We hope you enjoy our web site. Please return to it again and again as new Pyrs are posted for adoption.
Pyrs are wanderers--require sturdy 6' fencing that they cannot dig under or go over to contain them.
Pyrs are not an off-leash breed--must be on a leash when out of their secure yard.
Pyrs are territorial--do not always get along with same sex dogs.
Pyrs are nocturnal and guard by barking--must be brought inside at night so as not to irritate neighbors.
Pyrs leave white hair everywhere year round--car, couch, refrig, flooring, your clothes.
Pyrs should be obedience trained to fully enjoy them. They are super intelligent and easily bored--no training session over 15 minutes of active commands.
Pyrs are a large working breed who do not thrive in apartments or condos, they can become bored and destructive without sufficient outdoor exercise in a securely fenced area.
NO OUT OF STATE ADOPTIONS.
Our territory for shelters or Pyrs in need is from the Mexican Border to Fresno, the coast up to and including San Luis Obispo, and all of Southern Nevada

Most of the Great Pyrenees dogs you will see in the pictures are former Rescue dogs now living in their new homes with their adoptive families. Each one is beautiful and very much loved.

November is Senior Dog Month
so Say "HELLO" to Kalvin!
Kalvin is a hearty and energetic 8 yr old neutered male Pyr who loves everyone he meets, 2 legged or 4.
Kalvin's last owner tied him to a fence and left him there until Animal Control came to pick him up!! He had to be surgically shaved to remove the fox tails and have an abscess in his neck treated.
Kal has gained 15 lbs. since coming to us and has a few more lbs. to go at 89lbs.
As all Pyrs Kalvin has wonderful house manners and is looking for a loving home with a soft bed.
To meet Kalvin please submit our brief application on this web site
