Snow is a Great Pyrenees rescue who was born February 28, 2008. She was brought to IPPL on January 13, 2011. She is a sweet and lively dog who loves chasing squirrels (we think she is helping keep the critters away from our gibbons’ lunch buckets!). She settled down well into the routine here and frequently accompanies our caregivers on their rounds.
Snow has the habit, typical of her breed, of barking at large birds. Since Great Pyrenees were bred to guard livestock, this trait was useful for keeping large predatory birds away from vulnerable lambs and kids. Thanks to Snow, our gibbons will always be well protected from crows!
