My Story

Adoption Pending. You can see more of these beautiful dogs by clicking on Rescue Dogs.

This gorgeous Pyrenees boy is Arlo and he is such a big handsome boy. He is a well-mannered and easy-going, and currently 100 pounds. This good boy was new to indoor living, and his housetraining is going well. He goes right to the door to let his foster dad know he has to go outside. Arlo is also good with the multitude of other dogs in his foster home and should do fine with dog-savvy cats. His best pal is Amber, a young Pyrenees girl and they love to play and hang out together. An ideal home for Arlo would include another friendly female dog for him to pal around with or he would do fine on his own. Arlo loves taking leash walks around the property with his foster dad and he does great on leash. Despite a rough start in life, coming from a crowded Animal Control, this sweet boy is looking and feeling so much better than when he arrived. Arlo is heartworm positive and being treated with the slow kill method so we will provide meds for him until he tests negative. We are all so happy that Arlo is safe now in rescue and we cannot wait to see him happy and well-loved with his 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.

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.
