Rossi is an adorable 10 month old Border Collie/Pyr mix who was adopted along with his 5 siblings last April, but lost his home due to an unexpected move. Rossi is as smart as any Border Collie and as sweet as any Pyr. He is already housebroken and gets along with his fosters' cats, dogs of all sizes and is especially gentle and loving to the 7 week old puppies here. He is eager to please and friendly to everyone, although a bit shy due to his former home. He is blooming more every day now and will be a wonderful dog for a family or a home with other pets to keep him from being lonely. Rossi weighs about 70 pounds and is built more like a Pyr with the distinctive black and white coloring of a Border Collie. If you are looking for a young dog who is still a puppy, but ready to be your companion and housemate, please apply for this awesome boy!

We are a not-for-profit, tax-exempt coalition of Pyr rescuers and rescue groups. We save Pyrs and Pyr mixes across the country and place them in approved foster homes to learn how they will interact with your family. Every dog who is fostered or adopted makes room for another Pyr coming out of a kill shelter. NGPR dogs are fostered for a minimum of two weeks or more, spayed or neutered and fully vetted before placement. NGPR will take back any dog who does not succeed in its new home. Many NGPR volunteers are members of the AKC breed club, adhere to their rescue guidelines for purebred Pyrs and apply these standards to the adoption of Pyr mixes as well. Visit www.nationalpyr.org to learn more about us, our mission and our breed. More Information: Questions? The fastest way to learn more about a dog is to fill out the application form below.
