We are in desparate need of foster familes for our Great Pyrenees Rescue! The ideal foster would have knowledge of the Pyr breed and have experience with large breed dogs. A mature male Pyr is generally 100-130 pounds, while the females are 80-110 pounds. Most people over-estimate the weight of the dog because the double-coat and mane around the neck make them look bigger. Pyrs will roam if they are lonely or not in a fenced yard. These dogs were bred to watch over flocks in mountain pastures. They would rather explore what is on the other side of the hill, than worry about getting lost. They are loving and loyal, wonderful companions to children and other pets. They are a natrual watchdog and will alert you with a booming bark when they hear a sound that could be an intruder. If you are interested in being a foster parent, or in meeting one of our dogs for adoption, please reach out via email.
