This loving girl is Dolly, and she is looking for a family who is committed to nurturing her bestest personalities as she matures into the most pyrfect companion. Dolly gets along well with her canine housemates and is respectful of her feline siblings; she is also an excellent playmate for calmer respectful kids. Dolly may be a smaller size Pyr mix, but she has a 'big dog' pyrsonality who is protective of her people and not shy about being "talkative" to express herself :) Dolly is doing great in her foster home - she loves toys and doesn't destroy them, she submissive with the cranky dog, and she comes when called! Once Dolly gets to know you at her pace, this sweet girl will melt in your arms and snuggle with you until the end of time! If you are willing to devote the time and patience to help polish her skills, Dolly is more than eager to show you how intelligent she is and she is hoping that her furever people will recognize her desire to be challenged; she welcomes any daily activity like running, hiking, obedience games (Dolly would make a great jogging buddy). Dolly is a pup who thrives with consistent pawsitive reinforcement training, adequate physical and mental enrichment, and of course, a generous amount of love and affection. She would prefer a quieter household where she can have the space to build up her confidence. Dolly has all the pawtential to be the bestest pup - will you be the one who helps patiently guide her along the way?

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.
