Ruff Ruff! My name is Gumbo
|Size:||X-Large 101 lbs (46 kg) or more||Sex:||Male||ID#:||4255433-NGPR-0481|
I am already neutered, purebred, up to date with shots, not good with kids, good with dogs, and not good with cats.
Gumbo such a handsome boy - he loves people and just adores attention. He likes to be brushed and will try to crawl into your lap for a cuddle. Gumbo enjoys regular walks and does nicely on a leash - he LOVES car rides :) This poor boy was left tied to a tree after his owner died. The âÂÂfamilyâÂÂ said they were going to let the neighbors or animal control come and shoot him, but fortunately a good Samaritan came and scooped him up. Gumbo hasnâÂÂt wasted his time in rescue and has worked with a trainer who has taught him how to pull a cart. Gumbo is a wonderful boy who would do best with an experienced dog owner who can learn to love and trust. He's a special boy and is ready for his forever home!

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.
