1 yr 2 mths
Great Pyrenees

I’m Maxwell, just over a year old, 94 lbs. and so far in my young life I’ve lived in a shelter and probably two different homes although I only know about my current one for sure.  That’s a lot of change, mixed with very little training, so I’m looking for an experienced dog family to bring out all my pawesomeness! I’m full of energy, need exercise, crave attention, and greet people of all sizes and ages like friends, even if I’ve never met them. I’m less fond of cats and moving cars. I’ve been known to give chase. As a former shelter dog I’m naturally a bit protective of my food, dig when I’m feeling trapped, and sometimes chew stuff humans say isn’t edible. Obviously I disagree—smelly stuff is the best!—but I’m willing to change to win your heart. Oh, here’s a tip: a spritz of water mist in my nose will speed up the training because I hate water from spray bottles. I can save you money on dog toys, too, they’re not really my thing. But, I do like those raw bones that are safe for dogs. What do you think so far? Want to help a giant puppy be a well-behaved, much-loved giant dog?

Our main mission at GPRA is to find the right permanent home for Great Pyrenees in distress, whether they are strays or from an overpopulated kill or no-kill shelter. We don’t care how old they are or what their medical condition is because we will make sure they receive a comprehensive medical evaluation, spaying or neutering, and even behavioral training if necessary.
