Snow is a 3-1/2 year-old purebred "Pocket Pyr" girl with a giant-size personality and non-stop smile who would love kids and another (male) dog to play with. This little beauty failed as a livestock guardian because she prefers a job as "snuggle bunny" with the kids and being with the family, so her owners surrendered her to rescue. Snow has a gentle, playful demeanor and seems to love everyone, kids, cats and other dogs, even the little ones (apparently, no one told her about some Pyrs being "aloof" LOL). She does require a 6-ft. fence, ever since she was left outside during a thunderstorm and tried to outrun the storm. Her pictures show how pleased she was after her bath and told how pretty she is! If you're looking for a pyr on the smaller side who is thrilled to be with you, whether walking nicely on leash or riding in the car, Snow's the girl for you!

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.
