Brutus's Story...
Brutus is a 2 to 3 year old Great Pyrenees who is a gentle giant. He is great with all people, kids, other dogs, and cats. He does not like being in a crate but is fine having free roam of the house. He is housetrained and is not destructive in any way in the house. This is one calm and mellow guy who enjoys chilling on the floor next to you. Brutus does require a fenced yard and invisible fencing is not an option. Here are a few words from his foster mom:

"Brutus is a very sweet, loving Great Pyrenees that we absolutely adore. He has been a perfect houseguest and is extremely low key. He has been very well mannered, is not a jumper and has been amazing with our 3 and 6 year old children. He loves to play with our golden retriever first thing in the morning and then lounges around the house for the remainder of the day. He is a lounger and loves to just hang out and be with his people. He is not a needy dog but likes to be around his pack.

True to the breed’s nature, Brutus demonstrates many of the characteristics of a GP: kind, gentle, loving and stubborn at times. He needs to be in a house that has experience with large breed dogs, Great Pyrenees would be a plus. He is not a big barker which is unusual for a GP but he will bark when he feels our home is under attack by the nature that surrounds us. Although he is very low key he is very aware of his surroundings and will become alert if the need arises.
When he came to us it was evident he had a very tough life. He was severely underweight, malnourished and scared. He was not used to car rides, going in and outside through a door, being loved. The door terrified him (we think he was outside is whole life). Although he is wonderful with children his ideal home should be with an older family as he is very anxious around new experiences, loud noises, toy helicopters etc. He needs a patient family that will help him adjust to each new experience.

Through his adjustment he never once showed any signs of aggression and his kind temperament has remained consistent since day one. He has shown significant improvement with many of the things he was afraid of when he came to our house. He continues to get more comfortable each day and we are seeing more and more of his wonderful personality shining through.

Brutus has come a very long way in a short period since he joined our family. He is an amazing dog and will be a great addition to the right family. We have loved all of our foster dogs but Brutus has become a very special doggie to us. He is the type of dog that does not come around very often."

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Brutus, a Charlotte 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 Charlotte, or seeking a Great Pyrenees dog from a breeder in Charlotte.

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