Zowie owners got a divorce and dropped her off at a shelter. Zowie is a 7 year old, mid-sized Pyr at 74.5 pounds and is about 24” at the shoulder, but packed in her medium sized body is a sweet and playful personality. Zowie is very friendly with people. She does not appear to be out to attack other dogs, but prefers to not be around them. She loves to be brushed and her favorite game is when you tickle her feet. She is a great cuddler and will either sleep on her dog bed or in bed with you. Zowie is a very pretty girl with a few tan spots on her and gorgeous grey-shaded ears. Zowie does not show any interest in mixing with other dogs, She can be territorial with other dogs. For these reasons, we think Zowie needs to be an only dog. I don’t think she will be one to bark or lunge at other dogs on a walk, as long as her new owner sets rules and follows thru with reprimands. Zowie responds well to a sharp word when she acts up and always seems to look for forgiveness for her bad behavior. She will need an experienced strong pack leader.

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.
