Missy is a 9 month old female Pyr pup who is full of affection, energy and playfulness. Right now she is long, tall and skinny at about 75 lbs, but with continued good nutrition she will likely fill out to be around 100 lbs. Once her coat fills in she will be a classic Pyr beauty! She is very people oriented, and will lay her head in your lap to get petted or lean against you to get her back scratched. Missy loves to play and run, she will even fetch (rare for a Pyr!), but given a choice she prefers to play with another dog. She is very smart and has quickly picked up basic obedience like walking on a leash, and has learned to sit. She is still working on lay down, stay and come. She is also taking well to crate training. Missy is great with other large dogs - she hasn't been tested yet with cats or small dogs, but she is a nice, friendly girl who likely gets along with everyone. She appears confident around strangers and loves children, she just needs continued training and playmates to burn off her puppy energy. Missy will make a great addition to the lucky family that adopts her!
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.
