Reston Pet of the Week: Gracie

Becky's Pet Care


Meet Gracie, our Pet of the Week who is in need of a new home.

Here is what the people at Appalachian Great Pyrenees Rescue say about this gentle giant:

Gracie is quite the snuggle bunny and she loves attention. She is a little shy at first; she puts her head down and rolls her big brown eyes up at you and warms your heart.

Gracie joined us early in September and was quite skinny and had a very bad haircut. She has gained some weight since coming in but needs to continue to fill out.

As her coat grows, her markings become more beautiful. Gracie loves walking and nuzzling your hand as you go … she wants to make sure you are still with her and loving her. She has a great disposition and looks forward to a loving home to spend the rest of her life.

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

Our adoption application is online.

Are you and Gracie a match? If so, let us know and our sponsor, Becky’s Pet Care, will send you $100 in Becky’s Bucks, as well as some treats.
