It's hard to "sneak" when you're a Great Pyrenees -- sheer size makes you inevitably conspicuous -- but Rocky wandered up on someone's property one day and by the time the homeowner's noticed him, he'd introduced himself very nicely to all of their dogs, greeted all the humans with a smile, and made himself right at home! He had such a good time with all of them (and they with him), that they let him stay while they tried to find Rocky's real family. After weeks of searching, they realized that no one was looking for him, and as much as he was blended right in, they just weren't prepared to keep this giant boy so they sought us out to help Rocky find a family who will appreciate this true Gentle Giant.

Rocky is a super friendly, loving boy who loves to stay by someone's side. He quickly became the volunteer favorite because he's so laid back and yet so social in the nicest way. He loves to be with people and he loves to be with dogs, but he's also happy to occupy himself by watching others play, or lumbering around checking out his surroundings. He's gotten along with all the dogs: male, female, big, small, spunky and cranky. Rocky is just happy to feel a sense of belonging -- this boy takes loyalty to his pack seriously! We think Rocky is a young adult in the 2 - 3 year old range. At nearly 80 pounds he's still got filing out to do, and he's a very healthy boy. Great Pyrenees are prone to wandering so keep that in mind when considering him. If Rocky is your champ, please visit www.pinkshelter.org for more information about the adoption process or click here for our online application. Full vetting and neuter included in his $350 adoption fee. Transport fee is additional $150. IF YOU HAVE AOL or YAHOO PLEASE CHECK YOUR SPAM FILE FOR OUR RESPONSE

About Little Pink Shelter - CT Chapter

About Our Rescue Group...

Little Pink Shelter is a registered 501(c)3 charity. All donations are tax-deductible.

When I started The Little Pink Shelter back in 2008, my mission was to help shelter dogs win their fight for a second chance at life; as a breast cancer survivor, I knew all too well the sweetness of that victory. Since founding The Little Pink Shelter, I have placed over 2,700+ dogs and puppies into loving homes.

The Little Pink Shelter is considered more of a "boutique" rescue, focusing solely on making an adoption successful. Working closely with select shelters and rescues in Arkansas where the pet overpopulation continues to be out of control, my colleagues and I are careful to temperament test each dog so we can understand the type of home to which it will be best-suited.

Too many wonderful dogs are put down each week because of lack of space, lack of funding and a widespread disregard for spaying/neutering and responsible ownership. The plight of these dogs and the quest to find each one a loving home is what fuels us every day.

Come Meet Our Pets...

We do not have a facility in Connecticut, so you can only visit The Little Pink Shelter on the internet. Our dogs and puppies are usually fostered in the south and the overwhelming majority of them are adopted out before they arrive so they can go right home after transport and begin bonding with their new forever families! Check out the "Love Fests" Albums on our Facebook Fan Page!

We are always in search of short term foster homes up here in Connecticut and the surrounding states!!! If you're not ready for a full 15+ year commitment, or if you have always wanted to help in some way, please consider short-term fostering a dog or puppy for us! Write us for more info!

Our Adoption Process...

The first step in the process is submitting an online application located through a link in each pet's description, or from our website at www.pinkshelter.org under the "How to Adopt" tab. Whenever possible we like to begin review with a vet reference. After that, we will be in touch to set up a lengthy phone interview where each of us has the opportunity to ask all our questions of the other. Home visits are at our discretion. Once approved, there is a contract and transport is arranged if necessary.
