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.
Lily has one of the most gentle of dispositions and thrives on the companionship of her foster parents. She is named for the perfect white coat she wears, which is soft and silky to the touch. Lily was found with an untreated injury to her back leg and had stopped using it for weight-bearing long before she was brought into rescue. Given the fact she can't tell us about the accident, we will never know for sure what happened to her. Lily recovered quickly from the surgery, and never missed a beat on her dance card without that old messed-up leg. In fact, she lost no time getting back in the groove of play dates with her foster sibs, hurling herself happily around the yard chasing her foster brother, butterflies and stuffy toys. Lily hops up short or long stairways with ease, but appreciates the floors not being too slippery. She has no time for your sympathy, and does not want an ounce of pity. Lily has a constant smile that reflects her inner joy for living, having survived some sort of serious, mysterious accident; the outcome of which could have been much worse than losing a leg. Lily prefers living in the moment, being present in the 'here and now' everyday, which is a good lessson for all of us humans to learn. For Lily, every day is a gift. She teaches by example, and for this reason will be the best of companions. Lily reminds us to live each day to the fullest and for that, SHE is the true gift!

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.
