My Story

Adoption Pending. You can see more of these beautiful dogs by clicking on Rescue Dogs.

This super handsome young Pyr boy is Harper and he is a doll! This poor guy was found all alone wandering a cemetery in Tennessee. Like all of the other Pyrenees ending up at shelters here, nobody came for him. No collar, no tags, no microchip, nobody looking for him. So tired of seeing so many of these poor dogs and pups abandoned. Harper is such a sweetheart. He is a playful boy, and is good with other dogs. He's currently in boarding but we really want to get him into a home or foster home. Harper is gentle, sweet and smart and takes direction well. He is ok on car rides and learning to walk nicely on leash. He's a good boy in need of a good home! Harper does well in his kennel and sleeps through the night, and during the day, he gets to play outdoors with all of the other dogs. He's looking for a great adopter or foster to show him the ropes and teach him all that he needs to learn. He is such a great pup, despite his rough start in life. We are so happy this boy is safe now in rescue and ready to find a fantastic family of his own who will never abandon him again.

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.

We may consider fostering for some of our dogs who are in boarding. Please visit Fostering FAQfor an application and information about our fostering program.

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.
