Kennel Closing

 Tune in every Saturday at 1 pm to our Facebook page to meet our featured dogs.

NGPR's Springfield Ohio kennel will be closing in September. Our lease was not renewed so all the dogs have to be out by the end of the month, but hopefully sooner. Steve Kalko (left) will continue to host the live weekly broadcasts featuring our adoptable dogs from remote locations. We're using the latest technology to make this possible. We look forward to seeing you and staying in touch through the live broadcasts every Saturday at 1 pm.

The adoption fee for dogs picked up at the kennel is $350. Approved adopters can meet the dogs, save the transport fees or put it towards a hotel and gas. If you can't drive, transport is available. All the dogs are spayed/neutered, vaccinated and tested for heartworm. Fill out the adoption application at or email us and let us know who you are interested in!

You can visit to see the pooch profiles for all our dogs, including those with a Springfield, Ohio location.  Here are the dogs who still need a foster or adoptive homes



Dodger is a a handsome one-year-old male who had been a livestock guardian at a farm. We are happy to say he is quickly learning how to be a good companion animal and we are now looking for a furever family for him. You can read more about Dodger here.





Ava is also a one-year-old Pyr, on the smaller side at about 65 lbs. She came from the same commercial breeder as Wendy and Ivy. She loves to spend time in the  yard playing with other dogs. She doesn’t have a pooch profile, but to learn more about her, you can write in her name on the adoption application. Here's a video of Sasha, Ava and Wendy.







Austin is an active, playful male of three. He's a fast learner and has already mastered his sit cue, and is pyrfecting his leash manners. Visit Austin's pooch profile to learn more about him.







Gracie is a super nice 4 1/2-year old who is in need of a home and a great family of her own. She's a real sweetie who really loves her people.  Visit Gracie's pooch profile to learn more about her.







Attila is a smart two-year-old male—very sweet, but he needs to learn some training and manners so will need a strong leader. He loves to jump up and hug you but we are working on that! He does pull hard on a leash and he is incredibly strong so someone familiar with the breed who can handle large dogs is a required. You can read his pooch profile to learn more about him.





Wendy is a one-year-old Pyr who is on the smaller side, about 70 lbs. She came from a hoarding situation in Iowa.  She doesn't have a pooch profile yet but if you can't resist her beautiful liquid eyes,  you can write in her name on the adoption application form.
