Phoebe is a young great pyrenees/labrador retriever. We have placed many 'pyradors' and they have a wonderful temperament; the calm demeanor of the great pyr and the playfulness of the labrador. Phoebe came from a dismal situation. She had had no vaccines or vetting of any kind. A son who travels for a living bought her for his elderly mother to protect her. When she became too large for her to handle, they tied her to a tree in the yard near her mobile home. Phoebe would get loose and seek out people for petting and attention. Since Phoebe would get off her chain, he bought a logging chain and attached it to her collar. She had a dog house too small for her to get into, and no water, other than the snow to drink, and she was tied at the wood's edge. Since the woman was elderly, she could not make it out to feed her each day. Fortunately she contacted us for help when the local shelter told her they did not have room for her. Phoebe has a wonderful spirit, and is friendly and loves attention. She rides well in the car, too. She gets along fine with other dogs. Phoebe is friendly and eager to please and would be a star candidate in behavior training. Phoebe loves retrieving balls, too. Phoebe will be placed as an inside pet with outside privileges to a secure visibly fenced yard. Pyrs do not do well with wireless fencing. We recommend obedience training for all newly adopted pyrs, to help you create a special bond with you and your new friend, and so you have a well behaved canine. Great Pyrenees are willing to learn, but are not as eager to comply with commands as much as other breeds. They are bred to be independent thinkers. Adopters must be over 25, own their own home and all children in household must be over 5 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.
