My Story

Heidi loves you already—and you’ve only just met through a picture :) Imagine the first time you get to touch and love on her, and she gets to show you how much she loves you back! This pretty lady is the Pyrfect age, past the puppy chewing and young enough to join you in your daily adventures. Heidi is very affectionate and especially loves when her person gets down and gives her kisses on her nose! Heidi is mastering her leash skills so would love a person(s) who will take her for walks so she can show off how much she knows. Heidi loves to spend her days cooling off in a hole she has dug just for that purpose—of course if you want her to laze in the air-conditioned house, she would be happy to join you :) Heidi will need a doggie brother and a home with a lot of people interaction. She came into rescue with another Pyrenees girl from a very rural KY county after being on stray hold with the local AC. As can be expected, she is very thin and should weigh closer to 100 lbs. All Pyrs require secure fencing to keep them safe; but we are happy to say this Great Pyrenees shows little attention with no desire to escape. She was respectful of the cats when she saw them and due to her gentle nature, we feel she would do well with children who have been raised with dogs. If you are looking for an affectionate PYR lady to spend your days with look no further!

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.
