Are you looking for a handsome, loving Pyr boy? Well look no further, Junior is your guy! Junior is a very playful and gentle boy and a typical, adorably stubborn and loveable Pyr. He listens well and loves any time he gets to spend with his humans. His Pyr personality will be sure to melt your heart. Junior knows basic commands, has fairly good house manners and is leash and crate trained. He is a huge love bug who loves to be brushed, playing with toys (and other dogs) and going on walks. Junior is great with other dogs, after proper introductions and absolutely loves to play with them. Junior does great with children who have proper doggy manners and is great meeting new people. He also does well with cats. Overall, Junior is a very good boy and the pyrfect Pyr package. His foster says he is laid-back and happy-go-lucky. If you’re looking for an active Pyr to join your family (without the hassle of puppy training), Junior would be a great fit, so apply for this sweet guy today!

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.
