Learn About Pyrs

Great Pyrenees are wonderful dogs, and with a name like “Saving Pyrs In Need”, you know we’re bound to love the breed.  But these beautiful big white dogs are not the right choice for every dog-lover, so we hope you’ll take the time to learn about their traits so you can make an informed decision about whether to make one of our Gentle Giants part of your family.
