My Story

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

If you enjoy breakfast, and even if you don’t you will LOVE the Egg Litter—8 Great Pyr puppies who found their way into rescue when their owner became sick and could no longer care for them. Yolk is the yummy center, and this boy is true to his name because he is not only handsome but an amazingly smart boy with lots of charm and personality! Yolk loves all the dogs in his foster home and is sure to greet you with a tail wag and a smile :) Yolk is going to be a tall boy and has a medium thick coat—what could be called wash and wear, especially with the self-cleaning Pyr hair! Yolk is always up for play in the yard or snuggles on the doggy bed with a puppy pal—oh and he loves snuggles with his human too! Yolk and his siblings are being raised with other dogs and socialized with people, including children. If you are looking for a boy to take for long walks and adventures, have another large breed dog, time, patience and understand the Pyr breed, Yolk would love to meet you. Put in an application today—you could be Yolk's (or one of his sibling's) furever home!

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.

Please complete the adoption application and visit to learn more about Pyrs and our adoption process. National Great Pyrenees Rescue (NGPR) is not a shelter. We are a non-profit, tax-exempt rescue who has been rescuing the breed for 15 years.  Visit to learn more about us, our mission and our breed.
