Dog adoption is a very serious decision, one that will change your life for many years to come. This breed is not necessarily suited to all homes or lifestyles. If you do not like a barking dog, this is not the dog for you. They were bred to bark in order to deter predators. To use bark collars or any other cruel means to stop their barking is not fair to the dog. You are taking away who they are.
Make sure you do your research on this breed. You will find much information on this website. Also, make sure you are financially able to care for a dog. They require a species-appropriate diet–raw diet– which will keep them healthy.
The dogs we get in are, for the most part, mixes. Some are Pyrs, Maremmas, Akbash or Kuvasz or mixes. As a part of our big white fluffy program, we are careful to ensure that adopting families are well-informed about the Pyr. The other big whites are similar but please do your research on those breeds, as well. Our club and this site are dedicated to providing you with as much accurate information as we can obtain through our research and our own personal experience with the breed.
Note that we do not allow dogs to go to homes with shock fencing or tie-outs. Do not apply if you have either.
Pyrs do not always respect invisible fencing, and can suffer trauma if they get shocked, and tie-outs can lead to aggression since they cannot reach all areas of their territory, and fear if they get shocked. You must have secure-fencing of a minimum 5-feet on all four sides. Depending on the dog, an additional foot may be required. And, whether you have 500 acres or a small yard, a pre-requisite is always to have a securely fenced area for the dog.
In addition, we do everything within reason to ensure that you are provided with a dog that suits your environment, and needs, and that your family is a suitable fit for that dog. We do this through collecting information, and through contact with you.
We do our best to ensure the dog is fit for adoption. Be prepared to make a longer than usual drive to meet the dog.
