Meet the Springfield Dogs
Tune in every Saturday at 1 pm to our Facebook page to meet our featured Springfield dog.
What better way to choose your new friend than to go meet the dogs in person? Most of our dogs are in foster homes but ten are housed in a kennel facility. Our kennel in Springfield, OH is half a day's drive from Detroit and Chicago, 6-7 hours from the Washington D.C. metro area and a little further from metro New York, but it's all doable in a day's drive. The adoption fee for dogs picked up at the kennel is $300, so approved adopters can meet the dogs, save the $175 transport fee 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 www.nationalpyr.org/adoption-form and let us know who you are interested in! Everyone at the kennel is very friendly and helpful. Volunteers do the dog walking, feeding, watering, cleanup, leash training and help with socializing the dogs. Our volunteers (l-r) Isabella, Steve, Connie and Kaira will make your day visiting the kennel educational and worth the trip.
Here are a few of the dogs currently at the kennel looking for their furever homes.
Christine is the kennel diva. She's beautiful and at only one year old, she knows it. She walks great on a leash and loves being admired by her fans. Visit Christine's pooch profile to learn more about her.
Willie only has one eye but that doesn't slow him down. He's a fun guy who is about two years old and weighs 90 lbs. He loves playing with other dogs and has lots of energy to share. More info about Willie can be found on his pooch profile.
Silly Angie, sticking your tongue out at us. Angie's not quite two and has a lot of living to do. Life is interesting and exciting for her; she's playful and wants to check everything out but when things quiet down, she's happy to head back into her crate for some nap time. Angie's on the small side at 75 lbs but she's a growing girl. Learn more about Angie by visiting her pooch profile.
Buddy's a young guy, about two years old. He's on the smaller side for a male Pyr and weighs around 80 lbs. Buddy is great on a leash, and enjoys going on daily walks. Buddy is a “gentle” attention seeker, preferring to lay his head in your lap to receive pats and he even gives kisses, not always common with this breed! Read more about Buddy by going to his pooch profile.
Lovely eight-year old Lacey is making progress. She's a good-sized Pyr girl who weighs about 100 lbs. She's learning life can be good and filled with treats and kind pats. Lacey's come along way since she first came into rescue in August and needs a loving family to help her progress further. Read more about Lacey by visiting her pooch profile.
