My story

Leo is one of our six sanctuary dogs. We rescued him in July 2020. Leo has been with us for such a long time that we feel he would not do well transitioning to a new home. So we will continue to love and care for Leo in rescue. We appreciate donations towards his food/treats, monthly preventatives, and routine vet care.

My name is Leo. Don't you just love my beautiful golden mane and my amber eyes? I came into rescue after a Kansas Humane Society adopted me out twice but I was returned both times. My adopters didn't pay enough attention to me so I kept escaping my yard and went looking for friends. I'm a pretty chill guy and like being petted, but I'm not in your face about it. If you scratch my neck I will close my eyes and lean on you. I am very gentle with my Pyr Paw. Sometimes I even put up two paws and I almost fall over backwards in the process! I LOVE being outside observing my surroundings and am happy in a rural setting with a large yard to watch over. I'm house trained, like to go for walks, and like to play in the water. I am treat motivated and will sit for treats. My foster dad says I'm dog friendly but also like getting all the attention when other dogs aren't around. I was introduced to cats at the vets office and I paid them no mind. I am microchipped, neutered, up to date on vaccinations, and up to date on heartworm and flea/tick preventatives.

More about this rescue

Great Pyrenees Rescue of Missouri is dedicated to rescuing Great Pyrenees who are without a home, need medical attention, or just need a safe haven as they transition to their forever home. We are a volunteer, nonprofit rescue, relying solely on your generous donations. We are currently working to establish our rescue facility in St. Clair, Missouri. Until our facility is constructed, we will be foster based only, with fosters in Missouri and surrounding states. We will continue to have fosters after our facility is built. Our facility will allow us to rescue more Pyrenees in need.
