Hi there! Can we talk? You might think that’s funny—because I’m deaf. But I mean it—can we talk, because I 'do' know how to communicate. I can “hear” you by reading your face and mom is teaching me hand signals. Cool, huh? not many can learn sign language. And I can converse with you by sitting by your side and keeping you company. Sometimes actions speak louder than words. So we could have all kinds of conversations. My foster mom says I’m super smart, sweet and mellow, and cuddly too. I’d love nothing more than to spend my life with a laid-back family that appreciates me, and a dog buddy to help me hear. Once I meet a foster brother or sister, I take a little time to make up my mind, but eventually I decide they’re fantastic! Cats are okay too; I mean, take ‘em or leave ‘em. Mom also says I’m a “diva”—I’m pretty sure that’s a good thing. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it. So why don’t you start a conversation and we’ll set something up—sound good? I’d love to “chat” with you.
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.
