Wow, what a beauty! This little girl was listed as a stray and was picked up from Animal Control in rural Alabama. Trinka has a sunny disposition to match her smiling face. She gets along great with kids, other dogs large and small, and cats. Trinka is about 8-10 months old, so be prepared for typical puppy behavior, steeling rugs, chewing household items, running away with the shower curtain in her mouth... she is a JOY to foster despite her antics, she even makes the old dogs want to join in on the fun. On her first day home, I had to run errands so I left Trinka in the bathroom as I was planning on doing proper introductions with the other dogs when I returned. I walked in the house to find her sleeping on my bed with the daschunds, her head resting on one of their backs. Trinka is learning basic commands and she has started potty training 101. So far, she has proven to be a quick learner. Check in with us for more information, puppies grow and change so fast, we are sure to have more updates on her quirks and silliness. Let the good times roll!

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.
