Hi, I'm Piper. I was adopted on June 21!

Not ready to adopt?
Piper is available to Sponsor!
Piper is a big and bouncy 5-month-old Great Pyrenees puppy that will likely weigh 100 pounds when full-grown. She was bottle fed in foster care after being rescued from a neglectful situation. This is an extra-large breed that requires a large fenced yard with room to run (no electric fences). Piper will be a medium energy dog and she was bred to be a guardian, so will bark to alert you to strangers. Raised in a family situation, Piper prefers the comforts of home to life on a farm or ranch. She’s a very loving and affectionate pup that will do best with a family without cats, chickens or other small pets. She loves to play with other large dogs, and she’d love to have a furry friend in her new home. (When eating meals she needs a space of her own away from other dogs.) Piper is good with dog-savvy kids that are 7 or older.
This breed is not for everyone, and we are specifically looking for an adopter with previous Great Pyrenees experience. They are very sweet dogs but can also be stubborn, independent and challenging to train. They cannot be let off leash in open spaces. Piper is currently in foster care with 3 adult Great Pyrenees, and her foster mom has a wealth of information and advice to share about this breed. Meet and greets can be arranged once an online application is approved.
Please note: Due to COVID-19, preference is given to residents of Monterey County and Santa Cruz County.
