Hi everyone, I’m Sheba, but my foster mom thinks I’m an angel, so that’s what she calls me – Angel. I’m only about 1, or maybe 2 years old, but I’ve seen lots in that time. Or, rather, I should say I have 'not' seen lots. I haven’t had that much contact with people—but I really want to. I just don’t know how to get started yet. I need a mentor, someone to show me the ropes. Could that be you?
Let me tell you more about me, so you can decide if we’re meant to be. I’m very quiet, and mom tells me I’m meek and humble. I won’t bother you, but I love to be petted (especially belly rubs) and I absolutely adore treats. Those are really cool. I also love my foster brothers; one is big old hound dog and the other one is a medium-sized dog. Sometimes we play but mostly we just hang out. But I’m not much of a barker so crossed double dew claws that the three of us are enough to scare off predators, like marauding squirrels. I don’t really like to be kept in the kennel, but I do like to ride in the car and will ride around in a crate if we need to go somewhere. I’m just a really sweet girl who wants a family of her own. And there’s no time to waste; I’ve got some years to make up. To meet me, please give us a call. I’m counting on 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.
