Facts about Bridgette

  • Breed: Great Pyrenees/Australian Shepherd Mix
  • Color: White
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Large 61-100 lbs (28-45 kg)
  • Sex: Female
Bridgette is a 8 year old female Great Pyrenees mix. She is great with people, house trained, walks well on leash and rides well in the car. We are looking for an only pet home for Bridgee or a home with only a male that will feed separately. Although she would not match up with another female she does get along with most males and especially young males. She is playful with and quite tolerant of young males. She is not good with cats and small dogs. Bridgette was diagnosed as "low thyroid" and takes medication for that daily at a cost of about 25-30 cents per/day. This mature but still playful girl can be a wonderful companion for someone. She is smart and really very obedient for a Great Pyrenees which we credit to the herding breed we think she is mixed with :) She is 80 pounds and not quite as heavy coated as a Pyr so her coat should be easier to maintain.

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 www.gprci.com 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.
