Teddy is just the sweetest and most adorable young Pyrenees boy you could ever hope to meet! He is such a happy-go-lucky fellow who loves people and gets along great with the other dogs at his foster home. He always seems to greet you with a wagging tail and a smile on his face. He has a spring in his step and he is ready for his next big adventure which is a home of his own! He is doing great in his foster home and would love a canine buddy to pal around with in his new home. He is playful with the other dogs, but does like to chase kitties. Teddy is excellent on a leash, will sit nicely for treats and he is a happy outgoing boy. He is currently 78 pounds but needs to gain quite a bit of weight. Teddy is just a year and a half old and came to rescue after his owner realized that keeping him on a chain in the yard was not an ideal life for him. He seems to be afraid of enclosed spaces after being tied up for so long, but has maintained a great spirit and a love of everyone he meets. Teddy seems like the type of guy who will fit in great with any type of family. He is one of the nicest young boys we have in rescue - a family will be very lucky to adopt Teddy!

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.
