Donut—sweet, fluffy, and everyone’s favorite breakfast treat...we mean favorite little boy! This pup is as yummy as his namesake, but much better! Donut’s favorite thing in the whole world is to play, and play, and play some more with his brother! He loves the big dogs and is described as full of life and love! Donut is super smart too and learning lots in his foster home like housetraining, crate training (where he sleeps all night), and leash walking. When not playing and learning to go for walks, he enjoys people (even little people) and cuddles :) He grew up around cats in his first foster home, too. Donut will grow up to be a big boy so will do best in a home with a big yard to continue to play and run with a secure fence at least 5 ft tall. He will need another big dog to share his yard, play time and to learn from. His family should love all things sweet, fluffy and Pyrenees :) To learn more about this sweet boy, put in an application—you won’t be sorry!

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.
