My Story

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

If you are looking for a Pyr companion with minimal grooming needs, Skylar may be the pyrfect girl for you! Skylar is a young Pyr/Abkash mix girl with a short, thick coat, and she firmly believes that her easy-to-care-for coat means you will have extra time to shower her with affection :)  Although Skylar may need some initial time and space to get used to her new environment, once she settles in she is quite the fun-loving and trusting girl. We will let you in on a secret...you may be able to gain her trust faster if you happen to have tasty treats (peanut butter is her favorite!) around the house. Like many of our rescues, Skylar is not a big fan of loud noises (e.g., thunderstorms). She has exceptional leash manners and is always up for a nice stroll in the quiet areas of the neighborhood. Peanut butter-flavored chews may also help alleviate her stress during thunderstorms. Skylar is such a sweet girl with so much love to give. She just wants you to be patient and help her settle into her furever home so she can be your best friend furever!

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.
