Hi everyone! I’m Magnolia (nicknamed “Maggie”), and I’m kinda new to this foster thing, so my foster family is showing me the ropes, so to speak. And when I say “new,” I mean it. My dad thinks this is probably the first time I’ve been around people much, because everything is so new. So far, so good. Dad is helping me to understand what a “leash” is and that the hose and sprayer really isn’t a giant snake with a head. But one thing he doesn’t have to teach me is how to love people—I know that already. Dad tells me all the time how sweet I am, and how nice it is that I don’t jump up on people (apparently, people don’t like that). Once I know you a little bit, I’m your best friend, though I may take a little time to warm up. I’m a big girl, nearly as tall as my foster brother (and he’s a whopping 118 pounds) but I’m just about 90 pounds, so I need some help gaining weight. (I bet lots of people would like to say that, wouldn’t they?) We play—which I adore, but sometimes he gets a little cranky. Well, that’s okay. I’ve been around cats, and honestly don’t give a fig about them but they hiss and spit at me; well, you know cats. Wouldn’t you like to meet me? I hope so! Please get in touch and let’s have a play date!

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.
