How Do I Give Up My Great Pyrenees?

by Adopt a Pet, | January 8, 2024


You can give up your Great Pyrenees in several different ways including giving her to someone you know, online adoption, or surrendering her to a shelter or rescue. Even though you never imagined that you would have to give up your dog, life can sometimes take unexpected twists and turns. You might find that you’re in a situation where it’s not possible to keep her, and she would be better off with someone else. Regardless of why you need to give her up, you’ll want to be sure that you can find her the best possible home.

Giving Her Up to Family or Friends

You might be fortunate enough to have a family member or a friend that’s been looking for a dog and who would like to adopt your Great Pyrenees. If they have the space available, and they can care for your dog properly, they could be a nice and simple solution. When you give your dog to someone you already know, and who may already know and love your Great Pyrenees, it’s easier for both you and your dog.

Of course, when you give your Great Pyrenees to someone you know, you must give her time to adjust to her new home and owner. You don’t want to visit right away, as this will only confuse your dog. She’ll wonder why she isn’t coming home with you, and this can make it take longer for her to adjust.

Finding Someone to Adopt Online

Another option to consider is finding someone online who is willing to adopt. However, you can’t just give your dog to anyone who might seem interested in adopting. You still need to be sure they’re a good owner. To make this easier, you’ll want to use only reputable pet adoption sites.

A good option is Rehome by Adopt-a-Pet.com, which is a peer-to-peer platform that connects owners and potential adopters. You’ll create a profile for your dog including a bio, photo, and videos. It’s important to create a detailed bio that lets potential adopters know all of the great things your Great Pyrenees offers, along with any issues that she might have. This helps to ensure that the right people adopt her.

Surrendering Your Great Pyrenees

You also have the option of surrendering your Great Pyrenees when you have to give her up. Surrendering means that you’ll take her to a shelter or a rescue. Before you can do this, however, you’ll need to contact the facility and understand their policies, surrender fees, etc. The rescues are often full, so they may have room for your Great Pyrenees. However, if you can get her into one of these rescues, it can be a good option. She can stay there until she’s adopted.

Shelters will be easier to get your dog into, but you have to keep in mind that there’s no guarantee she’ll be adopted. These facilities have a limited amount of space, and they may need to euthanize dogs after a certain period has passed.
