It's Wet Nose Wednesday, brought to you by Shipton's Big R, and this week we're featuring a Great Pyrenees mix named Bjorn. He's 6-years old, and after spending some time at a foster home, is waiting to be adopted at the Yellowstone Valley Animal Shelter.

Here's what the Yellowstone Valley Animal Shelter has to say about Bjorn:

Bjorn originally came to the shelter in rough shape and spent the last several weeks in a foster home.  His wounds, likely caused by untreated allergies, are now healed and he’s ready to find his fur-ever home!  Bjorn is the epitome of an old soul – he’s quiet, calm, and sweet.  He would especially love a new home where he can get all of the butt scratches and treats that his heart desires!  His foster mom reported that he interacts well with everyone he meets and is “incredible and well-behaved”.
