My Story

Fabulous Freddy, the Great Pyrenees is looking for a foster or a furever home. Freddy was brought into rescue as a stray and is currently in boarding. He has a beautiful white coat with black markings, and is just 80 pounds-- what we call a "Pocket Pyr". He loves to go exploring in the yard and on walks. While this smart boy has had no obedience training, he will sit for a treat...on occasion—isn’t that just like a Pyr :) As all good Pyrs do, Freddy will bark, but only at things that need to be barked at! Freddy is also a gentleman at grooming time, sitting to be brushed and to have his nails trimmed. He came in with ear infections, so will need a patient person who knows how to be careful to his sensitivity. Freddy does not appear to have been exposed to indoor living prior to coming to rescue; so he prefers to be outside but is becoming more comfortable inside every day. Freddy is not a player so would prefer to be an only dog or could be placed with a female who is not demanding of his attention. The ideal foster or furever home for Freddy would be one where he can soak up all the love and attention from his family and not have to share. He promises to take his Pyr responsibilities seriously, patrol the yard, and keep his home and family safe. Won’t you give Freddy a chance and apply to adopt or foster him and make him your Furever Freddy?

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.
