Adopt a Dog with Great Pyrenees Rescue Society: Find Your Pyr-fect Furry Friend

Thank you for your interest in our dogs! We know that when you adopt a Great Pyrenees, you will be adding a valuable member to your family. If you have more questions, see Great Pyrenees Facts that can address any concerns that you might have.  

I Want to Adopt a Dog But Have Certain Preferences

While every dog is adoptable , every dog is different. Each dog has their own personality – and that’s right, preferences too. There is no one-size-fits-all when it comes to man’s best friend. This is why we only match certain dogs with certain owners . When you’re deciding on which dog might suit your personality or life, it’s helpful to take a look at our adoption pages which give you more information about each individual dog available for adoption. 

Do You Have a Puppy or Younger Dog for Adoption?

We have both teens and puppies to adopt. Keep in mind that puppies have not yet fully developed their unique personalities. Just as children grow and change, so do puppies, but you can get all the playfulness of a puppy by adopting a teen dog instead.

What Is the Process When You Want to Foster to Adopt a Dog?

If you’re not sure if you want to permanently adopt a Great Pyrenees, you may try to foster to adopt a dog. When you are a dog foster, the dog stays with you until someone adopts. This can be tricky, as you might realize sooner than later that you don’t want to let them go! Someone that fosters a dog must accept this, but if your intention is to find the perfect dog for you, you may apply to adopt the dog before someone else is approved.
