Millie and Milo are a young, bonded pair of purebred Great Pyrenees who were found wandering in the woods early this summer by two good samaritans. These two love people and are extremely affectionate, ride well in carriers in the car, and love to play with toys and tennis balls. Millie is afraid of thunderstorms and guns, but Milo seems fine with anything. Both are patient for grooming and nail clipping. Milo tested positive for Heartworm, was treated with immiticide in July and has since tested negative. Leash training is in progress, but since they are being kenneled outside, housetraining is unknown, but is usually a quick learn for pyrs. As of 11/2012, Millie weighs 75 lbs, Milo 86 lbs; they will probably grow for another year. After being shaved for the summer, their fur is growing back into full, beautiful pyr coats.
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.
