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

My leg when the ligature was removed

Update on Bella:
I have seen a Specialist Vet in Los Angeles! Wow! The big city! She was so very nice to me, and believe it or not, she doesn't think I will have to lose my leg! Yay!!! She put me on a course of medication to relieve the swelling and infection. When that is gone, she will evaluate my injury and recommend a treatment plan to help me recover and become a 4 legged girl again! (Right now I just hop around on 3 legs!) I am very hopeful her plan will work and I am trying to be ever so good, so that it will. I don't know how much it will cost but I know it will be an expensive and lengthy recovery whatever happens.
If you can help Rescue pay for my treatment I will be ever so grateful. I don't understand why anyone would have done this to me, but I know there are many good, caring humans in this world who can help. If you can help, please click the "Donate" button above my story and make a donation for my care through PayPal. Please note your donation is for me, Bella. Thank you so very much!
Wags & Kisses,
This is my story...
I am a young Pyr who was picked up by Animal Control in terrible condition. When they found me I couldn't walk. Someone had tied a ligature around my left hind leg so tight it was cutting off the circulation. No one knows how long the ligature had been there, but it was evident it had been there for quite some time because my leg was so swollen and purple. And it was so very painful. I was so relieved when the nice folks at Animal Control removed the ligature but it still hurts and I still can't use my leg. They were sure I would lose it. They knew I was probably not adoptable in that state but fortunately for me, Rescue wanted to give me a second chance and I was brought to Great Pyr Rescue.

Are you a Senior?
We prefer Golden Ager!
If you are, then we have dogs at our Rescue who are just right for you. Long past the Puppy stage, they are mature Pyrs who have experienced some hard times but still long to find a “forever home”.
They will not want you to jog with them, but rather to take them on long walks. They will prefer a nap by your feet, to a game of fetch, and if you give them your love, they will return it ten-fold.
These are our Golden Girls & Guys. Ask about our discount for adopting one of our Golden Pyrs (over 5 years old).
They deserve a loving home with a great owner/parent. You deserve a loving companion.
It’s a perfect match.
