NO ONE WANTS US! I have been in the rescue for over a year now and NO ONE WANTS US! I have watched dogs come into the rescue facility and one by one I have watched them leave with new owners and gone to their forever home. I just can’t take it anymore. Two families came today to see all of the dogs and time and time again I heard people say, “not them, I’m not a little dog person”. It makes me so sad. I won’t give up my little friend who needs me. I try to put on a good front, but I am so sad that I cry and get very depressed. The rescue lady will come in and hug and kiss me and pick up my little buddy and love us. She often gives us special treats but, they don’t make up for anyone not wanting us! My heart is so heavy I can barely get up. I just want to lie in the corner and watch all of the people walk past me and reject me. Don’t they understand that I’m a great dog! Can’t they give me a chance to show them how loving I can be? My little friend is a good guy too. He’s ten feet tall in his mind, so he’s really a big dog the way he thinks. The nice volunteer will often take us for a walk after we’ve been rejected by people looking to adopt. She gets us out of the kennel because she knows we enjoy our walks and it cheers us up. I think I will just die of a broken heart and no one will hear it stop beating or care.

My name is Yogi. It was given to me by the rescue group who took me in. The group also took in my best friend named BooBoo who is a terrier mix. We are a bonded pair and inseparable. I look after my little dog friend as he takes refuge under my big white furry cowl and in return my little friend grooms and snuggles me. We are never away from each other. We live, eat and sleep together.

Our story goes like this: By the time the shelter called rescue, time has run out for us. We had a date with death and I feared I would never see my friend again. Not because I was afraid but, because my little friend was terrified. You see that how it works when you are two bonded friends.

We were found wandering when we were picked up. But we were really treated like trash and dumped. I know that we are a most unlikely pair but, love each other nonetheless. When the shelter called rescue to ask if they would take me a 100lb Great Pyrenees and my friend, they agreed. Rescue assumed that when the shelter told them I had a friend that needed help too, they were expecting another Great Pyrenees, perhaps a sister or brother…but NO! My friend is a 13 lbs terrier mix!

I love kids and all kinds of people. My little friend is a typical little dog and you need to get to know him, but he’s sweet too. We’d do best in an adult home where there aren’t little children. We are house broken and very loving. I promise to be no trouble. I’m a kind 5 ½ yr old gentleman and my friend is approx 3 yrs old and has a long life ahead of him.

Everyday I dream of a family of our own. Every night I say my prayers and hope that GOD (Dog spelled backwards) hears me and sends and angel. Please call the rescue 916-791-7580 or petpyrs@surewest.net. You won’t be sorry, I promise!

About Sierra Pacific Great Pyrenees Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

We belong to a breed club and take in Great Pyrenees and Great Pyrenees mix dogs. Once a dog is taken into our program, it is restored to health, brought current on all vaccines, micro chipped, had microscopic fecal exams and treated for parasites and worms and had a heart worm test. If positive they are treated before making adoptable and if negative, they are put on a heart worm monthly preventative as well as a preventative for fleas and ticks. All dogs are groomed prior to adoption and are in good health.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Our pets can be viewed by click the link: https://www.petfinder.com/pet-search?shelterid=CA957 or by visiting our web site www.spgpc. Dogs are housed at our private facility and appointments to view the animals are easily made by calling (916) 791-7580. We are located in Granite Bay, CA which is 23 miles East of Sacramento.
We often frequent adoption events, so dogs can be viewed at those sites when they occur.

Our Adoption Process...

Applicants have to fill out an application. Go to http://www.spgpc.com/adoptionprocess.htm The application consists of 4 pages and 60 questions relating fenced yards, whether they have had this breed before or large dogs. Three references are required, one from their veterinarian, one from someone they've gotten a dog from before (if applicable) and a personal reference. If the application looks good, then we proceed to the references. If the references are good then we schedule a home study to make sure the dogs will thrive in that environment. Finally we engage the applicants into a contract that spell out their responsibility to the dog and us and our responsibility to them and the dog they are adopting. We then assign a mentor to help them through the transition period and a 1 yr membership to the club. Whether they maintain the membership in force or not we are still a resource to them for the life of the dog. And should life happen, we always take our dogs back.
