Charlie was a true representative of the breed, and is the inspiration behind this section of our website, and our lives. If you want to honor the life of a pet you lost, just let us know. We will honor them with you. I'm the lucky one though, I have other Pyrs at home which makes the healing a little more bearable.
Julia in TX. 7-23-2023 This couple took this ailing, severely neglected Great Pyrenees to foster for Great Pyrenees Rescue Society, knowing she was terminally ill. That is a special gift in a human.
Scarlett and Maroon were a very special bonded pair. Scarlett was very timid and scared, and Maroon could silence the kennel with two barks. Maroon never left Scarlett's side, right up 'til the day she crossed over the bridge. Terry adopted them in February of 2017, that's when every day became the best day of their lives. Thank you Terry. Run free Scarlett and Maroon, I smile every time I think about you two together again.
Max in OH/TX,-2010/4-14-2023. Max was in Ohio, but his family moved to Texas in 2021. Max was definitely a high achiever, because his human sister made him want to be that way. She even taught him outdoor boundaries with no visible fence. He would wait for 35 seconds with a high value treat on the floor in front him, without his human in the room. Max was loyal to his family right up until the end when he went to sleep, and crossed over The Bridge on April 4, 2023. Run free Max, and take care of Baxter. Let your family know you're ok, they need that right now.
Koda Bear's death on January 5 2023 was unnecessary. A professional not only misdiagnosed the behavior, he olso blamed the wrong dog, then used a shock collar on a dog that didn't do anything wrong. Recap - Koda ultimately died for not having behavior issues.
Our hearts go to PYRescue.org in Colorado, especially Judy, Michael, and Nancy. They lost their Little Bear, aka Teddy Bear yesterday, December 1st, 2022. It was sudden and unexpected. Nancy heard two of their dogs making a commotion in the play area, and she went to investigate, the dogs were trying to revive Little Bear, but he was gone, and Nancy was the first one there. Run free Little Bear.
Samson was young and loved dearly by his mom. Cancer takes another young Pyr. Run free Samson, you are missed. Samson went to the Bridge early November, 2022
Kasey in MD crossed The Bridge 9-23-2022. From Kasey's family.
Kasey was ours for only a few short years. He was sent to our home to retire and protect our elderly malamute, Cooper. We loved him so much and he protected us with a fierce loyalty I have seen in no other dog. Kasey helped to raise and teach 3 other rescues who we also love dearly. He passed peacefully while eating peanut butter surrounded by his family. Kasey joins his brothers Shiloh, Cash, and Cooper at the storied bridge we all hope to find.
