Name:   Everette

Breed:    Great Pyrenees

Approximate Age:  4-5 years

Approximate Weight:   100 lbs

Currently Living at:  Local Foster




Everette is a beautiful female Great Pyrenees .  She was likely not handled much as a working dog so she is a bit reserved at first. Everett will need a patient owner to help this girl realize how great family life is.  Everette isn't super fond of crates so she would like a home where she doesn't have to be crated.  Everette is seeking a quiet home where she can get used to her new routine at her own pace.


Foster update!: Evie is possibly the most gentle, peaceful dog that has ever come into my house.  She's happiest finding a sunny window and snoozing in the suns rays.  Occasionally she does choose to play with my two rambunctious dogs - but typically chooses to walk away and hang with my senior guy.


Evie does spook and startle easily - so finding her a home that is relatively quiet and has a consistent routine is important.  Evie is thriving on the consisent routine of our home.  She has come to expect to go outside for bathroom time at a certain time, playtime at a certain time, meals - everything happens with a strict schedule.  With that we've found her to be approachable and engaged in home life.  She is beginning to seek out attention - doesn't shy from being pet.  But new owners need to understand - Evie needs to trust them before she will engage with them.  She needs to be worked with (ie TRAINED), handled by everyone in the house everyday.  She will not make eye contact with new people and is hand shy with them. Things like grooming are foreign to her and will take more time.


With time, consistency and patience - Evie is a lovely, sweet and funny addition to our house.   I'm greeted every morning by Evie's happy dance - she spins in 360s, stomps her paws with excitement.  She play bows to the other dogs and appears happy to see them.  We've watched over the past few days as she's shown interest in toys, antlers and even asking my kids for a pet or two.  Evie also has the amazing ability to keep a perfect 3 beat canter - so while not a running buddy - for all the power walkers out there she's a great companion.


Now that being said - when she gets spooked - she retreats and hides.  (Its typically from a loud noise - gunshots (country life people), tractors starting, school bus horn)  And when she hides - it's normally in a small space for several hours.  New families should know this and know that she seems to need a few hours alone to self sooth.  She slowly reboots and is back to the quiet and peaceful Evie McChevy.


 I'd love to see her in a home with another dog - I think she prefers the company of mature ones but she's tolerant of the younger pups as well.  She'd also fare better not being left alone for 8 hours a day.  I do not crate her and have had no issues leaving her gated in my kitchen area.  Evie is probably not a first time dog as she requires some TLC to build trust.  She will be a great quiet companion for the right family.

'EVERETTE' needs a loving forever home to lavish love and attention on her. Please open your heart and home to  'EVERETTE'!

About Dogs XL Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Dogs XL is a new “breed” of dog rescue, committed to the philosophy that there is no such thing as a perfect dog or a perfect home. The right dog is out there for everyone who is willing to open heart and home to a canine companion. Dogs XL operates like a social networking service for dogs, designed to match people and pets based on the principles of compatibility and compassion.

As the name implies, Dogs XL specializes in finding homes for large dogs (typically 75lbs+). Large dogs are often first to be put to sleep in shelters because medical treatment and food for large dogs is more expensive than for small dog. Large dogs also take up more space at the shelter and on transports to adoptive families. Although owning a large dog is not for everyone, large dogs have many unique and endearing qualities. Here at Dogs XL, we believe the larger the dog, the more there is to love.

Occasionally, Dogs XL will intervene on behalf of a smaller dog with an XL personality. Dogs XL also works with other local rescue groups to facilitate adoptions to families that might be a better match for a smaller dog.

Dogs XL is an all volunteer, non-profit animal rescue group.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Dogs XL has adoption events on weekends at local pet supply stores in the greater Baltimore area. Schedule of Events is posted on the

Our Adoption Process...

To begin the process, adopters fill out an adoption questionnaire are contacted by an adoption coordinator within 72 hours for an interview. After the initial interview, if the adopter has current or recent pets we call the veterinarian to confirm that they are up to date on vaccinations and spayed/neutered. When possible, a volunteer will schedule a home visit to help advise adopters on how to "puppy proof" the home. Alternatively, the foster family of the dog to be adopted may come to the home to help introduce the dog to its new environment and conduct the home visit simultaneously.

Adoption Fees
Puppies 6 months and under: $350

Adult dogs 7 months to 8 years: $300

Senior Dogs 9+ years: $250

*Adoption fees help cover the cost of transportation to the Baltimore/DC area, boarding, and vetting, including vaccinations, heartworm/Lyme disease testing, flea/tick/heartworm preventative and spay/neuter surgery.
