Rescue Me ID: 18-05-15-00523Thaddeus (male)

Great Pyrenees    Age: Senior

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

    Thaddeus is a gorgeous Great Pyrenees guy that wants to spend his senior years with a loving family. Here are 11 things that Thad wants his perfect people to know about him: 1. I was found on the side of the road. The nice people that stopped for me thought I had been hit by a car, but that wasn't it. I had just been walking for a very long time, which had made my arthritis hurt pretty bad! 2. Since I've been in rescue, my life has changed for the better. I've gained some much needed weight and the new anti-inflammatory medicine my foster mom gives me every day makes me feel like a pup again. 3. I also got a new hairdo! Because I ... (Read More)had been homeless for so long, my coat was really dirty and matted, and there were lots of ticks and fleas hiding in all that fur. Although the nice people tried to wash and brush me, they soon realized that I really just needed a fresh start. The next thing I knew, I had a new haircut (and almost no hair left)! 4. Even though the trim was a vast improvement, it caused another complication. You see, I started feeling super excited about how great my new life was, and I would wag my tail ALL the time. Sometimes I would wag my tail while I was standing really close to a wall, and without all the furry padding that I was used to, I ended up with 'happy tail.' My foster mom tried lots of things to fix it, but the veterinarian decided it was better to dock my tail than to risk an infection. So now I'm the proud owner of a 'nub!' 5. Because I've been on the mend for most of the time I've been in rescue, I haven't had the opportunity to spend a lot of time with other dogs. However, I've liked all the dogs I've seen or met briefly, no matter their size. 6. I see lots of cats around the neighborhood, and I really don't have much interest in them. 7. Like most Great Pyrenees, I can be protective of my space when strangers approach. However, when I'm out and about, I love all people and I'm very affectionate and gentle. 8. I haven't been around children since I've been in rescue, but I think it would be okay if my new home had kids, as long as they aren't very young or rambunctious. 9. I enjoy spending time with my people, going for slow walks, and, of course, eating! 10. I am wonderful on a leash, and know how to sit. 11. I am current on vaccinations, neutered, HW- and microchipped. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Ready to give Thaddeus the forever home of his dreams?

Rescue Me ID: 18-02-26-00328  (male)

Great Pyrenees    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Cats, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Bosco is a healthy3 year old great Pyrenees whom we rescued 2 years ago. He was underweight, untrained and had never been to a vet. We have worked extensively with him to help him acclimate to being a good family dog. He has come a long way. However he is still not a good fit for our family as groups of children make him nervous and he becomes overly excited and on occasion territorial. I operate an art studio/art school from our home and it is a constant piece of management to keep him separated from my students as he does not tolerate seeing them inside even through the window. I would definitely not describe him as vicious but I am ... (Read More)concerned that he could hurt someone accidentally. He is good with our small dog and our cats are his best friends. He is gentle to our chickens and herds toward the coop them if they go too far out in the yard. We love him very much and will only let him go to a loving home or farm where he can live happily.

Great Pyrenees Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    UPDATE: ** Rachel's brother was adopted and the adopter did a DNA test on him. Here is the breed breakdown: American Staffordshire Terrier 37%, Boxer 12.5%, Standard Bulldog 12.5%, German Shepherd 12.5%, Great Pyrenees 12.5%, and mixed Breeds 12.5%. **Meet RACHEL! Rachel is about ten months to a year old. This sweet girl and her brother, Petey, were abandoned when she got pregnant in the middle of a rural road. Rescue saved them and spayed and neutered them and had them completely vetted. Rachel is very good with other dogs, house trained, and do pretty good on a leash as well. Rachel has sufficient Walker Hound in her so that she can climb ... (Read More)small fences, so a privacy fence is a must. Both really just want to be lap dogs and love to lick you all over your face. They are mostly labrador retriever as they absolutely LOVE THE WATER! We suspect they may have a bit of fox hound and possibly some german shepherd in the mix as well. They are 100% sweetness overload and would make perfect family pets as they adore children.
