Welcome Chance! Chance is a very friendly dog who loves to play. He is about 1 years old and has a lot of puppy left in him. He appears to be a purebred dog, though on the smaller size for a pyr. He is currently about 65 lbs and will continue to grow for at least another year. He loves adults and children, though caution should be taken in homes with small children, as he tends to jump when excited; we wouldnt want the smaller kids to get hurt. Chance is very good natured and loves to give hugs and kisses. We are working with Chance on basic manners, including not jumping on people and sharing with other dogs; he likes to play with other dogs but doesn't like to share the affections of his master. Chance loves to play with older children, and spent time in a foster home with a teenage boy who reported that he and Chance had a great time wrestling. Chance would be a wonderful only dog, or with initial supervision, would make a wonderful companion dog to a similar sized dog where he has been properly introduced. If you are interested in a dog who needs training but is already up to speed on leaning, kissing and love, then Chance is your 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.
