My Story

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

Who is this tall, spunky, masked pup? Monroe—the best young boy of all and is best described as a silly, goofy, fun kid! This handsome Pyr mix pup came to rescue from a shelter as a stray. Monroe loves to run and play; when he was first turned in the play yard he would throw his head up and just go barking and running like a kid just let out for recess! After a good rain he loves to find water puddles to slop around in-oh what fun! Monroe did great with grooming and even stood for his bath! He loves all creatures—big and small; but because of his size he would do best in a home with a large canine sibling who he can run, tumble, and play with. He is even good with cats! He loads well into a vehicle, is learning to walk nicely on a leash, and will crate. Monroe would love an active family to continue his training, take him on hikes, rides in the car, and a canine sister to play with! He will also require a secure fenced yard – at least 5 ft, after all he is a tall boy! To learn more about Monroe to find out if he is your PYRfect match, put in an adoption application 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.

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.
