Great Pyrenees Rescue Resources Utah Montana

Our mission is to help the innocent sweet pups that don't have a voice. Many of the dogs come in sick, emaciated and covered in matts, we are here to provide funding for the vet bills and grooming. We also fund the feeding of the pups while they are in foster care and boarding. Educating the public on the treatment of the livestock guardian dogs is something we take very seriously. We are here to fight for their rights and do everything we can to get them covered under animal cruelty laws. They don't have a voice so you will never stop hearing ours!

Meet Bear

Adorable baby Bear! This sweet boy came in with his brother Moose. Strays we pulled from the shelter. Bear is good with everyone and everything! He's working on house training and has about got that down! He also is working on basic obedience and manners.  Bear is crate trained and very treat motivated so is eager to learn with incentives! He's had 2 sets of shots and will need his 3rd set with his new family or before he goes. Bear is being fostered in Utah.
