  • Age: Adult
  • Size: X-Large 101 lbs (46 kg) or more

Caesar has been doing super with his permanent foster mom. She loves him dearly and has seen him transform into a totally different dog since we first brought him into NEPR. Update on Caesar: Caesar has become comfortable in his foster home and we have decided that he will remain in foster care permanently. Since he has done so well in his current location, and it took him years to get to this point, we feel that giving him a happy life there is best. If you would like to become a sponsor, you can donate for his medicine through our website And his foster mom can send you updates on him. A note from Caesar's foster mom: What happened to Caesar to turn this 5 year old sweet boy into a scared, timid and emotional mess. That is the question we find ourselves asking more times than not when working in rescue. Caesar came into rescue with these issues. He is unable to accept any human contact without shaking and losing bladder control. Every so often he would allow someone to pat him but it was rare and very hard for him to accept. This sweet scared dog was determined not to ever be adoptable and would likely need to be put down unless we find a way of breaking that shell. It has proven to be quite a feat. We were asked to take Caesar to our home in NH where he could start to learn to be part of a pack. He also needed to learn to trust people again. Since coming into rescue, Caesar has been on anti anxiety medicine which keeps him from having a total nervous breakdown. He has been slowly coming around but we have had many steps back in his rehabilitation processes. Once in our home, we found that he was passive when it came to interacting with our other dogs. He has not one aggressive bone in his body and that became evident when we were given a pyr puppy. Caesar adores the puppy and watches how my husband and I interact with the puppy and the other dogs. He is learning to trust very slowly. He will allow me to pat him when I am with puppy by backing up into me and allowing me to rub his back. This has been such a long process but we are hopeful that these small steps will turn Caesar into a dog that is confident and less fearful. We need your help to keep working with Caesar. Please consider helping us to help Caesar by sponsoring him so that we can help pay for his medication. We can do the rest. We have high hopes for Caesar. He deserves to live up to his name. and click Donate

About Northeast Pyrenees Rescue (NEPR)

About Our Rescue Group...

NorthEast Pyr Rescue (NEPR) is a non-profit corporation and an all-volunteer organization dedicated to providing compassionate, coordinated and comprehensive rescue services for Great Pyrenees dogs in our region, the North East portion of the United States.
We have Three Primary Goals:
1.) Rescue and Re-homing –We provide rescue care for Great Pyrenees dogs that are lost, abandoned, neglected or surrendered and place them in loving permanent homes. In many instances the dogs have lived with attentive and loving families but due to difficult circumstances, such as divorce or owner death, the Pyr needs to find a new home. In some cases dogs have been neglected or abandoned and have special care needs.

2.) Education – We teach people about the Great Pyrenees breed characteristics and convey information regarding proper dog selection and the importance of spaying and neutering. Members set up educational booths at county fairs, public events, Pet-Co, live stock events, and dog shows to disseminate information and answer questions. We distribute about 500 educational fliers and pamphlets each year a s well as speak to approximately 1,000 people.

3.) Consultation and Assistance – We work with owners who are experiencing behavioral problems with their Pyrs, connecting them with experienced breeders and owners who understand and help resolve their issues of concern. In most instances, with dedicated owners, we can provide easy solutions so the Pyr can remain in their home forever.

Come Meet Our Pets...

All of our available dogs are located in foster homes with our volunteers. These foster homes are spread across the Northeast. We will arrange for you to go meet any available dogs in their foster home.

Our Adoption Process...
NEPR interviews each applicant and also conducts a home visit to ensure this is the right breed for them. The Great Pyrenees is not a breed for everyone. Education about the breed is key for prospective owners to avoid mistakes in placement. If the placement isn't working, Northeast Pyr Rescue will take the dog back immediately under any circumstances. Adopting a dog locally has several advantages. A volunteer goes to the home of the prospective owners and makes suggestions for the dog's care. Prospective owners can also meet and "interview" dogs at conveniently located facilities or foster homes. Our canine behavioralists specialize in working with Pyrs and are always available for questions or support. We ask for a donation of $25 at the time of the home visit, and then a donation of $350 when a Great Pyrenees is adopted from our rescue.
