Adoption Pending. You can see more of these beautiful dogs by clicking on Rescue Dogs. Alex (Alexander the Great) is about 3 years old and weighs 125 lbs. He does well with other dogs, cats and people of all ages. However, he does need to be fed separately because he is food protective with other dogs. He is very gentle and just wants to snuggle with anyone he meets. He was initially surrendered because his family moved and didn't take him with them, and now his new family is going through a divorce. Alex is housebroken and crate trained, but does not need to be crated when you are gone. He is a lover of a boy eager to be petted and loves to jump up and give hugs. Alex will be placed as inside pet with outside privileges to a secure above ground fenced yard. Pyrs do not do well with wireless fencing. We recommend obedience training for all newly adopted pyrs, to help you create a special bond with you and your new friend.

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.
