If you are looking for a mellow boy to be your furever do-everything-together buddy, Drizzy may be the pyrfect boy for you! Drizzy is a guy with many names, mostly because he has such an easy-going pyrsonality that you cannot help but give him a zillion nicknames...and he loves ALL of them. Drizzy is a calm, gentle boy whose life motto is to "Keep Calm and Pyr On" :) He enjoys playing with his foster siblings, though when they do not feel like playing, Drizzy is content with finding his own entertainment, or better yet, snoozing on a pile of cushions. With Fall just around the corner, Drizzy enjoys his daily outdoor adventures, and he especially likes to take things slow so he can savor every scent that he comes across. After all, why shouldn't we take the time to enjoy all the lovely things in this world? Despite his size, Drizzy firmly believes that he is, and can be, a lap dog. If your lap happens to be already occupied, Drizzy will settle for lots of chin scratches and belly rubs, then will eventually persuade you to let him into your lap. This sweet boy has so much love to give; we are pawsitive that his furever people will be so very lucky to call this boy their furever buddy!

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.
