Elika the dog needs a new loving home in the Calgary area

Meet Elikadura, affectionately known as Elika, the majestic Great Pyrenees with a heart as resilient as a blizzard! Elika earned his name after arriving at the shelter during frigid temperatures, displaying the typical Great Pyrenees love of the cold. Despite his initial bashfulness, Elika is a gentle giant who, with a bit of coaxing and tasty treats, reveals his softer side.

As a stray, Elika’s past remains a mystery, but his future is full of possibilities. Transitioning to indoor comforts, this Pyrenean beauty is learning the ropes, slowly but surely. Elika’s grooming needs are as unique as his name – his luxurious coat requires regular attention to maintain its beauty and health.

Elika yearns for an active home that understands the physical and mental enrichment vital for his breed. Positive reinforcement will be the key to unlocking Elika’s full potential. If you’re ready to embrace the warmth behind the blizzard, consider welcoming Elika into your heart and home. This regal companion promises loyalty, love, and a touch of winter magic.
