Adoption Monday: Mackie, Great Pyrenees, Beacon, NY

Mackie came to National Great Pyrenees Rescue (NGPR) the Sunday after Veteran’s Day, so they decided that he needed a veteran’s name.

Mackie is named after Cpl Mackie, the first US Marine to receive the Medal of Honor.

Little did they know how fitting the name would end up being! 

Mackie is a 2-3 yrs old Pyrenees that is housebroken, well behaved, calm and super sweet! 

He gets along well with the two resident male dogs. Mackie loves the kids and enjoys laying outside so he can keep a watchful eye on them. The garbage can and food on the counter seems to be non issues with him.

He also shares snacks with the other dogs with no aggression. 

Mackie is super skinny right now but should fill out to be around 75-80 lbs. He was just neutered, so please excuse his sad look in the pictures. Given some time and love he will embody the motto of the Marine Corps and be “Always Faithful”!

Mackie has been neutered, dewormed, negative for heartworm, up-to-date on vaccinations and currently on flea, tick and heartworm preventative. He travels with a Interstate Health Certificate required by the USDA confirming that all the above criteria have been met.

National Great Pyrenees Rescue, Inc. is an all-volunteer rescue organization established to facilitate the placement of unwanted, displaced and abandoned Great Pyrenees dogs into safe, caring companion or working homes.

Establishment of a national rescue organization opens up many new possibilities for adopters and rescuers. If everyone who wants a Pyrenees or a Pyrenees puppy takes a rescue dog, regardless of geographic location, we can seriously reduce the number of dogs who are abandoned and destroyed.
