Gwenyth is a very affectionate Pyr who appears to have had multiple litters of pups and came to us from an AL shelter so thin that, as the shelter volunteer described her, 'Her hipbones looked and felt like door knobs'. She weighed 76 pounds when we got her two months ago is steadily putting on weight and weighs an even 100 pounds right now. Gwen is a bit bossy, in a maternal way, with our other dogs, cats and puppies, but as she has started feeling better and stronger she has started to play with them as well. She especially loves the smaller pets and they love her as well. She is snuggled up to a small terrier mix right now. She loves all people, school age through adult and would probably be wonderful with young children as well (she was at the vet's today and there was a bouncing off the wall four year old boy who didn't faze her one bit). She is a very mellow, laid back girl, who does like to patrol the back yard and delights us with occasional bursts of playful energy. Gwen would do well with any family, but probably would do best with strollers, rather than joggers or better yet riding in the car with them!

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.
