Sally's Story...
Update: Sally passed away this morning, just one day before she was to travel to her new home. We are not sure if the cause yet, but are having a necropsy performed to try to understand why. We're very saddened by her loss.

Hi, I'm Sally. I'm a 1yr old Great Pyrenees. I weigh 65lbs but am very underweight and should weigh closer to 80lbs when I fill out.

I was rescued by my foster family several weeks ago. I had given birth to my puppies under a church out in the country. I tried so hard to take care of them, but I got really sick and weak. My foster mom crawled under the church and rescued my babies when they were just a week old. She fed them with a bottle for a few days while I was at the vet hospital getting better. I was in rough shape!

I have now fully recovered and my pups are strong, healthy, and looking for new homes. It's my turn to find a new home, too!

I'm a very sweet girl and was even sweet when my foster parents handled my puppies. I didn't mind at all as long as they had an extra hand to pet me with. I love, love being gently stroked on the sides of my face while leaning against someone. Anyone is fair game. I love everyone!

Being a guarding breed, I'm very watchful. My breed is bred to lay with flock of sheep or goats and watch for predators. If we Pyrs see anything amiss, we bark to let the intruder know they've been spotted and should go away. We're gentle giants that do well in even small homes because, although we're big, we like to lay around a lot. Even my puppies play for a short time and then conk out!

I leave the playing and rough-housing to the cat and other dogs in my foster home. I don't mind being around them at all, I just would rather lay and observe. I especially love it when my foster parents sit on the floor with me and stroke my head while I rest my head in their lap.

I do really well in the house. I'm quiet unless I'm in my crate and need to go potty. I'd much rather tell you than have an accident! I have to go out pretty frequently right now because I'm eating and drinking a lot to try to catch up on all the weight I lost. So I'll need someone to take me out often, almost as if I were a puppy, if I'm running loose in the house. I'll be much better when I'm filled out, though!

I like short walks and am perfect on a leash. I never pull at all! I'm not big on romping, playing or jogging, though. I'd much rather lay quietly somewhere near someone who will pet me gently - preferably with my head in their lap or leaning against them. I just love being close.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Sally, a Elmwood 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 Elmwood, or seeking a Great Pyrenees dog from a breeder in Elmwood.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Elmwood 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 Elmwood 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 Elmwood paves the way for another one to be saved.
