Teddy and Shiloh are looking for a new home! They are the sweetest 8 month old pure Great Pyrenees puppies. They snuggle with our whole family (kids included) and protect us by sleeping outside at night. These boys just need more room to roam and some farm animals to protect. We would love, love to keep Shiloh and Teddy together if possible, they play together very well!

Story
This is our baby Bear. This sweet, gentle boy is looking for a calm and quiet home to call his own. He's very cuddly and loves to play with all kinds of toys. Bear is house-trained and knows the commands sit and lay. Bear has come out of his shell with the socialization he is getting at the rescue and his foster home. He is more ready than ever to make that leap into his forever home. He is being fostered by one of our incredible volunteers and they have had a very nice time getting to know one another. He loves playing in their snowy backyard and joining them on their boat for lake adventures! He has recently loved playing with another HSAR dog, Gracie, and it is a joy to watch them interact. Another dog at home may help Bear come out of his shell a bit more. Bear's adoption fee has been fully sponsored so his adopter will not need to pay an adoption fee!If you would like to meet Bear please fill out an online application at highsierraanimalrescue.orgOther dogs: yes, slow intros are best for BearCats: it is possible that Bear could go to a home with cats if his adopters were willing to work with certain behaviors."he didn't want to hurt Annie (HSAR cat) but he wanted to play with her like she was a dog and that could escalate if not trained properly"Kids: 8+Weight: 50 pdsTransfer type: Surrendered to HSAR

Don't draw your skip card because Uno is a total winner! Adoptable Uno is ready to meet his match! This young boy has a few doggy friends at the rescue and loves to play with others. He is energetic when starting a play session but quickly comes to the realization that he would rather hang out beside his person or dog friend and chill out.He would be great for a family with older kids (8+) or for a couple or individual who is looking to add to their pack. He's learning quickly with the help of our staff and volunteers and we know that he will continue to make us and his adopters proud.He already knows "sit" and "wait" and makes excellent eye contact for such a young dog! He loves to keep busy with Kong's and play with his toys.He's been in the shelter for way too long! Months! Let's find him an awesome home where he can relax, play, and continue to make people happy for years to come. He does great at events and has proven that to us multiple times! He meets new people with ease and did well meeting small and large dogs on leash. All HSAR dogs are up to date on age appropriate shots, spayed/neutered, heart worm tested, given heart worm preventive during their stay with us, and micro-chipped.To meet Uno please fill out an online application at highsierraanimalrescue.org. He is awesome!Weight: 45 pdsOther dogs: Positive interactions at HSAR eventsCats: Interested but not aggressiveKids: kids under 8 not recommended, he could use some guidance with puppy behavior but he's very trainable

Story
This stunning girl is named Ivory Though her eyes may be the first thing you notice, it's her bubbly personality that is sure to win you over. She's 2 years old and has been good with other dogs from what we've seen here. She was great during her assessment and intake process, very gentle and patient with our staff. She seems to like all people but plays too hard for children or those in fragile health. Please feel welcome to fill out an online application at highsierraanimalrescue.org and mention "Ivory" if you'd like to meet this beautiful lady!All HSAR dogs are up to date on age appropriate shots, spayed/neutered, heart worm tested, given heart worm preventive during their stay with us, and micro-chipped.Weight: 45 poundsOther dogs: YesCats: NoKids: children 10+

Story
This gorgeous, little blue eyed baby is named Korra and she's looking to be placed in a home as soon as possible We are able to provide information about her in a home setting. If you are interested in meeting her after reading the information below please fill out an online application at highsierraanimalrescue.org and mention "Korra". She is now 1.5 years oldHer previous owner notes that Korra is a loyal, playful, active, and happy girl. She loved playing with her dog brothers most of the day but slow introductions to other dogs in open spaces seems to work best for her. Her play style is a bit rough so dogs similar in age and energy level may work best. She is on the smaller side, weighing in at about 35 pounds. Korra knows the commands sit, lay down, shake, stay, and recalls most of the time unless with another dog who doesn't. She lived with an older cat previously but wanted to play, a dog savvy cat may work. She cannot be placed in a home with poultry or livestock, she has proven that. She lived with children ages 6 and 7 and has been around kids as young as 4, however she has shown herding tendencies with young children as they run but has never hurt anyone.Korra has never torn up any furniture and she is house trained but she will be destructive of belongings in her crate (blanket, dog bed, towel) if left alone. She is able to jump any kind of fencing under 6 feet and will dig under as well. She is fine at home when people are present but when left alone she experiences quite a bit of separation anxiety. We recommend a home where she will not be alone for more than a few hours.She has been very sweet with us since coming back
