Children in the home must be at least 6 years old.
Previous dog experience is required, preferably large breed.
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.
Cindy Lou is the most precious pup! This friendly girl is guaranteed to win your heart - she is just six months old and is so happy to be in rescue now. She loves to play with her foster brother and bounce around outside with him. Cindy Lou is a confident, beautiful and fluffy girl who will end up being a good size when fully grown. She currently weighs about 65-70 pounds and has a lot of growing to do yet! She is doing great with housetraining when let out at regular intervals and she is crate trained, too. She is also good with kids (she lived with 4 children in her last home). Cindy Lou is learning to play with toys a bit but prefers to play with her dog friends. She loves mealtime and treats! She was interested in sniffing and trying to play with the cat at her foster home, but one good swat on the nose taught her to be respectful :) She is doing well with leash walking and she loves riding in the car...she will jump right in. Like most Pyrenees girls, Cindy Lou is playful but wants to be the queen of the castle! She adores attention and affection from her people. She's currently living in a home with several other dogs and is used to eating in her crate. She did great at the vets and actually enjoyed getting a bath. This is one big sweet pup and she will need a great home who will continue working on her training so she will grow into a great Dog!

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.
