Jack’s story is sad but, unfortunately, not that unique. He came from a small country town in TX that doesn’t spay or neuter, let their dogs run loose, and, when tired of them, dumps them off at their local animal shelter, if they are lucky. That was not the case for Jack.

A good Samaritan informed me that Jack and his brother, both around five months old, were on the run in town. Before we got a good plan to capture them, one was hit and killed by a car. Jack was caught and taken to the animal shelter, and the same Samaritan reached out to me to help Jack. That’s how Jack became my foster.

When Jack first arrived, he was scared to death and stayed at the very back of his kennel. I had to carry him outdoors to potty.

He came around quickly, and he is growing every day before my eyes, now weighing around 27 lbs.!! Jack loves playing with the big dogs. He is a quick learner and wants to please you - he walks nicely on a leash and knows to sit!!

He is going to be the most loving little boy for a great family. Jack will thrive in a home with a canine companion to show him the ropes and a family available to him for love and guidance.

PUPPIES ARE ONLY PLACED IN HOMES WITH YOUTHFUL, PLAYFUL RESIDENT DOGS WHO ARE AT LEAST 50 POUNDS.

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).
