjoy being with their people and with each other. They sound like such a wonderful pair!

Combined, they are a lot of dog! Each girl will pull on lead so best to have 2 people walking them that can manage their strength. We are told they will bark to alert you that there is a visitor to the house. They can manage stairs now but as time goes on, that could be difficult. One must consider this when welcoming a large breed dog into their family. They will not be easily carried up and down stairs if there comes a time when they can no longer climb them.

If you are ready to commit to a pair of large breed senior dogs in need and can afford their lifelong veterinary care, grooming and good quality dog food, Halley and Nova could be the perfect pair for you!

Nova and Halley are located in Seattle, WA. For contact information please email:
