My story

Thor is a sweet boy who is all about his people. He is well behaved indoors. He is learning his basic commands and really just wants to please. He has been around children but we recommend 10 and over, because he really has no idea what a big boy he is. He doesn't seem to have an issue with some dogs and seems to prefer those who are smaller than him but we haven't tested him a lot and a meet and greet with any current pets would be necessary. He is a pet and not a working dog. He will leave if you keep him outside, he wants to be part of the family but his nickname is Thordini. He can get out of anything (yard, crate, etc),but only to find people. His previous family loved him very much but could not keep him contained. He got "bumped" by a car on his last walk about (he's ok, nothing broken) and they realized he needed more than they could provide for him. He needs a very secure fence, lots of exercise and needs to be an active part of the household. He does not like to get in the car but does fine on rides once he's in. He's a gentle giant...make him YOUR gentle giant.

Why adoption is a great option

Thor, a White Settlement Great Pyrenees dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Great Pyrenees for sale in White Settlement, or seeking a Great Pyrenees dog from a breeder in White Settlement.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in White Settlement already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a White Settlement breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Great Pyrenees breeders who help with Great Pyrenees rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in White Settlement paves the way for another one to be saved.
