Greetings and salutations everyone! My name is Bohdi, which means understanding the true nature of things. It takes many years (well, 3 at least) to achieve this level of enlightenment, but I am happy to share what I have learned about the true nature of things:
--The Buddha says, every living thing has a wish to be happy and avoid suffering — including animals. I know this to be true: I would be truly happy just to be a part of your home and family. And have snacks...lots and lots of snacks.
--The Buddha also says, health is the greatest gift, contentment the greatest wealth, faithfulness the best relationship. I know this to be true: That health thing will be a snap. I LOVE leisurely walks and walk REALLY WELL on a leash. You will become healthier just from me walking you. I’m already a graduate of obedience training and know how to sit and shake hands, too. Contentment? I am thoroughly content to lie down at your feet for belly rubs and lots of cuddles. And faithfulness? Well, I love my people (sometimes a bit too much, perhaps, but you can handle it) and I promise to be ever faithful. What more could you ask for? If you permit, as the Great Pyrenees of health, contentment, and happiness, I will come to rest in your home. Then you can continue on your path to true enlightenment. (But just one other insider’s tip to understanding the true nature of things: It always involves a dog. Just saying.)

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.
