Hi, I'm Samson, a 3 ½ year old purebred Great Pyrenees. I am the protector of the yard...I do not want any strange leaves or birds to come in there. The three resident dogs at my foster home help me to defend the yard from these intrusions. I get along with them, but would really like to have a yard of my own to protect. Sometimes, after a lot of exercise, I just go to my crate to take a nap - it’s either that or the couch. I am good on a leash, but still need some work on the other commands. I love to go for rides, especially to Tractor Supply, where I can visit the dog food aisle and sniff all the food bags. I like my foster home, but am really looking forward to a fur-ever home of my own!

About Us: National Great Pyrenees Rescue (NGPR) is not a shelter. We are a not-for-profit, tax-exempt coalition of Pyr rescuers and rescue groups. We save Pyrs and Pyr mixes across the country and place them in approved foster homes so we know how they will interact with your family. Please consider adopting or fostering. Every dog who is fostered or adopted makes room for another Pyr coming out of a kill shelter. Prior to adoption, NGPR dogs are fostered for a minimum of two weeks (usually more), spayed or neutered and fully vetted. Dogs coming from out of area are certified with a USDA health certificate before going to their new homes. Our rescuers adhere to the highest placement standards and will take back any dog whose adoption does not succeed. Visit www.nationalpyr.org to learn more about us, our mission and our breed.
