Hello everybody! My name is Helena; like the Greek goddess. Like my namesake I am stunningly beautiful. I have the purest white fur with lemon colored spots. My beauty is intensified by my black lined eyes and pretty white eyelashes. My foster mom thinks I may be a Pyr/Shepherd mix. I am the shy one of my litter. I tend to hold back and let my sister Athena take charge. I love playing with my brother and sister and all of the other various animals that I live with, so I can go to a home with dogs, cats and kids. I am 40 lbs. at 5 1/2 mos. old, and my foster mom thinks I’ll be about 90 lbs when I am done growing. Are you willing to open your heart and home to me? I promise I will love you with all of my heart and be your own personal goddess!

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.
More Information: Questions? The fastest way to learn more about a dog is to fill out the application form below. If you call or e-mail you are reducing your chances of adopting this animal as we direct our time and energy to first serving those who apply.
