As the Rolling Stones sing in their song “Angie”...“Ain’t it good to be alive”. Well I sure love to live life to the fullest! I am a girl with places to go and people to see. I am athletic, clever and active. My foster thinks I would excel at agility. Her first clue? Me jumping her fence! I bark at other dogs and chase cats, so I would do best being the star of the show. I have the tendency to jump, so wouldn’t be the best fit with small children or a short fence. When I’m not too busy doing other things, I enjoy walking with my foster mom and getting lots of attention. When I’m tired, I go to my crate and take a nap. I am housebroken, too! My foster mom says my manners need to improve a little, so going to obedience classes would be an activity that my new person and I can do together. I am pure white and have the classic Pyr double dew claws. I'm on the smaller side at 75 lbs but am still a young and growing Pyr with a beautiful white coat. I love to learn and want to please my person, and my smile is as big as the sun!
Angie's not quite two so she has a lot of living to do. Life is interesting and exciting for her; she's playful and wants to check everything out but when things quiet down, she's happy to head back into her crate for some nap time. Angie's on the small side at 75 lbs but she's a growing girl who would love to find her furever family!
NGPR does not adopt dogs to homes with children under 6 years old.
Female Great Pyrenees rarely cohabitate with other females successfully. Our goal is for each adoption to be a permanent placement, therefore homes that already have a female dog are not eligible to adopt a female Pyr.

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.
