My Story

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

Lance, the Great Pyrenees boy, described as a Velcro dog who is always up for an adventure, is looking for a person to call his own. Lance, an energetic boy, loves people and wants to be with you as much as possible! He would benefit from an active person to engage him in everyday activities such as walks, hikes, and playing in the yard and to challenge his mind. Who knows, maybe he would even love to learn agility with you? This gorgeous boy, like so many Pyrs, came into rescue as a stray with no prior training, manners, or love ever shown to him and about 30 lbs underweight. He has quickly learned to walk on a leash, go on car rides, enjoy brushing...anything that involves being with his person :) Lance, like so many Pyrenees, takes his heritage of being a guardian dog seriously, so will need a person who understands the breed and how to manage his protectiveness of his food. Lance passed the cat test with flying colors and lived happily with cats in his temporary foster home. While he loves to play with the other dogs, Lance would also thrive in a home as an only dog where he could continue his training and get all the attention he craves. Playdates for Lance would be a plus! If you are a devoted Great Pyrenees lover and looking for a furever companion to spend your days with, Lance just may be your boy!

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.

If you can't foster or adopt at this time, please consider helping our Neediest Cases or making a tax-exempt donation by visiting our Donate page.
