Baxter is from a rural KY shelter and is a friendly, loving big boy about 4-5 years old. A good samaritan boarded Baxter at a boarding kennel for a week before he came into rescue, and had him groomed, too. He is a big gentle giant, who likes being where you are and getting petted. He gets along well with other dogs, is fine with cats, and would be fine with older children. Baxter will be placed as an inside pet with outside privileges to a secure above ground 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, and so you have a well behaved canine.

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.
