Hi! My name is Captain although that is misleading. I am actually more like Cookies and Cream ice cream, black and white and VERY sweet! Now that I think about it, I am even better than ice cream because I don’t come with all those calories, just sweetness. I am a complete lover. I love being by your side and would be happy to be cuddled and be petted all day although I like to play with toys and other dogs out in the yard as well. I am really looking for someone to bond with and shower my endless love on. I am a submissive male and great with other dogs but I love people most of all. Cats may be an issue. I like to chase them although I do not hurt them. A dog-savvy cat that will whack me on the nose might be just the thing I need. I am a gentle soul who just wants to please and would love to spend my days learning to how to best please you.

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.
