This little cutie has had a rough start to life. She and her four siblings were taken to a shelter and left because the owner could not find homes for them. One was adopted, and she and her three sisters were taken to a vet's office to board until transportation could be arranged for them. One of her sisters died and Ella almost did from Parvo. She was treated and saved and is just fine now and a very sweet and friendly pup. She is about 16 weeks old, and does well with other dogs, cats and young children too. Ella will be placed as inside pet with outside privileges to a secure above ground fenced yard. Pyrs do not do well with wireless fencing. We require obedience training for all dogs adopted less than one year old and puppy training class, too, to help you create a special bond with you and your new friend and so you have a well behaved and well socialized dog.

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. 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. Visit www.nationalpyr.org to learn more about us, our mission and our breed. More Information: Questions? The fastest way to learn more about a dog is to fill out the application form. If you call or e-mail you are reducing your chances of adopting as we direct our time and energy to first serving those who apply. For more information about our adoption process please visit our adoption information page. Want to help but can’t adopt now? You can make a tax-exempt donation by visiting our donation page. We have many Pyrs and Pyr mixes who need homes and not all of them are posted. You can see more of these beautiful dogs by clicking on Rescue Dogs.
