Posted Breed: Great Pyrenees (long coat). Meet Samson. Samson is a four year old, purebred, neutered (and up to date on shots) Great Pyrenees. True to the breed, this boy is vocal and likes to protect his family. For this very reason (and some bark complaints), his family is having to rehome him due to the close quarters in which they currently live. Samson exhibits many of the familiar traits Pyrenees are known for - barking, protectiveness, and loyalty. He likes to look out for his owners and will bark / growl when people approach his home. Upon introduction from his owners, he does just fine. Samson is great with kiddos and would be a loyal family pet. He hasn't shown any attempts to get out of a fenced yard, but like all Pyrs, will require a good fence to keep him home and safe. He'd most enjoy a family that includes him in their lives and doesn't leave him home alone for long periods of time, as it makes him nervous. He is good with other dogs; we're unsure about cats. He'll be a great buddy and protector for a family that loves and understands the Pyr personality. Is that you? Samson is currently residing in Utah; GPRM will assist with his transport to his new home.

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.

      Breed: Great Pyrenees-Saint Bernard Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Great Pyrenees / Saint Bernard / Mixed (long coat). Meet Cocoa! Cocoa is a 2 y/o male (soon to be neutered), a mix of Great Pyrenees, St. Bernard, & Husky. GPRM rescued him from shelter life where he had been turned in by his previous owner for escaping and chasing deer too often. He is currently being fostered in UT, and GPRM will help arrange transport to his new home. Cocoa develops attachments easily to his people and would do best as a family companion pet. He likes structure and does well with new training and plenty of activity. He can be a bit of an escape artist and will require a 6 ft.+ fence. He does well with other dogs (as long as they don't show aggression towards him). He hasn't spent much time around cats, but didn't show any aggression towards the ones in the shelter. Cocoa is currently around 60 lbs. but is quite skinny and could use a good diet with some healthy weight gain. He's scheduled to be neutered in early January, and will then be available for adoption mid-month. He'd do best in a family that will spend lots of time with him, keep him busy, and include him in family activities.

      Breed: Great Pyrenees-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Great Pyrenees / Mixed (long coat). Meet Appa. He's a 2.5 year old neutered male, likely a mix of Great Pyrenees and Akbash. Appa is looking for a new home, free of cats. He loves other dogs, kiddos, and is a very friendly boy... he just feels it's his mission in life to rid the world of cats. Appa's mom was found on the side of the road, sick and starving to death. When she was picked up, they weren't aware she was pregnant. Appa was born and placed with a family that had two other dogs. When a baby came along, Appa's "Pyr barking" became an issue for the family and he was rehomed. His 2nd and current home has cats and it's created quite a problem. This guy has everything going for him and would do well in a home where he's included in family activities (he's currently going to work with his mom!). He does just great with other furry dog members of the family, as well as kiddos. He has been trained to stay off of furniture and will only join you if invited. He doesn't have any food aggression but would prefer not to share his treats with the other dogs. Would you consider giving this wonderful guy a new forever home?

      Breed: Great Pyrenees
      Sex: Female Female
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Great Pyrenees (long coat). Snowball (or just Snow) is 3 years old, and although she is part of the groupd of 8 Pyrenees/Komondors, she is a purebred Pyrenees that came to the ranch as a yearling. She has always been shy and withdrawn. She will take a special caretaker because though she is sweet she is very shy. She has worked as a herd dog but seems intent on coming over the fences to shadow her owner wherever he is working. Snow has all her shots but is only partially leashed trained. She will kennel upon command but also likes her freedom.

      Breed: Great Pyrenees
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Great Pyrenees (long coat). Sheeba is 2 years old and another member of the group of 8 Pyrenees/Komondor crosses. Her father is Olaf, a purebred son of Snow, who has been an excellent herd dog. Sheeba has been a fair herd dog, but like her mother Seraphim, she has begun coming over the fences to follow her owner, wander, and chase cars. Sheeba is sweet but shy, somewhat leash trained but needs more work. She has all her shots and is spayed. She is used to being free but also has become used to the kennel while she healed up from a broken leg.
