“Hello, my name is Veggie!” My nickname is Vegemite, and I am currently being fostered in Seattle. I am part Pyr, and the rest seems to be a mixture of assembled random parts. I’ve got the fluff and the heart of the Pyr and the legs of a Basset. I have a tail of a Lab and the persistence of an Australian Shepherd. I think my feet may be from a different species altogether…maybe duck? I have the soulful eyes of a Bloodhound. But in short, I am the pyrfect mix.

I am about 15 weeks old. I love to eat. Period. I will work for treats. I love all toys, chew bones, and anything that squeaks and balls are fun to chase too.

My funniest quirk is that I sleep with my mouth open, so sometimes my tongue hangs out. I sometimes get into trouble, but what puppy doesn’t? I mean, come on, we are learning! Luckily I am a fast learner. I just don’t see why my foster mom’s slippers are off-limits!

I don’t like going to bed a night. I will put up a bit of a stink, but once I’m out, I’m good all night until you wake me up in the morning. I’m not a fan of my crate at night, and so I have arranged to sleep in my foster parent’s room in my dog bed. I’ve been doing a pretty good job with that as long as I am snuggled and tucked in a night with kisses and belly rubs before bed.

I am unique in that I love to snuggle with everyone and anyone. I can completely lose myself in your arms…for hours. I think my favorite thing is to bury my face in your neck, close my eyes, and sigh with contentment. I eat my meals in my crate, and I stay in my crate when the humans have to leave the house. I don’t love it, but I will go in willingly for treats. I haven’t met any cats, so not sure how that will go, but I’m respectful of the older dog here. I love kids. I am curious about the noises the guinea pig makes, but since she can’t play, I leave her well enough alone. That’s me in a nutshell! I can’t wait to find my furever family!!!

PUPPIES ARE ONLY PLACED IN HOMES WITH YOUTHFUL, PLAYFUL RESIDENT DOGS WHO ARE AT LEAST 50 POUNDS.

Our requirements for puppy adoptions are simple and necessary.

  1. Our puppies are not livestock guardians, they are family pets that live inside of the family home.
  2. Puppies must be placed in homes with a youthful, adult resident dog of similar size. This gives the puppy a mentor and a solid foundation for becoming part of the family.
  3. Puppies are only adopted to homes with someone at home at least part of the day. If no one is home for 6-8 hours at a time, please do not apply.
  4. Preference is always given to those with Great Pyrenees experience.
  5. Applicants must have secure, visible fencing and a socialization plan in place.
  6. The fastest way to be considered for a puppy is to fill out an application. Adoption is not first come, first served. GPRS and its fosters work diligently to find the right fit for each and every unique dog and puppy.
  7. Applicant’s personal pets must be current on vaccines & heartworm/flea prevention and be altered.

 

Adoption fee: $450 (Adoption fee includes spay or neuter, distemper/parvo shot, flea preventative, deworming, and health certificate for travel.). Adopters outside of Texas pay the cost of transport to independent transport service ($225).

GPRS has proudly placed thousands of Great Pyrenees and GP mixes in the PNW for over a decade. Our volunteers have over 100 years combined experience fostering, screening, and placing this majestic breed into loving, forever homes. When adopting from us, you can rest assured that we provide life-long support and advice when it comes to your new family member. As always, our purpose is to find the best match for every unique dog that comes through our doors. Taking the time to find the right fit comes first and foremost at the Great Pyrenees Rescue Society. If you are interested in adopting, please take the time, and apply. You will see firsthand how much care, attention and love goes into the process, when you are guided a personal screener. This is why we have people come back again and again for their next family member! See all our dogs, fill out an application and discover why we are the BEST at placing the right dog in the right home! https://gprs.rescuegroups.org/.

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.
