This gorgeous young Pyrenees girl is Amber and she is such a sweetheart! Amber is shy with people when first meeting them, but once she trusts you, she loves attention and affection and will seek that out from her humans. Amber loves to play and she really bonded with a young boy Pyrenees at her foster home, so she would do best with another friendly young male dog in her new home to show her the ropes. Amber is now housetrained and likes being indoors - she also has learned to walk nicely on leash. She is also good with the cats in her foster home. Amber may initially be afraid of new things, as in her former life she was not exposed to much (she was likely a farm dog), so new experiences like going to a groomer will likely be frightening to her so she will need a patient adopter willing to work with her exposing her to new things. She is the sweetest young girl who had a lousy start in life, but those days are over now that she is safe in rescue. Amber came into rescue with two other Pyrenees from a very crowded Animal Control when their time was up. Amber was dumped there just after having a litter of her own. Poor girl was bred while she was just a pup herself. Sadly, we have no idea what happened to her babies. Despite a rough start in life, this sweet girl is looking and feeling so much better than when she arrived and we are determined that she will never be abandoned again. We are all so happy that Amber is safe now in rescue and we cannot wait to see her safe, loved and happy with her new furever family!

Our goal is to assess every application on its own merits. Key considerations are: 1) the experience of the applicant with large breed dogs 2) children in the household or regularly visiting the household are ready for a large-breed dog who is a guardian by nature and 3) the sex of other dogs currently residing in the household to avoid same-sex aggression issues. For puppies under six months old, the applicant’s ability to socialize the puppy with older dogs is a priority.
