Hi, my name is Elinor! I came into rescue with my 5 sisters and 2 brothers. My foster Mom and Dad say that I am a very special and loving little girl. I am always trying to get my foster Mom or Dad to hold me and give me tummy rubs. My siblings and I play chase and wrestle and explore the yard. I am inquisitive and like to explore new territory. I went for my first walk on a leash today and I did really good! I especially enjoy climbing on the wood pile, carrying sticks around, hiding under the Blue Spruce and exploring along the fence line. My roommate and I are keeping our crate clean. My foster Mom cuddles with me and tells me stories about the fur-ever home that I will have...possibly children to play with, other dogs to become friends with and play with, and a home where I can lavish everyone with my love and devotion. Is that fur-ever home going to be yours?

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.
