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.
Meet Buck! Buck is a 6 year old Great Pyrenees who is perfect in every way! He came into rescue and now is living the good life...living indoors and hanging out with his 2 other fur buddies. Buck likes 4 legged canine companions, but we can't say anything one way or the other about cats because we have no experiences to make a judgement there. He's adjusting well to spending a lot of his time inside the house - Buck is pretty smart and has learned house rules quickly, being very comfortable napping on the dog bed, or the carpet. He's a very laid-back guy but if he's sleeping soundly it's best to wake him vocally. It takes Buck a little while to get used to new humans, but once he does, he quickly becomes your white shadow and wants to hang out with you all the time :) He has the GP guarding trait and loves guarding the yard. He's got a very deep, raspy and kind of quiet bark. Buck is doing great and seems to be enjoying his ‘retirement’! His singing voice is phenomenal and will accompany a train's horn without coaxing. Siren's are his next best partner to sing along with :) Buck is very gentle and would be good with other dogs and children. He is a very handsome boy with a gorgeous coat that is now growing in nicely after a visit to an overzealous groomer. Be warned...Buck will quickly steal your heart!

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.
