Reston Pet of the Week: Clifford

Becky's Pet Care

This week’s Reston Pet of the Week is Clifford, a Great Pyrenees-Old English Sheepdog mix who needs a home that can accommodate a big guy. If you are interested in adopting him, please check out his Petfinder page. If you give him a new home, let us know, and you will get some treats and prizes from our sponsor, Becky’s Pet Care.

Here is what the folks at Blue Ridge Great Pyrenees Rescue and Education have to say about him:

Clifford is a 4-5 year old Great Pyrenees/Old English Sheepdog mix. He is so popular he has his own Facebook page.

He was roaming a neighborhood for a long time when a wonderful woman finally just went and picked him up. He had a harness embedded into his coat. The before and after pictures are amazing.

The guardian that took him in had to completely clip him so that he could move. It has taken six months to get him healthy enough to be placed. Clifford is extremely sweet and social. He is doing well with other dogs and people despite his condition when he was rescued.

If you would like to adopt Clifford, please complete an application for adoption at
