Welcome Bootsy! Bootsy was picked up from Animal Control in Georgia. She was a stray, and was extremely shy around people. We have been working with Bootsy to build trust and teach manners. She is VERY gentle, and prefers the company of children. She is wonderful off leash and stays close by her handler. When she first arrived in our care, we had a hard time getting her to do 'her business' outside, but once we figured out that she prefers to be unleashed for this activity, we have been doing great. Bootsy never goes very far, so we don't leash her in the dog yard anymore. She is very quiet, we have heard her whimper to go outside, but never a full on bark. She is sweet, and very lovable. She loves other friendly dogs, is a bit afraid of agressive dogs. She is all white, probably a mix, she has a shorter coat than full pyrs. She is perfect for a family, she trusts children and gravitates to them when they are around. She is playful with friendly dogs big and small, and gets along with other animals as well. She needs a gentle hand and an open heart, she will make a splendid companion.

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.
