My Story

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

Smart, silly, and sweet Sam is a friendly, loyal, purebred Pyrenees boy who loves to please his people and romp with his friends. He loves to play with his foster sisters and older kids, and he is an excellent foot warmer when he snuggles up on your feet :) Sam is very smart and learns quickly. He loves treats and new people who give them to him! Tall and slim at just 95 lbs, he's gained some needed weight. This love bug enjoys exploring on long walks and is good on a leash. Sam is crate trained, and loves his chew toys. Still a bit of a youngster, Sam needs lots of mental stimulation and would do well with an active family in a home with another large female dog to keep him busy, but needs a home with no cats or male dogs. This handsome boy would love a family who can help him continue to thrive and enjoy his amazing pyrsonality!

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.
