|Pet ID #:||NGPR-3045-F|
Children in the home must be at least 6 years old.
Previous dog experience is required, preferably large breed.
Female Great Pyrenees rarely cohabitate with other females successfully. Our goal is for each adoption to be a permanent placement, therefore homes that already have a female dog are not eligible to adopt a female Pyr.
Meet Heather! She is the sweetest companion and loves to lay her head on your lap as you pet her gently. She can be timid, especially towards men, but we are finding she just needs a little more time to adjust to some people. Outside she has the most graceful prance as she moves through the yard...almost like a pony! She has learned to sit before meals and treats and is always eager to please. Heather is completely housebroken, and well behaved inside while you are gone - no need to crate this girl! She gets along beautifully with her foster's cats and male Pyr. Heather would do best in a quieter home, perhaps with older children. As her foster says, "she's an easy keeper". We dare you not to fall in love with this beautiful, amazingly sweet girl!

About Us: National Great Pyrenees Rescue (NGPR) is not a shelter. We are a not-for-profit, tax-exempt coalition of Pyr rescuers and rescue groups. We save Pyrs and Pyr mixes across the country and place them in approved foster homes so we know how they will interact with your family. Please consider adopting or fostering. Every dog who is fostered or adopted makes room for another Pyr coming out of a kill shelter. Prior to adoption, NGPR dogs are fostered for a minimum of two weeks (usually more), spayed or neutered and fully vetted. Dogs coming from out of area are certified with a USDA health certificate before going to their new homes. Our rescuers adhere to the highest placement standards and will take back any dog whose adoption does not succeed. Visit www.nationalpyr.org to learn more about us, our mission and our breed.
