My Story

Our senior boy Buddy is looking for a very special person of his own to love and cherish in his golden years. Although we are unclear about Buddy's prior life, we know for certain that he loves, and we do mean LOVES, his people. A pyrfect home for Buddy would be one where he can spend 24/7 with his people, being adored and loved. Nonetheless, Buddy understands that people may have to work and/or run errands, so he is willing to settle for, say, a good 6-8 hours a day with his people on average :) This boy is always up for a walk in the neighborhood, especially when the weather is nice, though there are days he may have to take it slower to give his arthritic joints some rest. Perhaps due to unhappy incidents in the past, Buddy prefers that other animals mind their own business and keep out of his way. Given his age, Buddy prefers to be the only pet in the household, so he can always have the undivided attention of his people. If you can accommodate his preferences, this loving senior boy would be the most pyrfect companion for you. Under the right circumstances, we are pawsitive that Buddy will continue to shower you with all the love you didn't even know you were missing!

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.

About Us: National Great Pyrenees Rescue (NGPR) is not a shelter. 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 so we know how they will interact with your family. Please consider adopting or fostering. Every dog who is fostered or adopted makes room for another Pyr coming out of a kill shelter. Prior to adoption, NGPR dogs are fostered for a minimum of two weeks (usually more), spayed or neutered and fully vetted. Dogs coming from out of area are certified with a USDA health certificate before going to their new homes. Our rescuers adhere to the highest placement standards and will take back any dog whose adoption does not succeed. Visit www.nationalpyr.org to learn more about us, our mission and our breed.
