Our goal is to match our rescued Great Pyrenees with the right home and environment. All of our Pyrenees are fostered in homes so that we may learn all about their temperament and health. In order to match a dog with the right home, we require a completed application for adoption and home visit.

Companion Great Pyrenees must be kept as an indoor pet.
For LGDs, proper fencing and shelter must be provided.
You must provide regular veterinarian care for your Great Pyrenees.

Serving VA, DC, MD, and WV.

Our Adoption Process:

You must be at least 25 years of age.
The adoption application must be filled out by the potential owner – it cannot be completed for another person or as a gift.

Two references and a vet reference will be checked, in addition to a home visit.

Upon adopting, the applicant will complete a Contract for care, and submit an adoption fee for $300 to BRGPRE. The adoption fee helps to cover all of the vet costs. Each dog is updated on vaccinations, dewormed, heart worm checked, tick disease checked, spayed or neutered, and microchipped.

Our Adopted Pets:

We have helped lots of pets connect with loving and caring owners. Check out our adopted pets list!

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog or puppy versus getting dogs for sale or puppies for sale from a dog breeder? When someone is breeding puppies, they are creating new dogs who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog or puppy and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale from a puppy breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog or adopt a puppy at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
