Housebreaking the Great Pyrenees?
I fell in love with a Great Pyrenees I found roaming the streets. The soft white fur, brown soulful eyes and loveable disposition set my little heart a flutter.

We have a fenced in backyard and he's refusing to set foot in the house. We had a burglary a few weeks before that and installed a wireless home security system...

I now KNOW that this was a bad decision, but at the time, I considered her lack of shots to be only a financial inconvenience, not a possible crisis.
