Mandie in NJ

Great Pyrenees

 
Large  |  Female

Beacon, NY

 

Meet Mandie, an incredibly sweet and enduring Pyr who deserves her happily-ever-after at long last. Mandie has incurred her share of heartache and abuse, and came into rescue weary of humans and unable to engage, with habits like staring into corners, refusing food, and running away from contact. Despite all this trauma, Mandie has blossomed in her loving foster home, proving her resilience and pure heart. With her foster family and animal siblings’ guidance, Mandie has learned to trust the human touch, eat without fear, and sprawl out around the house like a dog without worries. She now acts like one of the pack and will even let you know when she wants to be pet, though she still doesn’t crave affection as much as her fellow Pyrs. Beyond adjusting well to life as a cherished and beloved house pet, Mandie has also learned many new skills. As her foster mom proudly explains, “She is kennel trained, housebroken, does not get up on furniture for any reason, is not destructive of anything, and does not bark very often.” Although Mandie loves all dogs and is cat neutral, her foster mommy thinks she would do best in a home where she is the only dog, as she needs an environment where she is totally at ease and can focus on her continued growth. In her foster’s words, “She is very timid and submissive and doesn't do things like chew bones or play with toys in deference to the other dogs that are present. I think she will come out of her shell even more if given the opportunity.”

We are certain that if you welcome Mandie into your home and heart, the gratitude,purpose, and joy you receive in return will be a cherished, life-affirming gift! Mandie’s foster mom would adopt her in a heartbeat if it weren’t for having other dogs, as she is “totally in love with her.” Let this be your indication that you, too, will fall forever in love with darling Mandie if you welcome her into your life!

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.
