Baxter was found with Chester, running on their own out in West Texas.  They were saved by a good Samaritan and brought into rescue, where Baxter is loving his foster home.  He is doing great with the other dogs, and kids, and he is learning how to be crate trained and potty trained, along with walking on a leash.


OUR REQUIREMENTS FOR PUPPY ADOPTION: 1) These puppies are not livestock dogs.  They must be family pets that are allowed inside the home.  2) PUPPIES WILL ONLY BE PLACED IN HOMES WITH YOUTHFUL, PLAYFUL, DOGS. This helps integrate the dog into your household easier by giving the pup a mentor. 3) In addition to the youthful playful dog, someone must also be home at least part of the day.  Please do not apply for a puppy if you are gone 8-10 hours a day.  It is not good situation for you or the puppy. 4) We give preference to applicants with prior Great Pyrenees knowledge/ experiences.  Secure visible fencing required. 5) You must have plan in place to socialize your puppy properly.  6) Please do NOT write us and ask if this puppy is available.  If it is posted, it is available.  BUT, we may be working other applications that came in before yours.  If so, by the time you are approved, the puppy may not be available.  7) The FASTEST way to be considered for a puppy is to fill out an application.  If you write, it will delay your application and put you to the back of the line.  All the persons processing applications are volunteers that have their own dogs, families and job responsibilities.  We do our best to get applications done quickly but applications for adult dogs come before puppy applications.  There is always someone that will want to adopt a puppy.
