SALT LAKE CITY — The popular Pyrenees pups that have taken over Utah news are in new homes and in great hands, but the search for their mother is still on.
According to a Facebook update on the Weber County Sherrif’s Office Search and Rescue page, the mother had been spotted “alive and well” as of Dec. 10.
Weber County Search and Rescue have been working alongside Great Pyrenees Rescue Montana to locate the mother, but their efforts to safely catch her have been ineffective.
Another Facebook status update by Shauna Thompson of Great Pyrenees Rescue Montana, says searchers located the mother alongside two other “at-risk” male Pyrenees. They also seemed to be abandoned and displaced.
“We are aware of her general location and rescue groups have attempted to capture the three, but with no luck. We are not giving up and will continue our efforts to rescue them and get them safely off the mountain,” wrote Thompson.
This story started back on Dec. 2 when Kat Perry and Corey Holt spotted a Pyrenees mother alongside her three puppies in Monte Cristo. Weber County Search and Rescue went up to retrieve the mother and her pups but were only able to successfully retrieve the puppies.
Since then, the puppies have been cared for by Kat Perry and are now all adopted and in new homes. Updates on the search for their mother will be posted on the Weber County Search and Rescue Facebook page as warranted.
