Reggie was turned into a rural Ky shelter for killing chickens. He was hours away from being euthanized when he was rescued. He was boarded for 10 days at a kennel before being flown by a generous volunteer pilot from KY to Indianapolis. We estimate Reggie to be about 12-14 months old. He is fine being crated too. Reggie is very cute, and friendly and has the markings on his face of a border collie, but the temperament of a great pyrenees. He gets along great with other dogs. He seems like he would be fine with children too. Reggie will be placed as an inside pet with outside privileges to a secure above ground fenced yard. Pyrs do not do well with wireless fencing. We recommend obedience training for all newly adopted pyrs, to help you create a special bond with you and your new friend.

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.
