My story

Polly is such a sweet girl that is looking for her forever home! She is one of three sisters rescued and will never have to live her life in a crowded kennel again. She has already learned to use a doggie door at her foster mom's home and is learning her house manners. Somewhat timid at first, but she is warming up nicely. Learning to walk on a leash. Polly gets along great with all-size dogs as she was around her feline friend and a small chihuahua at her former home. Caution should be taken around the little kids as she has done great with being around teenagers. She is a BIG girl and will be BIGGER at full growth.

She loves to run and play, so a big yard that is fenced-in would be ideal. Polly would make a great jogging buddy or a couch-snuggler on the long cold winter days ahead. Because of her calm breed demeanor, Polly is going to make a great pet for her new family.

We know that dad is a full-blooded Great Pyrenees dog but mom is a Great Pyrenees mix girl. This is where a DNA test would come in handy! Go ahead and reserve Polly to add to your new home as she is preparing to travel soon!



Polly Is spayed/neutered, up to date on age-appropriate vaccinations, treated for all of the intestinal parasites, and current on flea/tick and heartworm preventative. Because intestinal parasites are cyclical, your puppy may need additional treatment once you get him/her home. This is common and nothing to be alarmed about. Puppies and dogs need to be treated periodically for parasites throughout their entire lives.



The adoption fee is $550 if your adoption is prepaid prior to your pup's arrival. An additional $50 will be charged on puppies that are picked up from our Southbury CT adoption center, adopted at an event, or foster home. This additional fee is necessary in order to comply with CT HB 5368.



WANT TO MEET OUR DOGS IN PERSON? Check the Events tab on cprdogs.com for all weekend adoption event info. The majority of the dogs marked as 'meet me' will be there to see you!



More and more of our adopters are having fun with DNA tests on their pups. You might ask yourself why our breed guess is varying degrees of difference from the DNA tests. Most of our puppies are rescued from high kill shelters or other abandonment situations and we have no info on parents. When we rescue puppies that have no background info, we make our very best educated guess as to breed mix and age. Our guesstimate comes from years and years and years of animal welfare work and training, but our guesses won't always agree with your vet, your neighbor, your DNA test, etc. The most important thing to know about your puppy's breed mix is that most likely he/she is a Super Lovable Mutt made of many many many different breeds.



If you are a MA resident, your new family member is required to go through a mandatory 48 hour quarantine period at the Woburn MA isolation facility. Your new family member will be dropped off by our transport on Thursday and will be ready for you to pick him/her up on Saturday between 11 am-1 pm. An additional $100 fee will be added for any dogs picked up from the Woburn MA quarantine facility. This additional fee is necessary in order to comply with MA Order 405-CD-12 and Order 1-AHO-05.

Why adoption is a great option

Polly~adopted!, a Southbury Great Pyrenees/Golden Retriever dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Great Pyrenees/Golden Retriever for sale in Southbury, or seeking a Great Pyrenees/Golden Retriever dog from a breeder in Southbury.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Southbury 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 Southbury 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/Golden Retriever breeders who help with Great Pyrenees/Golden Retriever rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Southbury paves the way for another one to be saved.
