Biella, 1 yr old
Biella and Novarra are littermates, and are a well bonded pair. Unlike some Pyrenees siblings they actually LOVE each other and would prefer to be adopted together. Biella is the smaller of the two and is only about 65 lbs, which is super small for a Pyrenees, but to our knowledge, she is purebred. Biella was very feral and did not know people at all when she came to us 8 months ago. She LOVES people now, and while she is still a little wary, will approach and accept love and pets. She is working on her leash walking, but will require additional training to perfect her walking skills. Biella is a dog that LOVES affection and will not want to leave your side.

Novarra, 1 yr old
Novarra is the best friend of Biella and would like to be adopted with her sister. Novarra is also a smaller girl at 75 lbs, and has the most unique feature! She was born with not only double dew claws on her rear feet, but also on her front! Novarra is super submissive and gets along with all other dogs large and small. She and Biella are completely non-aggressive and have no issues with food possession or resource guarding. They have been primarily outside girls, and are accustomed to super low temperatures and snow, but are also crate trained and can live in the house. Both Biella and Novarra will need spays before they are ready to go.

Sadi (4 years old)
Sadi is a tranquil and sweet girl who loves to be in the house and is super affectionate and a wonderful guard dog. She listens well and her favorite place is at your feet. She is great with kids, wonderful with all small animals including cats, and has been around goats, and chickens. She has received her Spay December 5th, and is ready for her new home. Sadi is a moderate size girl at 95 lbs. Sadi is good with other males but would not likely mix well with other female dogs. She definitely prefers the companionship of the guys!
Please Scroll Down To View Our Available Adoptions
Our adoptions go through a 3-6 month to a year process of assessment, rehabilitation, training and physical preparation. As an approved IRS 501-C3 rescue, we are contacted by other rescue groups, participate in rescue efforts in conjunction with local authorities such as; County shelters, City animal welfare, national rescue groups, and veterinary offices, and are contacted directly by individuals who need to surrender their Pyrenees dogs. Our passion for the breed leads us to places far and near where there are Pyrs in need, and we have taken in Pyrs from Maine to Florida. We do occasionally have puppies available for adoption, but because puppies present challenges older dogs do not, and typically require more veterinary intervention, and treatments prior to being ready for adoption, we rarely have puppies for adoption that are less than 12 weeks of age. Great Pyrenees dogs as an extra large breed, require spaying and neutering that preserves their hormones intact (Ovary Sparing Spay and Vasectomy), rather than the traditional spay/neuter. This means it is necessary for puppies to remain with us for a longer period of time to ensure that they are unable to breed, but are healthier due to leaving their sex hormones in place for normal growth and development. This also increases the cost of spay/neuter, but in the long run provides for a longer healthier life. Please be prepared for an adoption fee in the range of $300 to $600
Andi (4 years old)
Andi is a SUPER big girl. Andi is very tall and graceful, and super affectionate, and a very athletic girl. She will need a good fence because she is so tall! She is also well house trained and will be a good indoor girl. She just wants to be your shadow and follow you wherever you go. Andi requires a younger owner because she is super strong. She walks well on the leash, but we are workng on her pulling and with her size and strength, needs a person who is prepared to handle her. Andi is also spayed and ready for her new home.
Gerard,(5 years old)
Gerard is a former abuse case out of Great Pyrenees Rescue of Atlanta. He was scheduled for Euthanasia when we stepped in. Listening to his story, we were convinced that he was a misunderstood guy with trauma in his past that affected his ability to understand people. He had no idea that people could be gentle, caring, loving and attentive. He has been steadily progressing and allows grooming, and trimming of his feet, etc. He does have his rules though, and you'd need to expect to move slowly gaining his trust before trying new things. He wants love and attention,and is a super chill guy. His ideal home would be as a single dog with not too many visitors, no young children, and no one who isn't capable of following the dog rules closely. He is very good in the house, doesn't make a mess and really doesn't like to get dirty. He responds well to routine, and is a super good boy on the walk. He is kennel trained, and has no problem spending the night in his kennel, or perhaps during the day while you are out. He does not have fear of storms or loud noises and is calm and non-reactive in his kennel. We believe his abuser many have been a woman because he is wary of women, but doesn't seem to have an issue with men. We do not know how he would react to cats, but he can be aggressive with other male dogs. Some females he tolerates well if they do not get in his face or jump on him. Gerard was neutered some time ago and is up to date on all shots. He is ready to go upon an approved home for him.
