Facts about Sweetie Pie - NY

  • Breed: Great Pyrenees
  • Color: White
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: X-Large 101 lbs (46 kg) or more
  • Sex: Female
Sweetie Pie 6 years old. She wants to be loved and loves to cuddle. She is protective of those she likes. She just met Gail in the picture that day and was being a perfect Pyr for her. She was used for breeding on a farm. She is not good with most dogs and the ideal home would be an only dog. NO INVISIBLE FENCING. This breed needs a fenced area (not necessarily your whole yard) and may NOT be off leash as they wander. The application process is to go to our website and fill out an adoption application form. Then a volunteer in your area will contact you to come meet you. After the home visit the adoption coordinator will put you in contact with the foster family of the dog(s) you are interested in. We do not have a kennel in Lee, Mass.When you meet the dog if there is a connection then you will fill out an adoption contract and take you new family member home. The adoption fee is $350 and is payable the day of the adoption in check or money order.

No Invisible Fences. They do not keep most Pyrs in and they do not keep people or other animals out of your yard. Pyrs are guardians by nature and could take the intruder as a threat. This is not a Golden Retriever. it is a Great Pyrenees.

About Northeast Pyrenees Rescue (NEPR)

About Our Rescue Group...

NorthEast Pyr Rescue (NEPR) is a non-profit corporation and an all-volunteer organization dedicated to providing compassionate, coordinated and comprehensive rescue services for Great Pyrenees dogs in our region, the North East portion of the United States.
We have Three Primary Goals:
1.) Rescue and Re-homing –We provide rescue care for Great Pyrenees dogs that are lost, abandoned, neglected or surrendered and place them in loving permanent homes. In many instances the dogs have lived with attentive and loving families but due to difficult circumstances, such as divorce or owner death, the Pyr needs to find a new home. In some cases dogs have been neglected or abandoned and have special care needs.

2.) Education – We teach people about the Great Pyrenees breed characteristics and convey information regarding proper dog selection and the importance of spaying and neutering. Members set up educational booths at county fairs, public events, Pet-Co, live stock events, and dog shows to disseminate information and answer questions. We distribute about 500 educational fliers and pamphlets each year a s well as speak to approximately 1,000 people.

3.) Consultation and Assistance – We work with owners who are experiencing behavioral problems with their Pyrs, connecting them with experienced breeders and owners who understand and help resolve their issues of concern. In most instances, with dedicated owners, we can provide easy solutions so the Pyr can remain in their home forever.

Come Meet Our Pets...

All of our available dogs are located in foster homes with our volunteers. These foster homes are spread across the Northeast. We will arrange for you to go meet any available dogs in their foster home.

Our Adoption Process...
NEPR interviews each applicant and also conducts a home visit to ensure this is the right breed for them. The Great Pyrenees is not a breed for everyone. Education about the breed is key for prospective owners to avoid mistakes in placement. If the placement isn't working, Northeast Pyr Rescue will take the dog back immediately under any circumstances. Adopting a dog locally has several advantages. A volunteer goes to the home of the prospective owners and makes suggestions for the dog's care. Prospective owners can also meet and "interview" dogs at conveniently located facilities or foster homes. Our canine behavioralists specialize in working with Pyrs and are always available for questions or support. We ask for a donation of $25 at the time of the home visit, and then a donation of $350 when a Great Pyrenees is adopted from our rescue.
