Blizzard is a 2 1/2 year old male pyr who was previously used as a livestock guardian with goats. His owner sold the goats, Blizzard did not get along with his other male dog, so he turned him into the shelter. He is very gentle and friendly, but can be food protective with other pets. He would be best as an only dog although he will tolerate female dogs. Blizzard is a fence jumper so he will need a home with a fence taller than 4'. He is a great human companion, but does not like all other dogs. He is a magnificent male, who loves all people. Blizzard will be placed as an inside dog with access to a securely fenced area. He loves being outside, so a home with a 6' fenced yard would be ideal for him. 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. Blizzard does know some basic commands, too. 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.
