GOOD NEWS: Jackson was adopted yesterday. He is seen here relaxing in his new home. His new mom had narrowed it down to three or four Pyrs and Jackson sealed the deal when he gave her a bunch of kisses. That boy sure knew how to work it! Congratulations, Jackson! You be a good boy!!!

Look who's getting ready for his big TV debut...AGPR's MAGNESS! We had to practice sitting in front of the cameras first...such fun? Then Mike Goldberg showed Magness off to the cameras and we only needed one take!
Thank goodness - Magness behaved so very, very well once the cameras were rolling.
Richmond area friends - tune in this Sunday (2/5) to CBS 6 for the Paws for Pets segment which will be aired between 6 and 7 A.M. (he's worth getting up to watch).
Thank you Channel 6 and Henrico Humane Society for the opportunity!
P.S. Magness will be signing autographs at the kennels

If you are looking for a long, lean, pretty lady, I'm your girl. My name is Artica and I'm looking for love. I like long walks in the woods, laying down on a blanket in the shade of a tree and snuggling...oh, and lots of hugs and kisses. I'm a confident girl and know what I want out of life. All I ask is that you let me eat my meals in peace and then let me out in my fenced in backyard to run and play. I am treat motivated and know basic obedience. Am I the girl you are looking for?

My name is Banjo and I am deaf. When I came to AGPR in 2015, my ears and face were a complete mess due to neglect. After many visits to the ear specialist, it was determined that my inner ears were not configured correctly. Unless I had surgery, I would be battling painful infections all my life. The ear issues are now resolved. I'm happy not to have pain anymore.
I turn five this month - I'm very mature. If you have a nice tree in the backyard with some shade, I'm content to lay under that tree, take naps and just watch the birds go by. I'm pretty low maintenance.
Honestly, I'm not too fond of having a male canine friend, but I may do ok with a mature female. We'd have to do a "meet and greet" first. I'd prefer no kids since I can't hear them. I'd worry about them sneaking up on me and startling me. It would be so wonderful if I could find some nice people and a nice home to relax in. I enjoy being loved and taking walks and sitting for treats. I don't ask for much!

HI Richmond-ish area friends. Please keep your eyes open for a young Pyr on the run. See the owner's post below:
Lost in Ruther Glen/Lake Caroline area.....Great Pyrenees male approximately 100 lbs. Just brought him home yesterday, last night we took him for a walk and collar came loose. He took off towards Lake Caroline. Very shy, and has had at least three names, we were calling him Bobo. I don't have a photo of him, but he's very thin. {Previous phone number was incorrect...see correct numbers below}. Thanks. He's 8 months old and white and very furry.
Previous phone number was incorrect. Please call the owner at one of these numbers if you see the missing Pyr:
(540) 621-5710 or (804) 301-3439.
Please share...thanks for your help!

My name is Merlin and I'm a young boy (about two years old) with an easy-going attitude. There's not a lot known about my past. My volunteer friends will tell you that I am strong and could use a few pointers on how to walk a little better. I just get excited about all the sights and smells around me!
I have a girl friend I like to play in the yard with but sometimes she's a bit bossy. So if there's a girl dog at your house, I'd like to meet her first and do a chemistry check.

Many thanks to Nylabone for their holiday donation! They made many Pyrs very, very happy for Christmas. Jake was also so surprised that he had a tough time deciding which of the many wonderful Nylabones to select as his own.
Thank you from all of us humans AND Pyrs at Appalachian Great Pyrenees Rescue! We appreciate your generosity and kindness.

Hi, my name is Amber. I'm eight months old and very shy around people. My four sisters and I came to AGPR in September. We were quite the pack of unruly girls when we came in, but we slowly but surely learned some manners. My four other sisters have been adopted and I need to find a family who will give me lots of love and patience as I get comfortable with being with people. Last month I had the chance to spend a long weekend with a lovely family with a male dog. There's nothing better than having a canine buddy! I was hoping to be in a loving home for Christmas, just like my sisters, but it didn't happen. Will you be my forever family?
