Luna is just about a Pyrfect Pyr, according to her foster mom. She is a senior sweetheart just looking for love and the kind of human who will see that the rest of her life will be one of snuggles, cuddles and companionship. She is so polite and well behaved that she stays off the furniture unless invited and is fine left alone in the house without being crated while her humans are away. This 9-year-old beauty is all white with the trademark double dew claws and is a big girl at 117 pounds. Unlike a typical Pyr, she isn’t interested in random barking although she will sound the alarm when necessary. Luna hasn’t told us her opinion of cats but would do best as an only dog so that she doesn’t have to share her human’s attention. Luna would really like to find a furever home with someone who spends ample time nearby so that she can be their shadow. Are you that person who has room in their heart and home for this special sweetie? Luna may be the new love of your life!
NGPR does not adopt dogs to homes with children under 6 years old.

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 to learn how they will interact with your family. Every dog who is fostered or adopted makes room for another Pyr coming out of a kill shelter. NGPR dogs are fostered for a minimum of two weeks or more, spayed or neutered and fully vetted before placement. NGPR will take back any dog who does not succeed in its new home. Many NGPR volunteers are members of the AKC breed club, adhere to their rescue guidelines for purebred Pyrs and apply these standards to the adoption of Pyr mixes as well. Visit www.nationalpyr.org to learn more about us, our mission and our breed.
