We are happy to report another successful dog adoption from our Great Pyrenees Rescue Team. Our little dwarf Margot has found her forever home.
Margot is now a companion of a male 12 month old Pyr dwarf as well as several other small dogs. She has apparently adapted to her new home very nicely, patrolling a large yard and sharing food with the others. She still does not like cats, but that is OK as there are no cats in her new home.
Margot considers her new job to be guardian of the other little dogs and has made them her charge.
Margot went from being a hyperactive, undisciplined dog, bouncing off chairs, couches and beds and refusing to be separated from her foster mom even for a short period of time. She also considered any other dog a threat that must be attacked and chased off. When she left her foster mom, she was quiet and happy, as well as a sociable companion.
Her new owners had researched dwarfs extensively and knew what they were getting with Margot, plus they already had a dwarf.
So it is a happy Great Pyrenees Rescue and happy ending all around. The Club extends a big “Thank you” to her Foster Mom for all of the dedication and good work done with Margot and to her new adoptive family for providing her a new forever home. Dog adoption really works for those who care.
This was Margot’s story
Margot is a 5 year old spayed Dwarf Pyr, who comes from a home with 7 children. She needs a home where there is no other dog or cat. She terrorises my cat and, although he won the very first altercation, he now hides when they are in the house together. When she comes in she immediately goes on a cat hunt, checking all the rooms. She also does not like my other dogs and attacks them “to protect me from them” as I understand it.
Margo is extremely affectionate and wants to be with you all the time, cuddling up to you when you are sitting and watching T.V. She has just this week started to lie or nap a distance from me, as long as she can see me. This has taken at least a month if not two. She is quieter and has taken up a routine, no longer pooping at my bedroom door but barking to go out. She also now comes up in the early morning to sleep at the foot of my bed on the floor, otherwise she sleeps on one of the stuffed chairs in the living room.
Margot is hearing impaired, but not deaf. It is difficult to judge just how much hearing she has because once in awhile when I shouted at her, she turned her head, so there may also be some Pyr selective hearing there. Margot will do well with a family or a retired person/couple who can spend a lot of time with her. She enjoys her walks but also wants attention. This little Great Pyrenees Rescue is twenty inches at the shoulder, about 40 pounds.

Will allowing a pyr puppy to sleep and lounge around indoors with non working dogs and humans “ruin” their work ethic?
