Children in the home must be at least 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.
What is the best way to describe Emilie?
Emilie is: Happy. Young. Silly. Curious. Smart. A Great Companion.
At two years old, Emilie is full of love and life. She is a Pyr/Lab mix, and the Lab’s sunny disposition is apparent in her behavior. Emilie’s personality shines through when she is playing chase and tug of war with her foster siblings or when she is tossing her stuffed animals in the air to catch and shake them. Her goofiness is evident when she puts both paws in the water to get a drink from the outdoor water fountain :) Emilie’s beauty is on display when she lounges outside in the nice weather. Whether she is playing, goofing, or lounging, Emilie is always happy. And, one thing is for sure, Emilie is always smiling...what a combination when a gal has beauty, personality, and brains! And boy does Emilie have brains. She is a smart girl with a talent for picking up the right behaviors. In the short time that she has been with her foster, she has learned her name, the ‘sit’ command, and proper etiquette when walking on a leash. Emilie is still perfecting leash walking, and she is making great progress. Using a crate is a-okay with Emilie as she is crate trained. Digging is not particularly interesting to Emilie, but like most Pyrs, she does enjoy barking at unfamiliar sounds. At times, she can be a moderate barker.
Emilie loves meeting new people, and she plays well with kids. Due to her size, it is better for her to be with older kids who are not easily knocked over. Emilie gets along nicely with other dogs, but she would prefer to be in a home without cats as she tends to enjoy various cat chasing sports. The perfect home for Emilie will include tasty, soft training treats because she seems to be treat motivated. She would enjoy a large yard for sunbathing and a secure, tall fence. Emilie has not been known to run, but she is a rather curious gal who may not be able to turn down temptation if it were presented.
So if you are looking for a splash of happiness in your home then Emilie is the girl for you! Fill out an adoption application today.

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.
