Willie, one of 8 puppies in the “Country Star” litter is a true little boy who just wants to please! The Country Stars came to rescue as owner surrenders from a breeder who could not place them. They are being raised together with their foster's older Pyrs who they are very respectful of. Willie loves to play with humans and other dogs equally and truly enjoys a good nap after a big play! He is just a good, sweet boy who will loves hugs and kisses and is not shy about showering you with his love—especially when told he is a good boy! Willie and his siblings are learning housetraining and are being well-socialized with people. They will need a home with big dog experience and a secure fenced yard. Willie loves to follow his person around the yard giving that sweet look just to say “I love you and just know you want to play with me” :) Willie will need a home with another canine sibling and PYRents who have a lot of love to give a boy as sweet at Willie! If you are looking for a boy as sweet, loving and willing to please, Willie is your boy!

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.
