Posted Breed: Great Pyrenees (long coat). Adoption Fee: 200.00. 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 being fostered in Missoula, MT; 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: Golden Pyrenees
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Great Pyrenees / Golden Retriever / Mixed (medium coat). Adoption Fee: 200.00. There's no sweeter boy than this gentle giant puppy, Denali! Denali arrived to us as an owner surrender. Sadly, they said they didn't have enough time for him and felt he was getting too big. At 8 months, he's a big boy weighing in at 90 lbs. He's as sweet and gentle as they come, and will bring joy to whatever lucky family gets him! Denali plays very well with other dogs. He's friendly and just wants everyone to get along! He loves the company of children and would do very well in a family with kiddos and other dogs. He also appears to be just fine with cats, too! He's a bit timid in new situations but warms up quickly (especially with the confidence of his owner behind him). He would do best with someone that understands this breed and is willing to put some time into building his trust, confidence, and training. Denali would enjoy the company of another dog in the home, preferably one that isn't overly dominating or pushy. He's currently being fostered in SLC, but as always, GPRM will help transport him, like any of our dogs, to his new family! Denali is currently unaltered but will be neutered shortly. Now accepting applications for this handsome boy!

      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Great Pyrenees (medium coat). Adoption Fee: 200.00. Say hello to Tucker, a 3 year old intact Great Pyrenees. Tucker is a bit of a mystery as far as background, but we know that he is a very sweet boy - also that at some point he incurred an injury to a hind leg that was never repaired resulting in his leg being fairly stiff. When Tucker and his sister Dixie are running and playing, he pays no attention to his stiff leg. Tucker is being fostered at DogLogic in Missoula and we are working to get his neuter appointment set up ASAP. Tucker will respond when he is on a leash but he could use some training if you don't want one arm to be longer than the other - he can pull!!! If you want a kind dog that just needs some "finishing" to be Pyrfect, you need to meet Tucker.

      Breed: Great Pyrenees-Maremma Sheepdog Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Maremma Sheepdog / Great Pyrenees / Mixed (medium coat). Adoption Fee: 200.00. Meet Ronin! Ronin is a 13 month old Mareema/ Pyr mix. This friendly guy was surrendered to a shelter because he was killing chickens instead of guarding them. He's currently being fostered outside of SLC and is loving being a family dog. He's very friendly, good with kiddos, other dogs, and is learning how to walk on a leash and be an indoor/outdoor dog. He's a quick learner! Ronin comes across as much more mature than his 13 months. In the short time he's been with his foster mom, he already sticks to her side like glue, and he definitely wants to love and be apart of a family. He enjoys the company of other dogs (and playing) and likes spending time outdoors (surprisingly, he hardly barks!). Interested in Ronin? Let us know! *Note: Ronin will be neutered before joining a new adoptive family.

      rescue
      Breed: Great Pyrenees
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Great Pyrenees (medium coat). Adoption Fee: 200.00. This big guy is an absolute love! Appa is looking for a new home, free of cats. His ideal home would be one that is highly active, as this boy is no couch potato! 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 home had too many cats for his liking... so he's on the search for his Pyrfect place! This guy has everything going for him and would do well in a home where he's included in family activities (he loves long walks, cross country skiing with his foster parents, + being with his pack). Appa needs a strong leader and it'd be great if his future family members were Pyr experienced. He generally does well with other furry family members, but prefers to be the biggest of the bunch (and seems to like females best). He has been trained to stay off of furniture and will only join you if invited. He loves to play with other dogs friends, enjoys car rides, and walks well on the leash. He would prefer a nice big yard (fenced) to run in. Would you consider giving this wonderful guy a new forever home? He's being fostered in Bozeman, MT, and would love to meet you! Appa has been previously adopted, but unfortunately, it didn't work out due to him and the other large male not getting along. We've also become more aware of how important consistent (and lots of!) exercise is to keeping this guy happy and balanced.

      Breed: Great Pyrenees
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Great Pyrenees (medium coat). Adoption Fee: 200.00. Meet Falcor! This 4 y /o, neutered, male Pyr is in search of his forever home! Falcor's current family took him in about a year ago when he was discovered in an abusive home and in danger of being taken to a shelter. Unfamiliar with the breed, they feel he would do best with a more experienced family that's willing to work with him (and appreciative of those traits us Pyr fans love most!). Falcor is extremely loving and is a big snuggler. He gets along well with other dogs (he currently lives with two!) and is amazing with kiddos of all ages. He wants to be involved with everything and often doesn't realize his own size! See pictures! He loves being with his family but is very happy to spend his time outside, too. This handsome boy is a bit of an escape artist and will definitely require a sturdy 6 ft. fence. He has not been crate trained and we feel he would benefit from this in his new home, as he's exhibited some signs of separation anxiety and being nervous when left alone for more than a few hours. Lastly, although he is neutered, he's been known to 'mark' in his current home. We 'suspect' this may have to do with animal smells from previous home owners, but cannot fully verify that. Falcor is up to date on all vaccinations and vet visits. He is currently residing in Montana, and would love to meet interested families! Contact us for more information, or fill out an application today!

      Posted Breed: Great Pyrenees (medium coat). Adoption Fee: 200.00. Meet Honey. This sweet 7 y/o spayed female came to us from a Utah, shelter as an owner surrender. She's great with other dogs, people (and supposedly with chickens, too!). Honey is pretty mellow and laidback and loves getting attention and pets from her people. She has a little bit of joint discomfort, but this will be alleviated by losing a few lbs (which her foster parents are helping her with). Honey will make a great addition to just about any family!

      Posted Breed: Great Pyrenees (medium coat). Adoption Fee: 200.00. Welcome to Ella (formerly known as Penelope)! Ella joined the GPRM family from a Utah shelter where she'd been brought in severely neglected. She's now living happily with her foster family outside of SLC. Like any of our dogs, we are happy to assist with Ella's transport to her new family! Ella is a bit shy and cautious at first, but with a little time (and her owner's confidence), she is willing to love again. She's friendly with other dogs and really likes older kiddos. We're unsure how she is around cats. We know she's spent a lot of time outdoors previously, but she's starting to warm up to 'house living,' and really just wants love and encouragement. Are you that special home for this beautiful girl? Fill out an application today!

This young guy has been passed around too much during his short life and is looking for his forever home! He's 'been given up on' either because of his size (and living in an apartment) or his energy level. Rocky would love a family with mature kiddos! He'd be fine with another dog too, but preferably one that doesn't try to dominate or assert themselves over him. No cats for this guy. He's got a lot of energy and just needs room and time to be a dog! He'd love a household that includes him in on activities (along with some good snuggles! He's very loving.). This boy is ready for some love and attention! Please go ahead and submit an application! GPRM will assist with transport in getting him to you.

      Breed: Border Collie-Great Pyrenees Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Great Pyrenees / Border Collie / Mixed (long coat). 5 year old Great Pyr / Border Collie mix, Jasper, is seeking a new home! His current owners rescued him from a life spent on a runner, tied to his clothesline. He had zero human interaction and was very fearful. Since his rescue in October, he has spent time with a trainer, trying to rehabilitate and become used to people. He has very few social skills due to limited amount of interaction with people or other animals. His trainer has worked with Jasper since end of October and he has come a long way! He will need a strong owner/handler. He should be an only pet and live with adults only. Jasper is protective of his owner and property. He does have aggression issues so would need the perfect match. Jasper will make an excellent protector. He is living with and under 24 hour care of his trainer and will remain there until we can find him a new place to live. Please help us spread the word about Jasper and find him a happy forever home that will appreciate him and continue to help him grow!
