Shady Girl and Grizzly - Two Big Mellow
Great Pyrenees That Need New Homes
Susan Daffron talks to Jody Chiquoine from North East Pyr Rescue (NEPR) about two Great Pyrenees named Shady Girl and Grizzly that are available for adoption. Shady Girl is a beautiful spayed female purebred Pyr. Jody says that they are thinking of changing her name to Lady Bug because there is nothing "shady" about this sweetheart. She is only about 2 years old and seems to love everyone (kids, dogs, and even cats). Unfortunately, Shady Girl is a dog who has been affected by the economic downturn. To make ends meet, her previous owners had to get multiple jobs and didn't feel like they could spend enough time with Shady Girl because they were too busy working. So they brought Shady Girl to NEPR and asked them to find her a new home.
Grizzly is a male senior Pyr whose owners moved and couldn't take him with them. Both he and Shady Girl have absolutely no bad habits to speak of; they are just wonderful dogs who have had some bad luck. Now these dogs need new homes with a forever family. North East Pyr Rescue coordinates with many other Great Pyrenees rescue groups, but only adopts dogs in their local area, which includes New York, Massachusetts, Vermont, Connecticut, New Hampshire, Rhode Island and Maine. The group screens applicants carefully, does home checks, and makes sure that prospective adopters understand the needs of this particular breed. Because Great Pyrenees are a "giant" dog breed, it's important for prospective adopters to meet the dog first. Great Pyrenees really are big, after all. But so very beautiful and loving too!
