Adoption Form
*Please apply only if you are ready to adopt even if we have no dogs available. Chances are we do or there will be soon.*

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. 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 which will keep them healthy. They may also need vet care.

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 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.

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.

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.

Adoption Process:

  1. Complete the form below to enable us to help you find the most suited big white for you.
  2. We review your application, and get in touch with you via phone or email to determine suitability.
  3. If it is determined you are a suitable family for a particular dog, and that you are interested in that dog, we endeavour to arrange a home visit.
  4. If all goes well, you will go to meet the dog at the foster home.
  5. We ask you for the minimum adoption contribution of $400 before you receive the dog.
  6. You will be required to sign up for the online program Home School the Dog (short version of the full version Recallers) or Recallers. A copy of proof or registration for the program is to be emailed to us before the adoption is finalized.
  7. You are given three weeks to ensure the dog is settling in before we proceed with the adoption contract. If proof of the program has not been received, the dog will be returned to us.
  8. If it turns out the dog is not a good fit within three weeks, you will receive the $100 back. After the three weeks, the contribution is non-refundable. All adoption contributions go to medical costs for dogs coming into our rescue.

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