I’m a big boy named General, offering an impressive mix of Pyr and loveable Lab! Would you like the best of both breeds? I got it covered! I’m the strong silent type...not too barky...nice and mellow...and I’ll melt into your lap if you’ll let me. I love sunny spots on the floor - and don’t be skimpy with the tummy rubs! I’m a big strong boy but I’m a real push-over with the girls - I’ll even share my rope toy for a little tug-o-war with my fur-sister. My foster mom says I’m such a doll (I thought I was a dog, but ‘doll’ sounds like a good thing, too). I have the “sit” command down-pat, and “stay” isn’t going too badly either because I’m eager to please and very concerned if I don’t. I’m a mushy, mellow guy who just wants your love and attention!

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.
