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

Pet Adoption Event put on by the San Diego Animal Support Foundation
December 6, 2014
Our Pyr-In was attended by 40 people and their best friends. 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. Check our Available tab to see if there is a Pyr waiting for you

Say "Hello" to Crystal
My name is is Crystal. These are my before and after pictures. Two of my three owners passed away and new people just keep taking me in but do nothing with me! I am 6 years old and in desperate need of grooming! Rescue took me to the vet, I hadn't been in at least 3 years! I am now current on all of my vaccines and have my microchip. I'm a big girl at 146 pounds but can really move so don't worry about me being able to go for walks. I can keep up with anyone and after running up and down the hills here at the ranch I expect to be really fit in no time!
UPDATE: I have been adopted and went home with my new mom Carol.
