Meet Andres (Andy)
Andy is a 3 year old handsome Italian hunk. Straight of a sheep farm in KY this boy was surrendered by farmer. They said he chases sheep. Hard to believe as he doesn’t move fast at all. Andy is super sweet and a wee bit shy.Please visit our website for more pictures of this dog and info on our adoption process and application which is located on the left column under "forms & applications" :
Before applying be sure you have thoroughly researched Great Pyrenees. They can be stubborn, prone to barking, overly protective and cannot be off leash. You WILL NOT train a pyr to boundaries.
Please be sure all family members are in agreement to adopting and your family is ready to bring dog home now.
Applicants must be at least 21 years old. We do not have blanket criteria regarding adoptions. Each applicant is considered based on many things including but not limited to breed experience, yard ( visible fence preferred) and other animals in home. We try to avoid dogs with same sex households as pyrs typically do not do well with the same sex.
A volunteer will be in touch to discuss your application and the dog to determine if it is a good match. Your vet and two references will be called. A virtual home visit done. Once approved a meet and greet at the farm will take place. If all are in agreement and the animal has received its NH health certificate an adoption contract will be signed and adoption fee paid. Adoption fees for dogs are $450. for adults over 12 months, $550 for puppies 12 months and younger. Fees for seniors, special needs or harder to place dogs will be determined by our Board of Directors. All dogs will be altered when adoption is finalized. This may involve young puppies be given until a certain age to be altered. All animals are up to date on age appropriate core vaccines, negative for parasites, heart worm and lyme tested if 6 months or older, microchipped and have a current health certificate. Proof of a basic obedience course completed is part of our adoption contract within six months.
Our descriptions are based on shelter evaluations, input from foster homes and interactions with our volunteers but are in no way a guarantee of temperment.
We show animals by appointment only. This is usually done meet outdoors so please dress accordingly.
Please email [email protected] with any questions or to arrange a meet and greet.
we prefer to match our pet to the best home rather than first come, first serve.
