Peka is simply stunning! This girl is striking with her speckled coat and black and white markings, and she has the sweetest temperament! Peka is a two year old Great Pyrenees mix, and has been fostered with and does well with kids, cats, small and large dogs, and other animals - she likes pretty much everyone! She hopes to be a beloved indoor pet, but she does love being outdoors and it would be her dream come true to find a home with a large fenced area for her to play, wander, and relax in the sun. In her foster home, she did well with house-training and did not have accidents inside. She is calm, mellow, and just wants to be where her people are. She can't wait for a home that will give her doting attention -- she could get brushed for hours! Are you looking for a gentle beauty to add to your family? Look no further than easy-going Peka. She can't wait to join you!

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.
