Hello, my name is: Maddie

My nickname is: Maddie Girl, Smiley, Silly

I live in: Texas City, TX. I am a Texas girl who is very open to relocating out west!

My breed is: Great Pyrenees

My approximate weight is: around 60 pounds. My foster mom thinks I'm a pocket pyr who likely won't get much bigger!

My age is: about ten months. I love life like a true puppy but am potty trained. Win/win!

My favorite thing to eat is: Anything! I love my kibble but will quickly sit for a treat.

My favorite thing to play with is: My canine foster brother, who taught me how to guard my foster home with my bark.

My funniest quirk is: I love running laps in the yard when I first go outside, rain or shine! I also love giving kisses to my people and my siblings.

What do I get in trouble for: I am still figuring out what is a toy and what is not, but my foster family is helping me learn by keeping me well-stocked with things to play with.

What I dislike the most: When I first got to my foster home, I was confused about how to walk on the vinyl flooring.

What makes me unique: I sometimes tilt my head to listen when I am being talked to, and my foster mom thinks it is adorable.

Where do I sleep: In my crate, happily.

Do I love car rides: I do really well in the car! I settle quickly and lie down.

Where's my favorite place to go: Wherever my family is!

Do I like cats: In my foster home, I live harmoniously with four cats (one of which has no concept of personal space). I also stay with large and small dogs and accept correction very well from my siblings.

How I feel about my crate: I eagerly go in my crate for meals and sleep.

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 vaccines, flea preventative, deworming, and health certificate for travel). Adopters located outside of Texas pay the cost of transport to an independent transport service ($250).

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!

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.
