Posted Breed: Great Pyrenees (long coat). Meet Paloma! Being with people is her favorite thing! She was born around 6/1/2014, and is full-sized at 85 pounds. This girl is very affectionate, sweet, easy going, and laid back. She likes to be right by you and help you do things, like helping you put your shoes and socks on by laying her head on your lap. She is friendly towards every one she meets. Paloma would be happiest as the only dog in her new home. Cats are her preferred furry companion! She likes getting cozy with her kitty twin in her foster home. She is house trained, leash trained, and rides well in a car. She has no need for a crate. She is mostly quiet, and will share her deep, gruff bark only when needed. She should not be placed with young children or the very elderly, because she is a hard sleeper and startles easily. Also she sometimes gets over enthusiastic and jumps on people. Foster mom is working to stop this habit, but we don’t anyone getting accidentally pushed to the ground. SPIN Pyrs are all in foster homes in the Dallas/Fort Worth area. Potential adopters are asked to make travel arrangements if they live elsewhere. All SPIN dogs are spayed or neutered, current on vaccinations and on heartworm prevention. Please go to our website www.SpinRescue.org and fill out an application for this great Great Pyrenees!

More About Great Pyrenees Breed
If you’re looking to adopt a dog and don’t know where to start, puppyfinder.com is an excellent source for information about adopting a dog and will connect you with hundreds of shelters across the US that have adoptable puppies and older dogs waiting for forever homes.
  1. Do your research – find out what types of dogs would be a good fit for your lifestyle and the activity level of your family. Also keep in mind the grooming needs of certain breeds that might require frequent maintenance.
  2. Decide what you can handle – before you get sucked in by all the adorable puppy eyes you’re about to see, think long and hard about the appropriate age dog for your family or if you are capable of caring for a special needs dog. Puppies are a lot of work, if you don’t have time for potty training and obedience classes you’ll want to consider an older dog. There are plenty of middle aged, vibrant dogs up for adoption as well as many senior dogs that would be a great fit for a family looking for a more subdued dog with lots of love to give.
  3. Learn about the shelters and their adoption policies – It might be easier to start looking at shelters within a certain radius of home but don’t be afraid to venture out to other states as well. Many states have larger populations of adoptable dogs and their shelters are willing to transport pets to suitable adopting families. Some shelters might have requirements for a home visit, a fenced yard or require you to visit the pet multiple times before you commit to adopting. Understand that the shelters are doing their best to place the pets in suitable homes and these requirements are in the best interest of both you and the pet.
  4. Start looking… Once you know what you’re looking for and what to expect you can start your search through thousands of adoptable dogs. PuppyFinder allows you to search by age, breed, location and gender.
  5. Meet in person. Whenever possible it is best to meet the animal in person before agreeing to bring them into your life. Even though photos and descriptions can tell you a bit about a dog, you can’t get a true feeling for the animal until you are able to interact with them and make sure they are a good fit for your entire family, including other pets.

      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Great Pyrenees (long coat). Meet Oakley! This darling Great Pyrenees was born around November 2014. He is a tall boy weighing in at 86 pounds. This calm, affable fellow is an all-around good dog. He would love to live in a tranquil, quiet household. Oakley is the most affectionate boy, and he loves to love. He’ll walk right up to you and rub his sweet face on you or lay his face in your lap for attention. Snuggling is on top of his to-do list! He is playful and enjoys hanging out with his foster fur siblings. He is easy going and gets along with all dogs. When his small foster sibling dogs pester him, he just walks away. He could be an only dog, but he sure seems to enjoy canine company. If you’d like to get him a buddy, Trooper (who adores Oakley) is also available for adoption. He is house trained, leash trained, crate trained, and rides well in a car, and is of respectful cats. He is just so easy. One snuggle from Oakley and you will be sunk. He says it all in that one head-first gesture, “Thank you for taking a chance on me, I already love you, and I’m yours forever.” Oakley is available exclusively to adopters in the Dallas/Fort Worth area. SPIN Pyrs are all in foster homes in the Dallas/Fort Worth area. Potential adopters are asked to make travel arrangements if they live elsewhere.

      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Great Pyrenees (long coat). Meet Joker! This sweet and gentle Great Pyrenees was born on March 15, 2012. He has the most adorable stocky build. He is a big boy at 125 pounds; his ideal weight is probably about 115. Joker is a great companion dog. He was in a loving home for three years until one of his humans became ill, and he had to be re-homed. He adjusted nicely to his new foster home as they lavished him with the attention he loves. Joker is a happy, lovable dog. He loves to follow you around the house and settle in beside you. He is friendly when guests are invited inside. He is used to being king of his castle and wants to be the only dog in his new home. He can get along with other dogs as long as they are big, slow, and calm. He doesn’t like little flitting-type of dogs. He does fine with older, calm children also. Young, active kids make him nervous. He prefers a calm, quiet household. He enjoys his daily mile-long walk. He likes car rides and enjoys trips to the dog park. He does not dig in the yard, and he only barks when there is something to warn you about. Joker is afraid of thunderstorms. His fear can be managed with a light dose of medication. Sometimes he likes to take refuge in his crate. If you are home during the storm, he is fine if he is in the same room as you. Will you be his new family? SPIN Pyrs are all in foster homes in the Dallas/Fort Worth area. Potential adopters are asked to make travel arrangements if they live elsewhere.

      Breed: Great Pyrenees-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Great Pyrenees / Mixed (medium coat). Meet Rocky! This sweet Great Pyrenees was born around 4/4/2015. Just look at his great profile with his proud head and a deep chest! As soon as his foster family picked him up from the shelter, they knew that he is a great dog. He got in the car and laid down right away. Within an hour of getting home, he was playing with the family, flopping on his back for belly rubs, coming to his new people for head scratches, and showing off his ever-wagging tail. He is super gentle with children, and loves being by your side every moment you’re home. Rocky knows the commands for sit, down, come, “you wait,” and of course “belly!” He is house trained, doggy door trained, and can be trusted with free roaming. He loves car rides and going for walks. If you think your sub-woofer is making an odd sound, it’s Rocky. He’s not a big barker, but when he does, it is a noticeable, big, deep bellow. He gets along well with other dogs and is nice to cats. Rocky does not like being confined behind gates, left outside, or closed in a crate. He likes going inside his crate if the door is propped open. He likes being outside, as long he can come back in.

      Breed: Great Pyrenees
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Great Pyrenees (long coat). REQUIREMENTS FOR ADOPTION OF THIS PUPPY: 1) THIS PUPPY WILL ONLY BE PLACED IN A HOME WITH YOUTHFUL, PLAYFUL, DOGS. This helps integrate the dog into your household easier by giving the pup a mentor. 2) In addition to the youthful playful dog, someone MUST also be home at least part of the day. Please do not apply for this puppy if you are gone 8-10 hours a day. It is not good situation for you or the puppy. 3) You must have plans in place to socialize your puppy properly. 4) This puppy is not a livestock dog. He must be a family pet that is allowed inside the home. Please watch this short video which demonstrates the reasons behind our adoption requirements for this puppy. https://youtu.be/3aoG4Ia_9P0 Meet Gigi! This beauty came into rescue after finding herself in a shelter. She was born around 3/3/2017. This young lady gets along great with other dogs. She needs a large dog companion in her forever home. She has lots of puppy exuberance, and needs a dog that will rough-house with her to expend her play energy. She’s also really cute when playing with her toys. She wants to be alpha (boss) of the household over all other dogs and humans, so she requires a firm and strong two-legged leader to avoid problems. At this point, we wouldn’t call her “obedient.” We’d call her “testing her Pyr independence and ability to wield power.” She can be shy upon meeting new people. As she recovers the confidence she lost as a stray, she will likely become more brave. Gorgeous Gigi is house trained, crate trained, and rides nicely in a car. We’re working on her leash training; she just needs a little more experience in this area. SPIN Pyrs are all in foster homes in the Dallas/Fort Worth area.

      Breed: Great Pyrenees
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Great Pyrenees (long coat). Meet Dirk! This gorgeous, big, affectionate Great Pyrenees boy loves his humans! He was born approximately August 1, 2013. Dirk is a sweet soul who had a bit of a rough start in life - he has lost one hind leg. Dirk does not want you to feel sorry for him. He wants family who will treat him like a normal dog and provide him with a secure, stable life. Above all, he wants to be loved, be accepted, and feel secure. He needs a calm, quiet home with adults only. We want to be sure he doesn’t accidentally get knocked down. He is not one to take for walks, as he does not take kindly to seeing other dogs when he’s out. He would do best in a home where he can stay in the house and back yard, and doesn’t have to go for walks; he finds them stressful rather than fun. This handsome boy is house trained, crate trained, and rides nicely in a car. He is pretty responsive (for a Pyr) to basic commands such as come, sit, down, crate, go. He is playful and likes to play with toys. He loves, loves to be brushed with any kind of brush you have! He can be an only dog if his humans are home a lot, or he can live in a home with other dogs of a certain temperament. What he needs in a canine companion is a male or female who is confident, laid back, nonreactive, and can anchor him and provide him with a sense of security. He has high prey drive and cannot be in a home with cats or other small critters. Dirk is not one for a novice dog owner. He will do best with someone who is experienced with dogs and who has some knowledge of dog behavior and their body language. Dirk is available for adoption exclusively in the Dallas/Fort Worth area, or someone willing to drive to the area to get him. SPIN Pyrs are all in foster homes in the Dallas/Fort Worth area.

      Posted Breed: Great Pyrenees (long coat). Meet Mitchell! He is an absolutely gorgeous Great Pyrenees born around April 16, 2014. And he is a big boy at 95 pounds! He exhibits nothing less than typical Pyr confidence, trust, and adaptability. This marvelous boy loves every person he meets. He relishes your attention, and will even bury his nose in your tummy! As a laid-back dude, he prefers the company of adults over children; the young ones bring too much excitement for his taste. He can get along with teenagers if they are quiet and calm. He is equally selective about his canine companions. He insists that they be female, and smaller than he is. He absolutely does not tolerate dark-coated male dogs or any dog larger than he is. He enjoys an early morning romp with his smaller doggy girlfriends, then he likes to chillax for the rest of his day. He prefers that his pack remain small – just one or two more dogs in the house is plenty for him. Mitchell is house trained and leash trained, but don’t plan on taking him on any pleasure rides! He does not like to travel – at all. And don’t try to crate him – he absolutely will not go in a crate, and there’s no need for it in his case. Mitchell is ready for his forever home. He still has a playful side but has left those puppy habits behind, so there’s need to worry about him eating your furniture or your slippers! Mitchell is available for adoption exclusively in the Dallas/Fort Worth area. His wish list is small. He just wants someone to keep him safe and love him unconditionally. Simple as that.

This adorable guy was born on April 23, 2017. He was found as a stray before coming into rescue. He is goofy, playful, and likes toys and he will have you laughing at his silly antics. He loves playing with the large dogs in his foster home. And he loves kids! He plays nicely with them and even walks nicely on leash for them. He is housetrained and rides nicely in the car. He is crate trained although he would rather sleep on his bed or on the tile. He is still testing his independence. His foster mom is explaining things to him, and he’s beginning to understand that he’s expected to be polite. In his new home, he needs someone who is home a lot while he’s still in his puppy stage. He knows how to sit, lay and is good about not chewing on things that he shouldn't. This cute little fella is growing fast and is not going to be little for long. He needs a large dog companion in his forever home. He has lots of puppy exuberance, and needs a dog that will rough-house with him to expend his play energy. Now is the best time to jump in and continue mentoring him. It is going to be so fun watching him fill out and fit into those big paws. He hasn’t met any cats yet, so we don’t know how he’d do with them in the household. SPIN Pyrs are all in foster homes in the Dallas/Fort Worth area.

      Posted Breed: Great Pyrenees / Rottweiler / Mixed (short coat). Meet Neffie! She is a gorgeous Great Pyrenees mix with striking color features. Weighing in at 125 pounds, she is 1/2 Pyr, 1/4 Rottweiler, 1/8 Greyhound, and 1/8 terrier! Neffie was born around November 1, 2012 and has quite a bit of energy. Take her on a walk or to play outside, and you'll see her puppy side come out! When she’s done romping, she loves to be under your hand as much as possible, soaking up all the love you have to give. She is a couch cuddler most of the time. She is a low-maintenance girl and is super-eager to please. Neffie has bothersome air-borne allergies that cause her skin to itch like crazy. This is usually a life-long condition that can be controlled with allergy medicine. We have placed dogs like her in the southwestern states in the drier desert-type environment, and their allergy symptoms virtually disappeared. She was in rough shape before coming into rescue. Her allergies and itching caused various skin conditions from which she is recovering well. She had joint stiffness from years of lying on hard floors, lack of good care, and lack of exercise. It would be great if her new home doesn’t have stairs, and if it has carpet or rugs to help her get traction. Because of her large size, Neffie would do best in a home without small children. We don’t want them getting accidentally knocked down. She gets along well with other dogs. She would be happy with a doggie companion, or as an only dog. She’s even good with cats!
