My Story

Sweet as pie is the best way to describe baby Destin! Destin is the smallest in her litter, but also the bossiest— lovingly referred to as miss bossy-pants! They say great things come in small packages—you couldn’t ask for a more loving, wonderful pup than Destin. She is a Great Pyrenees mix, who came into rescue with her 7 siblings known as the Ditch Litter. These babies were found abandoned in a ditch and taken straight to a foster home where they were showered with love and attention. Destin has a quiet disposition but also loves to correct her littermates when they are doing something wrong :) She will also be the first to alert with a bark when something is amiss. Destin and her siblings will make the perfect companion for boaters—not only are they amazing swimmers but they have mastered taking the kayak out for a spin on their own! Destin swims daily to help build up her legs and muscles. To keep her safe, she needs a secure 5’ fence and a male canine playmate (no females). She can easily be your one and only pup, and she gets along great with cats. If you are looking for a confident pup who is both sweet and sassy, Destin is waiting for you!

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.

If you can't foster or adopt at this time, please consider helping our Neediest Cases.

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.
