  “A dog’s life shouldn’t be so ruff.” Dezzi is a sweet, goofy 3-year-old Great Pyrenees who has hope for a brighter day. The home she knew all her life caught on fire and one of her parents didn't make it out. The grief was too much for her remaining parent to handle and Dezzi went to live with a relative. It was fine for a while, but they decided they couldn't keep her. They contacted the Great Pyrenees Rescue Society for help and she is now living with a wonderful foster family in Snohomish.

Her foster mom says “She is very, very loving and wants to lay her head on you and look up at you with her sad, soulful brown eyes. She loves to lie on the rug in my office while I am working.”

Her foster mom feels Dezzi would benefit from having a resident dog to help her learn more to be a “dog”. She plays well with her dogs but she is a vocal player (likes to bark). She will need a tall secure fenced yard to play in and to keep her confined. She is a runner and would fit in well with an active person or family with older considerate kids. She would not do well with a home with small animals as she gets overly excited about the foster’s small farm animals.

Dezzi is housebroken, crate trained, and is learning to walk nicely on a leash. She is tall and thin most likely because she is a very picky eater. Her foster mom has been preparing tasty meals and it’s been a slow process getting weight to stay on.

Dezzi is an intelligent girl and needs confident leaders in his family that can provide firm but loving boundaries. The Great Pyrenees breed is calm, well-mannered, and known for their great devotion to their family. These dogs are generally trustworthy, loving, and kind, but if the need arises, they will not hesitate to try to protect their family and their home. If you have the love and patience to make Dezzi’s life less ruff, complete an application today.

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!
