The GPCPS is dedicated to the advancement and protection of the
interest of purebred Great Pyrenees and to doing everything possible
to bring their natural qualities to perfection.
We accomplish this
by urging all members and breeders to accept
the standard of the breed as approved by the American Kennel
Club as the only standard of excellence by which Great Pyrenees
shall be judged. All members vow to support and promote the
Code of Ethics.
The GPCPS believes that one mark of a good breeder is their
commitment to making certain every animal they bring into the world
has a loving family, and a place to call home. Unfortunately,
not all Pyrenees can be traced back to their breeders and find themselves
orphaned, or abandoned, and in shelters.
Thanks to the dedication of our
rescue program and its volunteers, these animals have a second
chance at finding a "forever home".
The GPCPS also holds sanctioned and licensed
specialty shows and trials under the rules of the American
Kennel Club. Members encourage and promote sportsmanlike competition
- not only in such events, but in all club activities.
If you would like to find out more about this wonderful breed, we
invite you to explore our web site and follow some of the links
we've provided. You need not own a Great Pyrenees to join our
ranks - you simply need to love the breed, and share in our
dedication to its protection.
