Please contact Carolyn ( for more information about this pet. Yeti came into rescue with his house mate Nikita, displaced due to home foreclosure/eviction. Yeti is an Akbash boy 1 yr old, underweight at this time at 65 lbs, but will grow for 2 more years. He is long, tall, angular, smart, and quite the character & clown. He 'smiles' with his mouth open, wrinkles up his face when he is tickled, which is often. Yeti is completely house trained, leash trained, obedient, no vices. Jumps in & out of vehicle, well mannered at the vet, around strangers. Came from a large family with many toddlers/babies, good with small children, other animals, anyone, anything. He will be considered a giant breed when grown & he will be a protective guardian of his forever family. Smarter than the average bear, will require giant breed experience & owners who are willing to learn about the Turkish Akbash guardian breed. Stunning, awesome dog. 4 ft above ground fence is essential, 5 ft would be better for future growth.

Thanks. 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 to learn how they will interact with your family. Every dog who is fostered or adopted makes room for another Pyr coming out of a kill shelter. NGPR dogs are fostered for a minimum of two weeks or more, spayed or neutered and fully vetted before placement. NGPR will take back any dog who does not succeed in its new home. Many NGPR volunteers are members of the AKC breed club, adhere to their rescue guidelines for purebred Pyrs and apply these standards to the adoption of Pyr mixes as well.
