My Story

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

This “little” girl’s PYRsonality is really coming to the front—she has won the hearts of her foster parents with her daily antics and love of life! Heidi loves other dogs and humans of all ages and sizes. She ignores the resident cat unless he smacks her in the face for no apparent reason :) Heidi is housetrained, letting her people know she needs to go out with a whine, and she sleeps thru the night in her crate. Heidi wants to make it known she will need a home who believes in the finer things in life and has even asked her foster mom to order her an eye mask and Egyptian cotton sheets :) Speaking of beauty, this young lady enjoys having her hair brushed and her paws, nails, ears, and teeth cleaned. She truly enjoys her mani/pedi but does not tip well! Heidi loves water and thinks it is ok to climb into the shower with her foster mom and has been found sleeping in the bathtub. Heidi explores with her mouth, and true to the Pyr breed, she’s a talker. She talks to her people, her toys, her empty food dish, the neighbors, herself, and she will even tell the freezer door to give her an ice cube! Heidi is a beautiful, confident girl who will be a great adventure buddy on leash walks going exploring. Heidi will require a home with a secure fenced yard and either a male canine companion or children to play with. She would love parents who are home more than not. If you are looking for a Pyrenees girl who is larger than life put in an application to learn more about this special girl!

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.
