“He is like a giant teddy bear.” Ted is a friendly, and confident 8-month-old Pyr puppy. He is a playful, affectionate puppy who likes to receive pets, hugs, belly rubs and will follow you, lean on you, and give you the obligatory Pyr Paw. He likes all the attention and affection you can dish out.
Ted is house trained, walks nice on a leash, likes to chew on his toys. He loves to be groomed, enjoys his dog walks, and likes playing with his canine foster siblings. He is treat motivated and can be a big couch potato.
He would do well in an active home with older, considerate children and a non-alpha resident canine companion. Slow introductions to family pets would make for a smooth transition for Ted in his forever home. He will need confident leaders in his family that are familiar with Pyr habits and traits. A stay-at-home person would benefit Ted as he loves to have his people around.

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.
Our puppies are not livestock guardians, they are family pets that live inside of the family home.
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.
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.
Preference is always given to those with Great Pyrenees experience.
Applicants must have secure, visible fencing and a socialization plan in place.
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.
Applicant’s personal pets must be current on vaccines & heartworm/flea prevention and be altered.
Adoption fee: $450 (Adoption fee includes spay/neuter, heartworm test, rabies, distemper, parvo and health certificate for travel). Northwest adopters pay the cost of transport to independent transport service ($225).
