My Story

Adoption Pending. You can see more of these beautiful dogs by clicking on Rescue Dogs.

Boone, the handsome Pyr with a heart full of love, is ready to move in—do you have room in your heart and home? Boone simply loves people and will return your affection with happy smiles, tail wags, and love! Boone’s favorite thing, other than getting brushed and loved on is to go for walks. When asked, “want to go for a walk”, he will wag his tail fervently and do a happy dance! Boone is the total package—great with people, ready to take a nap on a big blanket with you, a walk, a car ride, loves to be groomed, house broke, crate trained, good with cats, plays well with the girls and great on a leash! Boone would do well as an only dog; in a leash walk only home; with cats, and/or with a canine sister to play and hang with—he just wants your love! To be placed as an only dog, his family would need a person who is home more than not. Boone looks like a big teddy bear, but he is a Pyr and thus will need a family with large breed experience. Are you looking for a big, beautiful Pyr to be your new best friend who will sit for hours allowing you to rub your hands thru his white/golden coat, rubbing him all over and even allow you to rub his belly! Boone is waiting to meet you—put in your application today!​

NYS Registered Rescue # RR102

Our goal is to assess every application on its own merits. Key considerations are: 1) the experience of the applicant with large breed dogs 2) children in the household or regularly visiting the household are ready for a large-breed dog who is a guardian by nature and 3) the sex of other dogs currently residing in the household to avoid same-sex aggression issues. For puppies under six months old, the applicant’s ability to socialize the puppy with older dogs is a priority.

If you can't foster or adopt at this time, please consider helping our Neediest Cases or making a tax-exempt donation by visiting our Donate page.
