My Story

Marshmallow is a stunning Pyr boy who is so thankful to be off the streets and in a warm home with consistent meals! He’s a medium-energy kind of guy who enjoys wrestling with his foster sister and doing zoomies. He’s housetrained and knows some basic commands, with surprisingly good recall...for a Pyr :) Marsh would love a low key family that has the time and patience to work on training and leash manners. He’s a little slow to warm up to new dogs and can be picky so he needs slow, proper introductions (he would also do fine as an only dog). He's great meeting people and enjoys being brushed and going on car rides. Treats are great, too, especially if they include fruit, veggies or marshmallows (he's not choosy :)  Marshmallow is  protective of his food since he was forced to fend for himself on the street so he should always be fed or given treats away from other animals. He likes kids, but older kids who will respect his boundaries would be best. He’s a sweet clown and a great snuggler who will quickly find a way into your heart. Marshmallow wants his furever home to have patient people who will take the time to work with him so he can really shine!

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.
