This adorable young girl is Gracie and she is as sweet as she is gorgeous! Gracie loves people and would do great on her own or with another male Pyr for a companion. In her former home Gracie lived with another male Pyrenees, kids and cats and we are told she did great with them. She is a sweet girl who loves to give kisses and she walks nicely on leash. Gracie came to rescue in TN when we were contacted by a shelter helper who let us know that Gracie was getting turned in by owner for eating chickens. She was purchased to be a livestock guardian but poor Gracie was starving and full of worms. She was thrown out with the chickens and they expected her to know what to do with them. Here are some notes from her foster mom: "Gracie is so loving and gentle. She likes to ride in the front passenger seat of the vehicle. She enjoys running around the yard when she gets the zoomies. We've introducing her different stimuli since we've had her. One of those things is brushing. She is a little unsure of this situation but I'm sure with time and patience, she'll learn to love the attention. Gracie likes to give gentle kisses on your nose. She gets along with other dogs with proper introductions. Gracie will need to be fed separately from other dogs, which is understandable as she came in starving. She's a really good girl and loves her people. Gracie is looking and feeling so much better now!" Gracie is beautiful, sweet and so smart, and learning everything she needs to learn with her foster mom. She is fully vetted and loving getting regular meals, affection and attention. She will be a great companion for some lucky family - could it be yours?

NYS Registered Rescue # RR102
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.
