Meet Gwyneth! She also goes by Gwenn. She is petite for a Great Pyrenees, and is what we call a “pocket Pyr,” so small she could fit in your pocket! She is full-grown at about 65 pounds. We estimate her birth date to be around May 18, 2015.
Prior to coming into rescue, Gwyneth had lost much of her lovely fur due to neglect and poor nutrition. Her foster mom has been lavishing her with prime nutrition and lots of loving, and Gwenn is quickly transforming back into her beautiful self. Her coat is quickly getting thicker, longer, and softer.
Gwyneth loves romping and wrestling with other dogs! She gets along great with the big male and female dogs in her foster home. Despite her small size, she has no problems bossing them around. Her best friend in the house is a 6-7 month old pup who is just about her size. She much prefers playing with dogs rather than toys.
Gwyneth will do best with a canine companion to play with and keep her company. She will want to be more of an alpha (boss dog) but not necessarily top alpha if there are multiple dogs.
When play time is over and she’s ready to be inside, she’s about as active as a rug! She loves to laze around the house. She is friendly with people, gives kisses, smiles a lot, and has good house manners. She enjoys attention and is loving but not demanding. She can be shy in some situations when she's not sure about something.
We don’t know if she’s a water dog, but she sure loves running and playing in the backyard mud ponds after it rains! She would probably also enjoy an occasional lively romp in a creek, pond, or lake.
She does well on car rides, so she will be a great companion for you to take on errands, or to the nearest water adventure!
She is not a big barker but will join in if it's a pack group bark! She may be more of a barker/protector when she is in a home with fewer dogs.
Gwenn is okay with the resident cat. She is not overly interested in the pet rabbits.
Gwenn needs a strong owner to keep her in her place if she tries to get bossy. When other dogs are near, she can be protective over her food, and protective over her person while being petted.
All of our dogs require secure and VISIBLE fencing.
Adoption Fee: $300
* 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.
Every dog adopted thru the GPRS program is up to date on all vaccinations, spayed/neutered and on heartworm preventative.
