Athena: goddess of reason, intelligent activity, arts and literature, wisdom; fierce and brave in battle. These are descriptions that fit this beautiful puppy girl to a “T”. Athena is described by her foster mom as being outgoing, social, fearless and active. This beautiful girl is thought to be Pyrenees mixed with lab or German Shepherd. She is pure white and has the classic eyeliner and white lashes of a Pyr. Athena currently lives with all sorts of 4 legged friends and loves them all. She weighs approx 30 lbs at 14 weeks, and is expected to be about 90 lbs. when fully grown. Athena loves everybody she meets and is looking for her furever home!

About Us: National Great Pyrenees Rescue (NGPR) is not a shelter. We are a not-for-profit, tax-exempt coalition of Pyr rescuers and rescue groups. We save Pyrs and Pyr mixes across the country and place them in approved foster homes so we know how they will interact with your family. Please consider adopting or fostering. Every dog who is fostered or adopted makes room for another Pyr coming out of a kill shelter. Prior to adoption, NGPR dogs are fostered for a minimum of two weeks (usually more), spayed or neutered and fully vetted. Dogs coming from out of area are certified with a USDA health certificate before going to their new homes. Our rescuers adhere to the highest placement standards and will take back any dog whose adoption does not succeed. Visit www.nationalpyr.org to learn more about us, our mission and our breed.
More Information: Questions? The fastest way to learn more about a dog is to fill out the application form below. If you call or e-mail you are reducing your chances of adopting this animal as we direct our time and energy to first serving those who apply. For more information about our adoption process please visit our adoption information page.
