Love is patient.” Marnie needs love and patience as she is a shy girl. Eight-month-old Marnie needs a person in her life she can depend on. She needs someone that will set her up for success.

Pretty girl Marnie weighs around 60 lbs., was rescued from a Texas animal shelter. She has not had much socialization, but her foster family has seen significant strides since she first arrived.

Marnie demurely greets other dogs and warms up quickly to them. She gets along with her big foster canine siblings and loves people, old and young, tall or short; this puppy has no aggression. Even though Marnie has come around to her foster family, she still sometimes won’t make eye contact but will take all the pets and love you have to offer. She is feeling comfortable around her home and is food motivated but not food aggressive. She is afraid of many things outdoors as there are many things she doesn’t know about in this big world.

Marnie is house trained and will whine to go outside to potty. She sleeps in the laundry room and only barks if the other dogs are barking at someone or something; it’s short-lived barking. Marnie is not a fan of the car but quietly lays down. She has improved quite a bit on the leash; her family walks her on a leash around the barn to let her sniff the animals. She has not acted aggressively towards them or seen them as prey. She is great with kids and the livestock.

Marnie requires a resident canine companion to show her the ropes and help her settle into her new home. Older children would be fine if they are not loud and rowdy. Her foster family says, “She is a great dog; she just needs a family that can give her lots of love and patience!”


Our requirements for puppy adoptions are simple and necessary.

  1. Our puppies are not livestock guardians, they are family pets that live inside of the family home.
  2. Puppies must be placed in homes with a youthful, adult resident dog of similar size. This gives the puppy a mentor and a solid foundation for becoming part of the family.
  3. Puppies are only adopted to homes with someone at home at least part of the day. If no one is home for 6-8 hours at a time, please do not apply.
  4. Preference is always given to those with Great Pyrenees experience.
  5. Applicants must have secure, visible fencing and a socialization plan in place.
  6. The fastest way to be considered for a puppy is to fill out an application. Adoption is not first come, first served. GPRS and its fosters work diligently to find the right fit for each and every unique dog and puppy.
  7. Applicant’s personal pets must be current on vaccines & heartworm/flea prevention and be altered.

Adoption fee: $450 (Adoption fee includes spay or neuter, distemper/parvo shot, flea preventative, deworming, and health certificate for travel). Adopters located outside of Texas pay the cost of transport to an independent transport service ($225).

GPRS has proudly placed thousands of Great Pyrenees and GP mixes in the PNW for over a decade. Our volunteers have over 100 years combined experience fostering, screening, and placing this majestic breed into loving, forever homes. When adopting from us, you can rest assured that we provide life-long support and advice when it comes to your new family member. As always, our purpose is to find the best match for every unique dog that comes through our doors. Taking the time to find the right fit comes first and foremost at the Great Pyrenees Rescue Society. If you are interested in adopting, please take the time, and apply. You will see firsthand how much care, attention and love goes into the process, when you are guided a personal screener. This is why we have people come back again and again for their next family member! See all our dogs, fill out an application and discover why we are the BEST at placing the right dog in the right home!

ADOPTION, FOSTERING, AND DONATIONS are just some of the ways you can help a rescued dog. We have worked hard to cultivate a large network of volunteers to save this majestic breed. While monetary donations are always much appreciated, you can also help by donating your time as a GPRS foster or volunteer.
