Welcome Baxter, a pyr/lab mix. Baxter is an owner surrender, never been in a shelter (lucky boy!) An interesting fact, Baxter is the full blooded brother of Max, who was recently adopted, so if you missed out on Max, you are in luck! Baxter just became available. Baxter spends plenty of time with children, he plays chase with them on their big wheels, and they all think Baxter is a fun little guy. Baxter is very much like a lab, tons of energy, full of life - loves to play with the big dogs in his foster home. He’s a big, smart pup and is doing well with his housetraining. He has the shorter (yet fluffy) coat of the lab, and the extra large size thanks to his pyr half. Baxter was born on 11/25/09 and is neutered and up to date on vaccinations. Puppies go fast, so if you are thinking about adopting Baxter, get an application in today!

About Us: National Great Pyrenees Rescue (NGPR) is not a shelter. 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. 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. If you call or e-mail you are reducing your chances of adopting as we direct our time and energy to first serving those who apply. For more information about our adoption process please visit our adoption information page. Want to help but can’t adopt now? You can make a tax-exempt donation by visiting our donation page. We have many Pyrs and Pyr mixes who need homes and not all of them are posted. You can see more of these beautiful dogs by clicking on Rescue Dogs.
