I found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.


I am already neutered, housetrained, purebred, a special needs pet, in need of an experienced adopter, up to date with shots, good with dogs, and good with cats.

Bert is a a handsome young male, not yet 2 years old and tall enough to effortlessly lay his chin on your kitchen counter. He was raised inside with a cat and small dog, and is house trained. Bert's special need is due to his personality. He is skittish, quite shy with new people and very afraid/untrusting of men. He likes and makes up with women pretty quickly. He sounds the alarm when he see someone new and can sound pretty intimidating (like all Great Pyrenees), but is not aggressive and will always try to retreat. He has never even raised a lip at the vet, groomer or here at the rescue even when very frightened. Once he trusts you he is a big wonderful goof who likes to play with a frisbee. He enjoys playing and hanging out with his new friend Luna, another rescue here at GPRCI.
Bert will need an adopter willing to work with him on socialization and conquering some of his fear but also willing to accept him for who he is. He may never be a social butterfly but he will love his person with every ounce of being.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Bert ADOPTION PENDING, a Bloomington Great Pyrenees dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Great Pyrenees for sale in Bloomington, or seeking a Great Pyrenees dog from a breeder in Bloomington.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Bloomington already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Bloomington breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Great Pyrenees breeders who help with Great Pyrenees rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Bloomington paves the way for another one to be saved.
