Meet Linus!   This Great Pyrenees boy was born around May 10, 2014.  He is a sweet, active young boy, who loves people and loves to play.   To impress the lady dogs, he even has a gnarly scar on his leg from an early adventure at his foster home (his last, he promised!).

Linus does well with all sizes of dogs, cats, and even chickens!  He would do well, however, in a home with larger children, because he likes to jump up on his foster mom, and she's having a hard time breaking him of it.  He might be a tad too rowdy for the little kids.

Linus does like getting loved on and will let you know if you finish before he's ready for you to finish!

He'd really love to have a doggy companion, but if you promise to be an active parent, he says that you'll make a suitable replacement.

Linus is neutered, microchipped, has all his shots, and is heartworm negative.

If you think you can keep up with this sweet, kiss-giving boy, fill out at application and we'll set up a date!

All of our dogs require secure and VISIBLE fencing.

Adoption Fee: $275
* Note to NW Adopters: The adoption fee does not include the cost of transport.

There are many things YOU can do to help us:
1. Adopt! If this Gentle Giant looks like the one for you, fill out an adoption application today!
2. Foster! This is a temporary commitment that gives all dogs in need the assured time to find the loving home they deserve. Your benevolent decision to foster unquestionably determines whether a loving dog gets to live or die.
3. Donate! Safeguarding these Gentle Giants result in expenses that are in upwards $8/day. If veterinary care is needed, the costs exponentiate to $1,000+ for a single dog. Every penny you donate makes an impact when it comes to vet bills! If you were to make a one-time donation of just $25, you would be adding 3 more valuable days to the life of every rescued dog and provide the chance to find the home they have been waiting for their entire life.

As always, all donations are gratefully accepted.

If you are interested in adopting this dog or need further information, please contact GPRS at or fill out our SHORT application form.

Every dog adopted thru the GPRS program is up to date on all vaccinations, spayed/neutered and on heartworm preventative.
