My Story

Dugger, a Pyrenees mix, came into rescue with his 7 siblings known as the Ditch Litter. These babies were found abandoned in a ditch and taken straight to a foster home where they were showered with love and attention. Duggar loves to snuggle up to his big fur friends and doesn’t seem to care if they are ready for him or not :) This fellow is an explorer and adventurer, so anyone who is on the go won’t go wrong with a lad like Dougie! He is a leader, the first to do everything, including to bark and win over the big dogs. He also loves to kayak and swim where he became a master boater in his first foster home. To keep Dugger safe and allow him to continue his adventures he will need a 5 ft fence and a canine playmate. If you are active and looking for a sidekick, this boy just may be your PYRfect fit!

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.
