Facts about Pepin

  • Breed: Great Pyrenees Mix
  • Color: White
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: X-Large 101 lbs (46 kg) or more
  • Sex: Male
UPDATE 7/21: Pepin had a chronic injury to his tail that we spent a long time trying to get cleared up. After much thought and discussion with our vet the decision was made to dock his tail and remove the problem. Pepin is so much happier and that 6 inch tail wags all the time now! His adorable little tail can be seen in the new photos above.

Pepin is a 6 year male and weighs in at 105 pounds. We believe he has a touch of something else in him but he is predominately Great Pyrenees in look, size and personality. Pepin is a well mannered and laid back boy who loves people. He was placed from our program and returned after about six months due to issues with other dogs, which we will be happy to expound on that with interested applicants. Due to this, we believe he would do best as an only dog. Pepin walks great on leash, is housebroken and loves to guard his yard from those pesky squirrels. Pepin has been diagnosed with borderline low thyroid. He take medication at a cost of about 25 cents per day for the low thyroid. Pepin loves tummy rubs and brushing.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Adoptable Great Pyrenees are shown by appointment, usually after a completed application is received and an initial phone interview is conducted.

Our Adoption Process...

Our adoption process includes completing an adoption application, allowing a home/site visit, and if approved for adoption, signing a legally binding adoption contract at the actual time of adoption. Our adoption application can be found on our website at and can be completed on line or downloaded for printing.

The application will ask for a personal reference and the name and phone number of your current and/or past veterinarian. Vet records must verify that pets receive/have received good care, both in the case of illness/ injury and preventative care (vaccinations, etc). Current pets must be up to date on preventative vet care and spayed or neutered (unless there are extenuating circumstances). We will contact you by phone upon receipt of your application but feel free to call or email with any specific questions.

A securely fenced property is required in most cases. Great Pyrenees must be in secure fencing or on leash at all times, for their own safety, as they cannot be reliably trained to a property boundary.

We request of adopters a minimum donation to GPRCI of $200 at the time of adoption to help with some of the vet care expense.
