Hello! My name is Sampson T.(my nickname is “Tanner”). I am a very rare mix of Great Pyrenees and Border Collie. You know what that means? I possess qualities of TWO super intelligent breeds! I’m 18 months old and will weigh approximately 65 lbs when I’m done putting on some much needed weight. My foster mom says I am just a love; nothing makes me happier than being with my person (unless it’s playing with my foster brothers and sisters). Although Pyrs are not known for their eagerness to please or desire to do agility, the Border Collie part of me wins out with both. I have great recall and my foster mom thinks I would excel in agility and/or training. I can be a little escape artist though, so I will definitely need a “job” to do to keep me occupied, and a secure fenced yard! Would you like to be my new best buddy to go on adventures with?

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.
