Kaizen is an extra large big Beautiful Pyrenees boy who came to rescue from a crowded shelter. He is an amazing boy, with a laid back, easy going personality. Kaizen is a very gentle fellow. He is doing great in his foster home and gets along great with the two resident female dogs he lives with and is fine with all the males he meets. He is housetrained, and great indoors and out with the exception of a few occasional countertop Ninja mishaps! Kaizen seems to have had a neglectful past as he came to rescue very underweight and heartworm positive (he's currently being treated), but he does not hold that against anybody and likes everyone he meets. He does great meeting new dogs and people and does great even with strangers who love to come up to meet and pet him. His foster mom says “He loves children; He is fabulous on a leash, and loves to go for walks. Kaizen weighs about 110#, up from 84.5# when I began fostering him - I do not have cats so I am unsure about this. When he came into my home Kai was a bit shy and showed signs of some abuse in the past. But he has really come around and found his confidence. He is ready to find his forever home, and will make a gentle sweet companion”. So...if you are looking for a really big, truly gentle laid back companion, Kaizen is your boy!

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.
