Welcome Gertie, a 7 month old Great Pyrenees girl. She knows how to walk on a leash, will come when called, and knows the commands “sit” and “stay”. She is a puppy and is very playful. She has a lot of energy and would be better suited for playmates that are close to her size, these puppies like to roll around and we wouldn’t want a teacup breed getting caught in that mix. To date, she is not destructive around the house, at most she will shred up papers if left around, but has not engaged in furniture chewing. (yay!) Don’t temp fate, though, invest in rawhides and chew toys if you are getting a pyr puppy. She is great with kids (be careful with very small children as mine have been mowed down more than once by a playful pyr puppy). Gertie is looking for a home where mom and/or dad are willing to put the time and effort needed into training, care and love. She has all the makings for a great family dog, if you invest in Gertie, you will get much in return.

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.
