Great Pyrenees Rescue Sophie Has Found Her Forever Home

Our beautiful Great Pyrenees Rescue Sophie has found her forever home. As sometimes happens with a Great Pyrenees Rescue, she was placed but it did not work out. However, she was placed again immediately.

Sophie is in a home that had 2 Pyrs in the past - one purchased and one rescued. Unfortunately, these dogs are no longer with us. But her adopting home was empty without a Pyr and the void needed to be filled. Sophie came to the rescue. Her new owner fell in love with her and she is fitting in very well in her new forever home.

And here is our most recent update on Sophie. Gorgeous Sophie was adopted by a loving woman who had just lost her two beloved pyrs after long, happy lives. Sophie was adopted and settled in with the cats and bird, but missed her pyr friends from her former life. So, Mom adopted her a friend – Rosie, the sweet little girl with vision problems. These beautiful girls are absolutely adored and are so happy to be together.

We are forever grateful for the loving adoptees with open hearts that accept these beautiful Great Pyr Rescue dogs. This is a very happy tale and here is Sophie's story as told by her foster Mom, Marianne.

Great Pyrenees Rescue Sophie Wants to Fill Your Home with Love

Sophie came to me on December 25th because her family lost their house for financial reasons. It was a heart-wrenching separation.

Sophie is a micro chipped, registered, 21 month old, spayed Pyr who has been a house dog. She loves people, children, small animals, and of course, to be petted and lots and lots of belly rubs. As soon as there is a pair of hands available, she is on her back to claim her due.

Sophie has discovered that she can run and explore and jump and play to her heart’s content. She particularly enjoys playing with the four 6 month olds who have adopted her as their own.

Sophie is a very sociable dog who has not yet met a person she doesn’t like. She barks very little, perhaps because she doesn’t have to since mine are past masters at warning off birds and airplanes and the train, imitating its whistle perfectly. She finds it very interesting that they do this and has even tried out her own version.

Her coat is still dull and matted and we are working on getting it brushed out but it is a long process since we don’t want to denude her as she has not yet completely acquired her winter coat and she loves playing in the snow.

She is a tall, slim girl, 29 inches at the shoulder weighing 95 pounds although she is putting on some weight with a raw diet.

Sophie is ready for a loving home where she can take care of some humans or just lie and watch them so they don’t get themselves into trouble. She will even lie on the floor at the foot of the bed to ensure they have a care-free sleep.

This is the easiest Pyr I have come across of all the rescue dogs I have met. She pulls a little on the leash because she is out of practice but she quickly settles into proper walking position. When you stop, she sits at your side. She knows basic obedience commands and comes when called although she needs a nudge to lie “down”. She is absolutely an angel and joy to be with!



Sophie is is a beautiful Great Pyrenees Rescue and we are so happy that she has found her forever home.
