Hi! My name is Augustus but everyone calls me Gus. Augustus is way too high brow of a name for me. I am just a simple puppy with simple desires such as people, toys and other dogs. I ignore cats. Since the cats I have met do not want to play with me, they are not worth my time. I have to admit that cats seem pretty happy with that attitude. One of my foster siblings loves to play with me and we have a blast together; another is a senior dog who puts me in my place. I can respect that so I leave him alone. I really love toys: bones, stuffies and even the nuts that fall from the trees in the yard. Yep, I love them all! I am inquisitive and confident, just like a puppy should be. I am housebroken and my foster mom says I am very lazy and can sleep 13 hours straight at night. She is teaching me manners since I love people so much, I tend to jump up on them in my enthusiasm. She is also teaching me how to “sit”. Well duh, I know how to sit, but apparently it is a big deal to sit “on command”. Humans can be weird but you just gotta love them. I really would like to have other dogs in my new home so I can have a playmate or two. Basically, I am just an all-round great puppy just waiting for a new great 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.
