Important Note

CAERUS is best friends with BABY BEAR. Please adopt both of them so they can stay together!
We're a couple of really great kids! Hi, I'm Caerus (pronounced Care-Us) and I'm a 19th month old German Shepherd and I'm here with my 7 month old baby sister, Bear. We love each other and have been together as long as I can remember. We had it really bad before we came here to rescue. Our living conditions were so bad, we would not have survived them. Thank goodness for the rescue lady who came and took us both. I was so worried that when they put my baby sister, Bear in the van, that they were going to leave me behind because I'm not a Great Pyrenees! I couldn't help it, Ie began to cry and howl. I was so miserable. I looked right into the rescue lady's eyes and she said, "we're gon'na take him too. No one will be left in this hell hole". I guess it really was because we were a mess. We'd been starving and left in the heat with no water, shade or food. We were full of parasites, fleas and tick and the flies had chewed up our ears, noses and skin. But, you should see us now. We have plenty to eat, we're happy and clean and there are no more bugs on us. We are full of love and just give kisses, and kisses and kisses. We enjoy our walks with the volunteers, like riding in the car and would love to have a nice fenced in yard to play and grow up in. Do you think you could love us and take good care of would make our wishes come true. The rescue lady says, "there are angels out there, we just have to find you one." Are you an angel?

About Sierra Pacific Great Pyrenees Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

We belong to a breed club and take in Great Pyrenees and Great Pyrenees mix dogs. Once a dog is taken into our program, it is restored to health, brought current on all vaccines, micro chipped, had microscopic fecal exams and treated for parasites and worms and had a heart worm test. If positive they are treated before making adoptable and if negative, they are put on a heart worm monthly preventative as well as a preventative for fleas and ticks. All dogs are groomed prior to adoption and are in good health.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Our pets can be viewed by click the link: or by visiting our web site www.spgpc. Dogs are housed at our private facility and appointments to view the animals are easily made by calling (916) 791-7580. We are located in Granite Bay, CA which is 23 miles East of Sacramento.
We often frequent adoption events, so dogs can be viewed at those sites when they occur.

Our Adoption Process...

Applicants have to fill out an application. Go to The application consists of 4 pages and 60 questions relating fenced yards, whether they have had this breed before or large dogs. Three references are required, one from their veterinarian, one from someone they've gotten a dog from before (if applicable) and a personal reference. If the application looks good, then we proceed to the references. If the references are good then we schedule a home study to make sure the dogs will thrive in that environment. Finally we engage the applicants into a contract that spell out their responsibility to the dog and us and our responsibility to them and the dog they are adopting. We then assign a mentor to help them through the transition period and a 1 yr membership to the club. Whether they maintain the membership in force or not we are still a resource to them for the life of the dog. And should life happen, we always take our dogs back.
