Animal ID: 416Gambit (male)

Great Pyrenees Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Gambit Border Collie / Great Pyrenees mix Male 2 years old 82 lbs. Did you know that Great Pyrenees make really good doggy ninjas? It's true! For instance, while I - a handsome, adoptable Pyrenees/Collie mix - always start out sleeping next to my foster family's bed, I use my super ninja skills to end up sleeping in the bed, cuddled up with my humans. Very sneaky of me, yes? Gambit's the name and being near people is my game! The awesome folks at PawsCo are helping me find a forever home that can fit all 82 lbs. of my pure love. Not a lot is known about my past, but that doesn't bother me one bit! I focus on living and loving in the ... (Read More)present. Dogs, cats, kids, treats - I love them all (especially the treats). You should have seen me at the Denver Pet Expo! I was a star! I mean, how often do you combine the gorgeous multi-color coat of a Border Collie with the size and mellow attitude of a Pyrenees? Similar to my unique X-Men namesake, I steal hearts wherever I go. Since I do not have a ton of experience living in a house, I would love a family with the time and patience to help me become the best canine citizen possible. I have already mastered the basics, such as which bathroom is mine (the outside one!). Pleasing my people is my absolute favorite thing in the world, so I bet that I would be amazing at learning exciting tricks, especially if you motivate me with one or two or twelve treats. Hey, I'm a big guy! So if you are looking for a body-pillow in the form of a fluffy, lovable dog, look no further! Just send the folks at PawsCo an email at or fill out an adoption application on their website. I can't wait to meet ya! (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 14-07-03-00262Tosha (female)

Great Pyrenees    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Cats, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy 
Health: Vaccinations Current 

    Tosha's breed of dog is known within the United States as the Yugoslavian Shepherd, or in Yugoslavia as the Sarplaninac. Her breed personality is very much like that of a Grt Pyrenees and used to guard livestock. Sarplaninac very rare in North America. Tosha needs a 'special type of owner in her life because of her past abused life & genetic independent/stubborn breed traits! Her breed of dog is not for beginners. Its a very hard dog to train and keep trained! She 'needs' to have 'a loving & cool-headed (patience) owner' who's alpha-oriented yet 'nonphysical & trains with positive reinforcements, because Tosha was a very abused dog for most ... (Read More)of her life. HER NEW OWNERS MUST 'NOT BE AGGRESSIVE' TOWARDS SUCH INDEPENDENT TRAITS IF THINGS DONT GO THIER WAY EVERY TIME (their commands & wants of the dog), NO IF ANDS OR BUTS! Tosha is shy of anger & frustration energies many people exert towards life & at their dogs when they don't get what they want. Tosha is somewhat of a scaredy-cat due to her past & 'can't deal with negative energies directed at her or around her'! She will cower & try & keep her distance from you every time if you exert such energies. If you tend to lose your temper with dogs that won't always listen to your 1st, 2nd, 3rd or even 4th command given, then 'Tosha is not the dog for you' !If you are to show you're upset with her in using a loud aggressive upset voice, and or negative body language because she didn't listen to your commands off the bat you will certainly destroy your relationship with her. Especially if you become physical with her at any one time! It will only take one episode of mistreatment to alter & or destroy your relationship with Tosha forever The temperament of the breed is described as friendly, mellow, independent, reliable, protective but not snappy, incorruptible & devoted to their family & livestock. The breed is very calm until a threat presents itself. They are serene & majestic & very gentle. They also have a beautiful & astonishing low maintenance fur coat. These active & athletic dogs 'require large amounts of outside daily exercise to run & play'- Tosha does not play with balls. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 14-03-20-00312Roxy (female)

Great Pyrenees    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    This beautiful girl is looking for a new home/foster home! Roxy is a sweet, very gentle, laid back 7 year old Great Pyrenees. She wins over the hearts of all around her, even non-dog people. Roxy loves the outside in the winter and acts like a puppy when it snows. She runs, jumps and rolls all around. She loves to play chase with people and eat snowballs. In the summer she prefers to stay inside; laying on the air vent, stealing all the AC. She is always up for a walk or trip in the car. She enjoys hikes if it is not to warm (and will try to sniff everything she passes). Inside the house she will just lay around napping (most of the time, in ... (Read More)front of a door 'protecting' you) and be a giant pillow to hug and love on (you can lay all over her without so much as a sigh). She loves to look out the window to keep watch, but know, she will bark (with a tail wagging of course) at people who come to the door or walk past the house. Roxy is house trained and knows tons of commands. She is great with cats and with older children (age 8+). We feel that she needs to be the only dog in the household. Roxy enjoys the dog park, meeting dogs walks and hikes but has jealousy issues within the house. She becomes protective of her people, food and love. We are looking for someone with a fenced yard and lots of love to give! She is a wonderful dog who deserves the best! If you think Roxy is a good fit for you please complete our adoption application at (Less)
