Our Great Pyrenees Rescue Conditions are presented here to assist you.
Great Pyrenees Club of Southern Ontario is dedicated to helping you help
Great Pyrs in need.
Sadly, we are unable to help all of the dogs that are presented to us, so before we proceed... there a few things you need to know.
We carefully screen all incoming dogs for socially acceptable behaviour and accept only those whom we feel we can place responsibly. Great Pyrs that bite, present a very high risk and absorb way more of our scarce resources than we can afford. So if a Pyr has a history of aggression and biting, we probably will not be able to help.
Here is additional information about aggressive, biting dogs.
Due to our limited resources, we can accept only purebred dogs, and are unable to accept mixes. You may be wondering why this is, but there is good reason. We know Great Pyrs and we know their temperament. They can be delightful and they can be difficult. But we know what to expect.
Mixes are another matter entirely. Even though it is part Pyr, we do not know what temperament to expect and that presents a big problem for us. As well it can result in absorbing more of our scarce resources than we can afford. So we can accept only purebred dogs.
Where does the club’s Great Pyrenees Rescue section operate? We take in dog rescues from only Ontario and Quebec, Canada. “Why Quebec?” you may be asking. Quebec does not have a Pyr Rescue group, and there are very few Humane Societies in Quebec. As a result there are a lot of local people involved in dog rescues on an ad hoc basis.
We can take their calls because we are a rescue group and have facilities to look after the dogs and place them. We are in contact with a Breeder in Quebec who receives a lot of the dogs and places them, or passes them on to us.
It is recommended by the
CKC and AKC that placements be made within the same general territory
and we abide by this. However, in extreme cases we take dogs from
outside the territory as we did with a rescue from Hurricane Katrina.
The U.S. was just swamped with dogs and could not handle them all, so we
helped where we could. We still take Great Pyr rescues from the U. S.
in some cases.
