My Story

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

Lightning is a happy, playful, young Pyr girl who is looking for a furever family of her own to love. This pretty girl is on the slightly smaller size, but she more than makes up for it with her great pyrsonality! Having been found wandering the streets prior to coming into rescue, Lightning has excellent house manners and is learning to improve her leash manners. For the most part, Lightning is laid back but she is always up for a fun playtime with her foster siblings and/or to go for a walk/car ride with her favorite people. Despite her young age, Lightning takes her job as a guardian dog quite seriously when she is outdoors; she is not shy about letting potential intruders know that they are not welcome inside her territory. On the other hand, she is the most wonderful gentle giant when it comes to her two-legged foster siblings. Lightning is so full of life and has so much love to give, she will thrive in a moderately active home where her people have the time to include her as an important part of the family, and continue to guide her as she matures into the most loyal companion!

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.
