Tank was a lost baby & unclaimed, he ended up in a high kill, nasty, large city shelter where he was ill when rescued. Nursed back to health by rescue foster, he is in excellent health, and a very big, sweet, grateful baby boy. He's been through a lot in the past few weeks, is a little bashful in new situations, but responds very quickly with a kind word, a hug, and a snuggle. He will be an extra large boy when grown, so we prefer an experienced big dog forever home. No vices known, no aggression, no excessive barking or digging, non alpha, no behavior issues, very social, sweet natured, perfect little big guy. Gets along well with both male/female dogs & cats of all ages, breeds. He weighs 78.2 lbs today, at age 6 months.

Thanks. About Us: National Great Pyrenees Rescue (NGPR) is not a shelter. 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.
