Foster a Pyr
We are in need of short-term experienced Pyr fosters.

Great Pyrenees foster

We are looking for experienced Pyr people to foster dogs coming into our care on a short-term basis. It would be anywhere from one week to three weeks depending on the needs of the dog. You would work with our trainer to get him ready for adoption.

Know that the knowledge that we have on these dogs when they come in is what the surrenderer tells us. We can only go by that and trust it.

When they go into foster, contrary to what the surrenderer has told us, there may be issues such as resource guarding, dog reactivity, doesn't walk well on a leash, etc. We need fosters who are willing to take on the challenge and work with our trainer on these issues.

Our trainer assesses the dogs coming into our care the best she can. If she feels they can go right into an adoptive home, they do since the fewer transitions for a dog, the better. We have a list of screened adopters waiting for dogs. The dog goes to the home we feel is the most suited to the dog and family.

If you do want to adopt, please do not apply to foster. We allow a month transition time, sometimes more depending on the dog, for people wanting to adopt.
