Mike is a happy, chill dude estimated at 3-5 years old. He is very sweet, and well-mannered. Mike loves everyone he meets and does not bark often so he isn’t the best guard dog :) Mike is a great traveler so he will make the perfect adventure companion. He is perfectly well-behaved in the house and has free reign all day. He loves sleeping on the couch and is not as sneaky about it as other fosters (he has been caught many times). He walks well on leash but still loves to take time to sniff his surroundings. Mike has clearly been trained before and is freshening up his knowledge of basic commands like sit and stay. He knows what "out" means and will leave the kitchen or other room you are working in to lay in the doorway and stare at you. While Mike loves cuddling, he is still rather independent and will frequently nap in another room. He is great with all the people, children, dogs, and cats he has met. He does not jump or lick and is great about letting small children pet and hug him. He is terrified of cats and will completely ignore them. He loves all other dogs and enjoys being outside more with another dog or his human (he's not one to entertain himself in the yard) but will never pass up an opportunity to roll in the grass. He can be shy with other dogs at first but was playing with a foster sister after just a couple of days. So...if you are looking for the perfect companion, Mike is your guy! He's low energy, gets along with everyone, and is a perfect fit for any family, including those which already have children or other pets.

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.
