Did you know you can link your Randall's and Kroger cards to support the great Pyrenees rescue when you shop.

I am looking into fostering a GP, Newfie, or other giant breed in need.  I think our Newf would love the company.


@Littlegoo:

Houston GP rescue needs fosters


@FoFa:
Yeah, I sent them an e-mail to let them know we're interested.  I also reached out to the Shiba Inu rescue to let them know we're interested to help too.  I used to have 2 Shibas, and I LOVE that breed so much,  however, they are quite rare around here.  I found one of Craigslist that needs to be rehomed, and I reached out to her to let her know we are interested, but she never got back to me.  Oh well.  They are definitely a challenging breed, and not for everyone.

This dog does not look like a purebred Great "P" puppy.  Looks to be a mixture.  He looks like he will top out at around 60 pounds full grown (just guessing); doesn't have the "bone" or the large head piece that a Great "P" does.  Hope someone takes him in.

I agree that to know a Great Pyrenees is to love Great Pyrenees. 
People who know the breed, say that Great Pyrenees do not obey, they cooperate.  They are very independent and work out for themselves, if they will respond to commands. 
 
I would not recommend Agility for Great Pyrenees for both temperament and physical weight and joints issues.
 
Unfortunately, people who are used to the eager to please, easy to train dog breeds will be endlessly frustrated by the very independent Great Pyrenees. 
 
Then in the best case scenario, the dog will be sent to a Pyrenees  rescue.  In the worst case, the dog will end up at a kill shelter,  or banished to the backyard to bark endlessly until animal control handles the situation.

I'm not even into GPs and I can tell the pup is a purebred. Google GP puppy images and you can easily tell.

As far as agility, this is a very credible agility instructor. I highly doubt she would do anything to stress the dog's joints and bones. Bigger breeds growth plates don't close until 18-24 months so it's not like he can be force-exercised or do agility until about 2 years. Contact training as pups is totally fine and acceptable. GP doing agility is not as uncommon as you think...just surf around online and YouTube this lady has experience and knowledge raising newfies, it's not like she's a stranger to the giant dog world and how to care for them responsibly. Just check this web page out and look at the first couple of photos of the adopter of this GP puppy with her Newfoundland doing agility. Look at all the titles behind that dog's name. She knows what she is doing.

And for the record, this puppy will not step one paw in a shelter. He has a backup home lined up AND I have already spoken with the GP rescue and they will take him if the homes don't work out.
