This pretty, laid-back, gal is Crissy. Crissy came into rescue after her beloved owner passed away, and she is more than ready to find her next furever family to love and cherish for the rest of her life! This gentle girl is the quintessential Pyr with all the typical pyrsonalities that we love about the breed...gentle, playful, sleeps belly up, eats lying down, pyr paw when you stop petting, nose butts when she wants attention, gives nose kisses. Crissy know her basic cues but like all Pyrs can sometimes be stubborn :) This girl plays well with dogs and cats of all sizes - she is quite the calm but playful gal that everyone wants to befriend. Like many of our rescue Pyrs, Crissy can be a tad shy when meeting people for the first time, but once she gets to know you, you are her best friend - for life! Given her age, Crissy has some arthritis in her hind legs, which will benefit greatly with supplements, pain medications when necessary, and regular exercise and/or physical therapy. Otherwise, she is happy to go for short walks and play with her friends in a safe environment. Crissy is looking for a furever family where her pyrents can be home alot so she can be pampered at all times. This gentle girl truly has all the best qualities we want from our Pyrs, and seriously, how can you resist those eyes?

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.
