Suave, sophisticated gentleman Zak is new to rescue and ready to find his furever home! Zak is an adult owner surrender, but he hasn’t let that get him down and knows that his PYRfect family is just an application away. Zak is a super-sweet and chill boy who is great around other dogs, big and small, whether it be in the play yard or walking on a leash. He has good leash manners but being a strong boy will need continued training and bonding with his person for that occasional squirrel trying to distract him :) Zak has taken everything in stride and even enjoyed a spa day where he received the works...brush out, bath and pedicure. Car rides are fun too; especially when he gets to sneak up to the driver’s seat to set the navigation for the park or the nearest store to buy some liverwurst—his favorite treat! Zak, being a chill boy will never beg you to sign him up for agility class but will be more than willing to join you to go watch. This boy, with the occasional goofy face, would love a family with a secure fenced yard to relax on breezy days, an air-conditioned home to chill in on super-hot days and a family to share it with. If you are looking for a friend to take for lazy-day walks, join you on errands, or just hang out with, Zak could be your next best friend!

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.

About Us: National Great Pyrenees Rescue (NGPR) is not a shelter. We are a not-for-profit, tax-exempt coalition of Pyr rescuers and rescue groups. We save Pyrs and Pyr mixes across the country and place them in approved foster homes so we know how they will interact with your family. Please consider adopting or fostering. Every dog who is fostered or adopted makes room for another Pyr coming out of a kill shelter. Prior to adoption, NGPR dogs are fostered for a minimum of two weeks (usually more), spayed or neutered and fully vetted. Dogs coming from out of area are certified with a USDA health certificate before going to their new homes. Our rescuers adhere to the highest placement standards and will take back any dog whose adoption does not succeed. Visit www.nationalpyr.org to learn more about us, our mission and our breed.
