My story

I’m an extremely handsome, smart & loyal boy. I love to give & receive affection and can go from silly & playful, to the hard working breed that I am, taking my work serious to please my human. I will need a large fenced area, to satisfy my need to run, herd and protect, as well as a consistent trainer who will give me lots of stimulation, exercise and positive correction to keep me focused and overcome my occasional stubbornness, I really just don't realize my size or strength, so I would do best with adults or older children, slow introduction to other dogs, and experience with my Great Pyrenes breed would be a plus. Do you have the love and patience I deserve, so I can give you all the love and loyalty I have?

Dont forget to follow us on facebook!

If you want to meet a pup in person, Once Upon a Tail Rescue does adoption events at PetSmart in Covington, LA on most Saturdays with many of our adoptable dogs there.

Don't forget to complete your application ahead of time, so you don't miss out on the pup you've connected with. If pre-approved, you have first priority & can usually take home your new best friend the same day!

*Please note that there is no obligation to adopt by completing an application.*

**All dogs are required to have complete vet services, including shots, rabies, spay/neuter and microchip, which are included in the Adoption Fee. Some dogs may still require completion of these services due to current age, size, breed and/or health. All vet services must be done at the vet clinic used by Once Upon a Tail Rescue.

More about this rescue

Once Upon a Tail (formerly Dante’s Hope East) is a foster based rescue located in St Tammany Parish in LA. We rescue dogs from every imaginable situation.... strays fending for themselves, man injured with no one else to help them, owner surrenders when they can no longer care for them, far too many from euthanasia lists before they are put down in kill shelters, and others who have been neglected and abused. We continue to ask you, our community to join us to help save all of these dogs so we can find forever homes where they are loved and treated like a member of the family. We continue to advocate for animals and stay active in fighting for animal welfare in our parish until one day we reach the goal of making St Tammany Parish the first no kill parish in our state. We will remain unafraid and unwavering in doing what it takes, meeting with parish officials, and educating the community to accomplish this. Our hearts break in a million pieces every time we take in the abused, neglected, injured, and thrown away dog, but then every time one by one they find their forever homes, our hearts are made whole once again. It is only with community support, donations, and the amazing foster network that we can continue to be the voice and save so many! Every Dog's story deserves a Happy "Once Upon a Tail" Ending!
