Penny - Smart Cookie!   

In shelter Dog

Beacon, New York, 12508
Pet name:
Penny - Smart Cookie!
Great Pyrenees, Mixed
Coat length:
Petite Penny is looking for a furever home where she can be the princess of the castle and enjoy a lifestyle of being pampered and loved. This gorgeous girl is a doll, complete with soft, medium length coat that is wonderful to cuddle with and easy for regular maintenance - after all, a girl gotta look her best at all times, right? Penny is quite the smart cookie - she has mastered a number of basic cues and has excellent house manners. Nonetheless, being smart also means that Penny can get bored when there is nothing to occupy her mind, and she may end up finding ways to entertain herself. Being such a quick learner, Penny would most definitely benefit with regular exercise and enrichment activities - she may even excel in certain dog sports such as rally-obedience, nose work, or barn hunt! This goofy girl is not your regular couch potato, even though she will happily cuddle with you while you binge on the latest TV shows, she will also remind you of the benefit of regular exercise :) If you have the time and patience to work with Penny to satisfy her needs and help her channel her intelligence in a pawsitive manner, Penny will no doubt be your most loyal and loving companion for years to come!

Our goal is to assess every application on its own merits. Key considerations are: 1) the experience of the applicant with large breed dogs 2) children in the household or regularly visiting the household are ready for a large-breed dog who is a  guardian by nature  and 3) the sex of other dogs currently residing in the household to avoid same-sex aggression issues. For puppies under six months old, the applicant’s ability to socialize the puppy with older dogs is a priority. 

If you can't foster or adopt at this time, please consider helping our Neediest Cases.

About Us: National Great Pyrenees Rescue (NGPR) is not a shelter. We are a not-for-profit, tax-exempt coalition of Pyr rescuers and rescue groups. We save Pyrs and Pyr mixes across the country and place them in approved foster homes so we know how they will interact with 
family. Please consider adopting or fostering.  Every dog who is fostered or adopted makes room for another Pyr coming out of a kill shelter.  Prior to adoption, NGPR dogs are fostered for a minimum of two weeks (usually more), spayed or neutered and fully vetted. Dogs coming from out of area are certified with a USDA health certificate before going to their new homes. Our rescuers adhere to the highest placement standards and will  take back any dog  whose adoption does not succeed. Visit to learn more about us, our mission and our breed.
