Meet Elinor! (Ellie for short) She is an incredibly sweet 6 month old Pyrenees mix pup who is looking for a great family to call her own! She is very affectionate, and absolutely loves to play, give kisses, and cuddle. She has a wonderful laid back personality and would make a great addition to any family! She is great with kids, dogs and cats. Her favorite things to do include wrestling the two big dogs in her current foster home, fetching toys, going for walks, and snuggling on the couch after a long day of playing. One of her foster sibs (who never cares about the other foster dogs), really loves to snuggle up and nap with her, she is that sweet. Ellie has beautiful markings and is on the smaller side (a Pocket Pyr)...she will probably only weigh about 60 pounds when fully grown. She rides very well in the car, is learning how to walk on a leash, and is totally house-trained. If you are looking for a super-sweet pup to add to your family, look no further!
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 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.
