My Story

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

This incredibly handsome boy is Moose! Moose is a wonderful Pyr boy who’s family fell on some tough times and as a result he needs to find a new loving home. Moose is housetrained and loves to go for walks. He’s medium to high energy and is pretty obedient...for a Pyr :) He knows sit, lay down and come. Moose loves to play with other dogs but needs proper, slow introductions as he can come on a bit strong. He is currently living with another dog and indoor cat who he leaves alone most of the time. Moose can be protective of his food and toys if left out. He’s a little timid when meeting new people and slow to warm up, especially inside his house. He seems to be much better out on walks and at his favorite store, Tractor Supply! Moose hasn’t had a lot of exposure to kids, so respectful older ones would probably be better. In addition to his walks, Moose loves to be brushed and towel dried. Car rides are his favorite, especially when they end at Tractor Supply :) Moose startles easily and is not a fan of loud noises, beeping, squeaking or loud construction vehicles. He is sure to entertain you with his silly antics like nuzzling his head into the couch. His ideal home would have a large yard, colder weather and an active, loving family to take him on lots of walks. Moose will need an adopter with Pyr experience and wants nothing more than to please his humans - he loves being told he’s a good boy! If you’re the loving, active family Moose is looking for, apply today to make this good boy very happy!

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.
