Bogart is a handsome boy, a rare & unique Great Pyrenees/Chinese Shar Pei mix, proven with DNA breed-ID testing. His appearance is that of a purebred Great Pyrenees, complete with double dew claws. But his high energy level, naughtiness, & black spots on tongue told us otherwise, thus the DNA test. He's had 5 weeks of intensive training & is a nice boy, well mannered while in hand, all he needs is his very own active family & an alpha person. He's a sweetie around all people, including children & strangers, other large dogs, he loves everyone. Due to his playfulness & high activity level, even though he loves children, he may be too active & strong for small children. We recommend a home with older, larger children until he reaches adulthood at age 3 & is no longer a big, active, puppy. Secure, tall, above ground fencing is required, 6'+ privacy would be optimal. Adopted to inside home with outside privileges. This is a rare, high energy, but social & loveable guy. He is not the typical stoic, laid back Great Pyrenees personality pf low activity. He will chase a kitty, rabbit, chicken, whatever will run if no human is supervising. He is obedient to voice commands when within voice range. A dream on a leash & when traveling. Bogart is a very special furkid that needs a special family. Bogart has a full brother/litter mate in rescue also, Cagney. Bogart is the submissive of the 2 brothers, Cagney is alpha. Significant discount given for adopting both to approved home.
NGPR does not adopt dogs to homes with children under 6 years old.

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.
