Welcome Twinkle, a beautiful Great Pyrenees female. She is between 3 and 4 years old. Twinkle loves to play with toys and other dogs, she is a wonderful companion and always sits at my feet. She is not much of a barker, if the other dogs get going she will chime in, and some of our resident dogs have shown her how to bark at strangers who walk on the other side of the privacy fence. Other than that, she is a quiet dog who loves to be with her humans. When we first brought Twinkle home, she was very shy and submissive. She wouldn't even walk upright when we came around, she would crawl on her belly. Twinkle hid under the porch and growled at the other dogs. She started warming up to me first, then the kids and my husband. After 5 days of living with us, she was fully integrated into the pack, and even sleeps upstairs in our bedroom with the house dogs. She has free run of the house, she gets along with the 2 cats, the 2 adult pyrs, and all the puppies that come and go. She is very fond of the pups and does a great job mothering them. Twinkle is a beautiful girl who would be perfect as a companion dog or for a family, she has never growled at any humans including my very affectionate young kids and does not display any food agression with my dogs. Twinkle is housebroken and getting better on the leash. She likes to take walks and is friendly with everyone, if a stranger stops to pet her she rolls over, showing her belly in hopes of a belly rub. We adore Twinkle, and we all agree she is one of the best foster dogs we ever had.

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 so we know how they will interact with your family. Please consider adopting or fostering. Every dog who is fostered or adopted makes room for another Pyr coming out of a kill shelter. Prior to adoption, NGPR dogs are fostered for a minimum of two weeks (usually more), spayed or neutered and fully vetted. Dogs coming from out of area are certified with a USDA health certificate before going to their new homes. Our rescuers adhere to the highest placement standards and will take back any dog whose adoption does not succeed. Visit www.nationalpyr.org to learn more about us, our mission and our breed.
