Icy in MA – Very Cuddly & Affectionate!

You know how people say we should not judge a book by its cover? Well, it applies here with our young boy, Icy. His cool name reflects his beautifully icy white coat that is incredibly soft, but his pyrsonality is anything but icy. In fact, he is cuddly and affectionate, and he loves to rub his head against you to be loved. Being a young boy, Icy is active and playful; not only does he love playing with other dogs, he is also a big fan of all sorts of toys. He would do well with another active dog to play with. Having spent most of his life outdoors prior to coming into rescue, Icy appears to prefer hanging out outside where all the fun happens. However, he is learning all about the perks of chilling indoors…with soft doggie beds, cool floors, and chew toys. This boy is curious and eager to learn, so if you are looking for an active companion to join in all your family adventures, Icy is the pyrfect boy for you! With his happy, curious, affectionate, and playful pyrsonality, we are pawsitive that Icy may be the exact companion you need in your life!

Nelson in AL – Smart, Loveable Goofball!

Meet Nelson! This young boy has all the Pyr qualities we know and love with a bit more energy. With a little more training, Nelson will make a great family dog – he is a young, active and independent boy who loves himself a bit of mischief 🙂 He is housebroken and walks pretty well on a leash. Nelson absolutely loves to get his energy out and will make a great running or jogging companion for his humans. Once he’s adjusted to his new environment, he sits on command, loves hugs and getting pets. He’s very smart, a quick learner and would benefit from an active, female canine sibling to show him the ropes of his new home. Nelson is good with female dogs but he can be selective with other males. Nelson has never met a stranger and is very friendly greeting people out on walks. He absolutely loves car rides and enjoys adventures to new places, like going with you to stores where pups are allowed. Because Nelson has lots of energy, he will need an active family to take him on lots of walks and provide a big fenced in yard to run around and play in. Nelson loves his toys and bones and can be a little protective of them at times but we haven’t seen anything serious. He enjoys being a thief and stealing things such as blankets and boxes of Milkbones 🙂 Nelson is a Pyr-lover’s Pyr and is looking for a family that has time to spend with him and who will appreciate a good Pyr paw! We'd like to see Nelson placed with another young to adult active female dog. This loveable, handsome, goofball will make the Pyrfect addition to an active home with a sense of humor and time to commit to helping him reach his full potential!

Lucius in TN – Perfect Companion!

Lucius is a very handsome Akbash, who found his way into rescue after his owner dropped him off at a shelter when he could no longer care for him. Akbash are guardians similar to Pyrenees and true to his breed, Lucius is a gentle soul–loyal, alert and intelligent. He has lived indoors and does great as an inside dog with outdoor privileges. He is well-mannered, house trained and doesn’t require crating—he will bark to let you know when he needs to go outside. Lucius is a very tall and very long boy, 3’9” tall, 4’0 long. Like all Akbash, he can jump, which is why he needs a tall, six-foot fence. Grooming is easy with the Akbash shorter coat so you can skip those expensive visits to the groomers. Lucius would love a female companion to play with. He hasn’t been tested with cats or small animals. He rides well in the car, listens attentively and walks well on lead.  Lucius is a very loving dog looking for the right furever home who will appreciate all his wonderful qualities as a guardian and a companion.

Destin in CT – As Sweet As Pie :)

Endearing Destin—is she your future furever friend, companion, and walking buddy? This smart girl is enjoying life with her foster family but wants nothing more than a family to call her own. Destin is a confident young lady who loves people, snuggling, and does not know a stranger. Did we mention she is smart too? She is crate trained, housetrained, walks great on a leash, has great recall, and knows how to ring bells to go outside. Comfort is her middle name, whether it be lazing on a zero-gravity chair, in a hole another dog dug, or napping on a pillow, blanket, or dog bed! She loves toys of all shapes, sizes, and textures and can be found throwing them around and exploring them on her own! This long-legged lady is affectionately called “Legs” by her foster family 🙂 Destin could easily be an only dog or live with a submissive male who will allow her to rule as she was born to do. The perfect family for Destin will have a secure fenced yard, enjoy long walks and be looking for a companion to help with yard chores, or just everyday activities. Is she your destiny? 🙂

Nancy in TN – Adores Attention & Affection!

This lovely Pyr girl is Nancy, who arrived to rescue as a diamond in the rough but is now looking and feeling so much better! Nancy is an adult Pyr and she loves being inside and is housetrained. She was neglected before but good meals, vet care and attention have made all the difference. Nancy is a real sweetheart who adores attention and affection. She walks nicely on leash and would love a home of her own and being a cherished member of the family. Nancy would do best as an only pet without cats, birds and other small animals or with an older mellow male dog as a companion.
