Puppies are ready to join their fur-ever homes at 11 weeks old.
Please note that preference will be given to applicants with large breed experience.
Madia is my name, but my foster mom always calls me Sweet Pea. Soft toys that squeak are fantastic, but what I really enjoy most is playing with my foster Chi Min Pin sibling! So it goes without saying - I’m good with other dogs. I even enjoy my foster human kids a lot. I can’t understand why the cats that live here hide from me. It may be due to chasing them, but I’m so young I can learn to stop. They say I’m smart and doing great with housetraining. I even know to sit for treats! As an added bonus, I’m doing great at walking on a leash! I really like my routines to stay the same - that must be due to having a Great Pyrenees for a mom (my dad is an Anatolian Shepherd). At the end of the day I sometimes enjoy falling asleep in my foster mom’s arms before she usually carries me to my crate. Watch out now...once you look into my sweet eyes you may be forever under my spell!

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.
More Information: Questions? The fastest way to learn more about a dog is to fill out the application form below.
