The beauty of a Great Pyrenees can take your breath away, but they are unique dogs which require dedicated owners who have thoroughly researched the traits of the breed. Feel free to visit our website at www.nepyresq.org for information to start your journey! Northeast Pyrenees Rescue only sponsors dogs from the Northeast including New Jersey for placement in homes in our region. If you are interested in meeting this pyrenees, please complete our application at http://www.nepyresq.org/page/adoption-application-36.html Please include any questions in the comments field of the application. Keep in mind that we are a volunteer organization and encourage serious inquiries only. Great Pyrenees are known for their barking as they were bred to be Livestock Guardians. HOWEVER, a dog not raised around farm animals does not automatically become an Livestock Guardian. They are trained from birth to do that job. If you need a working dog you should contact a reputable breeder for a trained dog. Find breeders at Great Pyrenees Club of America www.gpcaonline.org

Rescue Group Info...
NorthEast Pyr Rescue (NEPR) is a non-profit corporation and an all-volunteer organization dedicated to providing compassionate, coordinated and comprehensive rescue services for Great Pyrenees dogs in our region, the North East portion of the United States.
We have Three Primary Goals:
1.) Rescue and Re-homing –We provide rescue care for Great Pyrenees dogs that are lost, abandoned, neglected or surrendered and place them in loving permanent homes. In many instances the dogs have lived with attentive and loving families but due to difficult circumstances, such as divorce or owner death, the Pyr needs to find a new home. In some cases dogs have been neglected or abandoned and have special care needs.
2.) Education – We teach people about the Great Pyrenees breed characteristics and convey information regarding proper dog selection and the importance of spaying and neutering. Members set up educational booths at county fairs, public events, Pet-Co, live stock events, and dog shows to disseminate information and answer questions. We distribute about 500 educational fliers and pamphlets each year a s well as speak to approximately 1,000 people.
3.) Consultation and Assistance – We work with owners who are experiencing behavioral problems with their Pyrs, connecting them with experienced breeders and owners who understand and help resolve their issues of concern. In most instances, with dedicated owners, we can provide easy solutions so the Pyr can remain in their home forever.
All of our available dogs are located in foster homes with our volunteers. These foster homes are spread across the Northeast. We will arrange for you to go meet any available dogs in their foster home.
NEPR interviews each applicant and also conducts a home visit to ensure this is the right breed for them. The Great Pyrenees is not a breed for everyone. Education about the breed is key for prospective owners to avoid mistakes in placement. If the placement isn't working, Northeast Pyr Rescue will take the dog back immediately under any circumstances. Adopting a dog locally has several advantages. A volunteer goes to the home of the prospective owners and makes suggestions for the dog's care. Prospective owners can also meet and "interview" dogs at conveniently located facilities or foster homes. Our canine behavioralists specialize in working with Pyrs and are always available for questions or support. We ask for a donation of $25 at the time of the home visit, and then a donation of $350 when a Great Pyrenees is adopted from our rescue.
