My story

Hi, my name is CHUNK and I'm a neutered male about 3-1/2 yrs old. I'm a terrific looking dog! I'm confident, animated and very expressive, However, I'm not going to be able to get along with everyone. I'm very particular about who I like and who I don't, and I can be a real jerk from time to time. Some times I'll let you pet me, and other times I'll growl and tell you to leave me alone. I can be a real "ARS", but if you're someone I "CAN" live with, that will be up to ME. Don't expect me to live with kids... I have no use for them! In fact, if you are a "live and let live" person we might get along just fine. Everyone else need not apply AND don't expect me to like other family dogs... cat's are cool, though!
I want a nice fenced yard that I can come and go in. I'm protective of my stuff but, I can be sweet when it's on my terms. I don't want to live around chaos and would prefer a quiet or rural environment. You know, I've been so happy here that I don't know if I want to leave, which means... I dare you to adopt me! So, if you are attracted to good looking, temperamental guys, I could be your man.

Their adoption process

Additional adoption info

Applicants have to fill out an application. Go to http://www.spgpc.com/adoptionprocess.htm The application consists of 4 pages and 60 questions relating fenced yards, whether they have had this breed before or large dogs. Three references are required, one from their veterinarian, one from someone they've gotten a dog from before (if applicable) and a personal reference. If the application looks good, then we proceed to the references. If the references are good then we schedule a home study to make sure the dogs will thrive in that environment. Finally we engage the applicants into a contract that spell out their responsibility to the dog and us and our responsibility to them and the dog they are adopting. We then assign a mentor to help them through the transition period and a 1 yr membership to the club. Whether they maintain the membership in force or not we are still a resource to them for the life of the dog. And should life happen, we always take our dogs back.

More about this rescue

We belong to a breed club and take in Great Pyrenees and Great Pyrenees mix dogs. Once a dog is taken into our program, it is restored to health, brought current on all vaccines, micro chipped, had microscopic fecal exams and treated for parasites and worms and had a heart worm test. If positive they are treated before making adoptable and if negative, they are put on a heart worm monthly preventative as well as a preventative for fleas and ticks. All dogs are groomed prior to adoption and are in good health.
