We have puppies at Appalachian Great Pyrenees Rescue! Two litters. One litter is from a pair of Pyrs - we have two of the little girls up north with our puppy foster parents and two boys and two girls here at the rescue. We believe one of the little girls with us is spoken for but the others are looking for forever homes.

The other litter belongs to Lola (a very, very sweet momma Pyr). We believe their daddies were lab and german shepherd...but we could be wrong. Eight pups - two boys and six girls. Lola will be ready for her new home later in July and the pups are ready now.

PLEASE...NO PHONE CALLS! We are very busy with the pups and some recent special needs Pyrs that we can't respond to all phone messages. We can, however, keep up with email and adoption applications. Please contact us using AGPR-NEWS@VERIZON.NET.

All our dogs require a securely fenced in yard. Our adoption application can be found on our website, www.agprescue.org.
All applications will be date and time stamped upon receipt and will be handled first come, first served. Thank you!

Check out the dog (and human) yoga class on July 8. Proceeds benefit AGPR. We'd love to have some of our Richmond area folks join us. Simon and I are going and should be amusing to watch!

100% of the proceeds from our summertime Doga (Doggie Yoga) workshops are going to charity! For June, July, and August, each session will benefit a different pet organization. It's only $15 to sign up online for each 8:00 am session, and then you can donate any additional amount the morning of the workshop. We're working for free and it's ALL going to charity!

June 10 - Companion Bridge

July 8 - Appalachian Great Pyrenees Rescue

August 5 - Giant Hearts Giant Dog Rescue, Inc.

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?
All Great Pyrenees require a fenced-in back yard. If you have questions about the breed or our adoption policies and procedures, please go to our website at www.agprescue.org.

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!
