Adoption Form

Dog adoption is a very serious decision, one that will change your life for many years to come. As you probably already know, Great Pyrenees Mountain Dogs are a rather unique breed with somewhat special needs. They are not necessarily suited to all homes or lifestyles. Make sure you do your research on this breed. You will find much information on this website.

As a part of our Great Pyr rescue program, we are careful to ensure that adopting families are well-informed about the breed. 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 now allow dogs to go to homes with invisible fencing or tie-outs. Pyrs do not always respect invisible fencing and tie-outs can lead to aggression since they cannot reach all areas of their territory. They must have secure-fencing of at least 5-feet.

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 personal contact with you.

Our dogs are fostered in various locations in Ontario and Quebec. Be prepared to make a longer than usual drive to meet the dog.

Adoption Process:

  1. Complete the form below to enable us to help you find the best Great Pyr for you.
  2. We review application and get in touch with you via phone or email to determine suitability.
  3. If it is determined you are as suitable family for a particular dog, and that you like the dog, we endeavor to arrange a home visit.
  4. If the home visit goes well, we ask you to meet the dog where it is being fostered with all family members with whom the dog will be living.
  5. If all goes well, you can take the dog home with you. You are given at least three weeks to ensure the dog is settling in well.

We know that this will be time well-invested. Thank you for helping us help you.

Please note, this online form requires you to provide a valid email address.
