My Story

Are you looking to welcome an active and happy furever furry friend into your pack? Young Bosco may be the pyrfect pal for you! This young Pyr mix will quickly win you over with his adorable antics. Bosco loves the outdoors, especially when there is a large, safe fenced space for him to run like the wind and play with his foster siblings. Bosco loves to play with doggy friends of similar size, both male and female. While he enjoys the outdoors, he is especially fond of the perks of chilling inside with his people. He will 'down' and 'sit' for a treat and is very good on leash skills and with his house manners. Bosco loves people and will remember those he’s met before. He also loves being brushed and petted and going for car rides. He is not a fan of baths or loud trains. Bosco loves to eat and will wait patiently for you to share some of your food with him :) He will always be happy to see you come home, whether gone for 5 minutes or 5 hours! He’ll give you a good laugh hopping on all fours like a bunny :) Bosco’s pyrfect home would have a big yard with a secure fence, another dog pal to run and play with, and an active family. He’s a big, fluffy, lovable, happy guy who’s hopeful he will be the pyrfect match for your fun-loving family so apply for Bosco today!

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.
