Meet Big John, a sweet, gentle, and loving goofball who adores everything and everyone! He is a peppy guy who wiggles with excitement when he walks and is quick to give his people gentle kisses. He also loves to cuddle! According to his foster, Big John is perfect, and wouldn’t hurt a flea. He gets along with other dogs, and, though he is ever affable, will chase his feline friends. He knows the command ‘no’ and is an excellent listener, though he shouldn’t be placed with little kids, given his bubbly mannerisms and big frame. To this point, he is learning not to jump up on people when happy. Big John and his foster have just one wish this season, and that is for Big John to be home with his doting forever family in time for the holidays!

NGPR does not adopt dogs to homes with children under 6 years old.

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 to learn more about us, our mission and our breed.
More Information: Questions? The fastest way to learn more about a dog is to fill out the application form below. If you call or e-mail you are reducing your chances of adopting this animal as we direct our time and energy to first serving those who apply.
