Meet Aspen, a five year old Pyr as sweet as he is handsome. In his adoring foster mommy’s own glowing words, “He is wonderful!!” Fluffy, jovial Aspen loves to be pet--near constantly and by loved ones and strangers alike--and is ever gentle and patient, even when getting bathed. He is a good eater, car rider, and leashed walker. And if all these positive traits weren’t enough, Aspen also gets along with all other dogs, big and small. He isn’t much of a frolicker, however, and prefers to just give a few sniffs to his canine comrades, then focus his attention on their owners in hopes of getting some affection. He is learning new commands, like how to sit and stay, and, though he found his bark (loud and deep), he doesn’t get jumpy when excited. This well- mannered cutie pie is the perfect companion, and he can’t wait to meet his forever family, who will surely be hitting the doggy jackpot in adopting him!

NGPR does not adopt dogs to homes with children under 6 years old.

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 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.
