My story

Hi, my name is SONNY and I'm almost 2 yrs old and am a spayed female. I'm house broken, like to go for walks and ride well in the car. I came into rescue a little concerned. I had not been handled well and was frightened. I am believed to be hearing impaired or even deaf. I have very quick reactions, particularly when surprised. I can't hear well or at all. I was an owner surrender and was adopted and returned. Here at the rescue, volunteers take me out for walks and I'm happy to play with the dog next door to me through the kennel fencing, but I need to be an only dog. I need an experience Pyrenees owner who can handle a headstrong, temperamental female with attitude. I would do well in a rural setting with adults that will let me live and let live. I will take you on my terms, as I am very independent.

Note: Great Pyrenees are considered a Giant Breed. The average weight can be 100lbs. or more. They bark, shed, and have a wanderlust, so secure fences are a must-have. They are NOT off-leash dogs and a Pyr off-leash is called a "dis'a'Pyr". Some Pyrs do well with other dogs and some don't because by the virtue of the breed traits they were bred to keep out intruders and can consider some dogs as intruders. While they make wonderful pets and family dogs, they aren't for everyone so be sure to understand and learn about the breed traits of this breed or any breed you might be considering.

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.
