BIG DOGS RULE! Durango is a big, good-looking, sweet 3 ½ years old male Great Pyrenees and Anatolian Shepherd mix (our best guess).  He weighs 110 lbs and stands proudly with his beautiful block head and badger markings. His coat is thick and a bit shorter than a Pyrenees, nevertheless he is still big, handsome and definitely a babe.  

Before coming to the Great Pyrenees Rescue Society, our volunteers followed this stray dog that was zigzagging in and out of traffic trying to avoid being hit by cars. It took them two weeks to capture Durango and we are glad they were determined. They did a marvelous job and we are thankful. 

Durango is obedient, house trained, crate trained and walks well on a leash. He is definitely a ladies’ man as he prefers female dogs and a home without cats and male dogs. His idea of fun is romping around his yard as he is not a dog park kind-of-guy. He would do well as an only dog with the right family situation and could live in an apartment or condo if he was taken on lots of walks during the day. He likes kids, but because he’s so big, kids in his family need to be older as he could accidentally knock them over while playing.

If you need someone to ride shotgun or watch TV with - Durango can be your affectionate snuggle buddy. Durango would benefit having a strong leader in his family that knows his breed.  Pyrs are exceptionally smart and need to be challenged. Being given some more training with consistency, patience and love, Durango is becoming a devoted, loyal, loving family companion. Let’s find this handsome hunk a home where he will be truly loved and doesn’t run the streets afraid and alone again. Durango is located in Texas and can be on next transport to the Northwest.

All dogs and puppies require VISIBLE fencing  Adoption Fee:  $300.  Every GPRS dog is fully vetted (current on shots and has been spayed/neutered).  Adoption applications can be found on our website at  https://www.greatpyreneesrescuesociety.orgNorthwest adopters pay the cost of transport to independent transport service ($200).  ADOPTION, FOSTERING, AND DONATIONS are just some of the ways you can help a rescued dog.  We have worked hard to cultivate a large network of volunteers to save this majestic breed.  While monetary donations are always much appreciated, you can also help by donating your time as a GPRS foster or volunteer!
