Meet Pearl - New to Rescue - Foster Needed

Pearl is a 2 year old Great Pyrenees surrendered to a shelter for chasing cats. Most Great Pyrenees have a low prey drive and don't chase cats. We are not sure what exactly the situation was, but she is a very calm and loving girl and does well with other dogs. She is friendly, and calm, gentle and has a beautiful smile. She would be a good fit for a family too with her sweet spirit.

We recommend obedience training for all newly adopted pyrs, to help you create a special bond with you and your new friend, and so you have a well behaved canine. Great Pyrenees are willing to learn, but are not as eager to comply with commands as much as other breeds. They are bred to be independent thinkers. Applicants must be over 25, own their own home and all children in household must be over 6 years old. Your resident pets must be up to date on vaccines, sterilized, you must have a good history of vet care for them for the past two years, and you must have used heartworm preventative year round for your dogs and be able to provide proof of purchase for two years too.

Pearl will be placed as an inside pet with outside privileges. You MUST have a securely fenced yard accessible from your home. Invisible fencing does not work with this breed and they will take the shock for the freedom. Great Pyrenees are bred to roam and will create their own territory if not secured, which can led to them being lost, hit by vehicles or shot by people who see them as a threat. The breed is not a good off leash dog, and cannot be trusted to not run away. A Great Pyrenees off leash is a " DisAPyr."

We do not place dogs under age 2 with resident dogs of the same sex. As Great Pyrenees mature, they can become more dominant with dogs of the same sex in the household. The resident dog's personality is also taken into consideration too.
