Hi, I'm Polar and I am a magical creature! I am a young Pyr boy with a thick white coat, large brown eyes, and a perfectly kissable nose. I am so handsome, it must be magic. At around 130 pounds, I am a large fellow, but I have big bones. In fact, my goal is to be easily confused for a polar bear! I am well on my way to reaching my goal. After all, I am a BIG boy! Part of my magic is to have a heart as big as I am. I have love enough for a large family, a neighborhood and a whole city. I want to bring my love of life and of others wherever I go. I love to run and play with toys or other dogs outside and act like a huge energetic goofball but when I go inside my foster home, I magically become a calm gentleman that even cats like. I also just love being brushed. I am learning the joys of leash walking, and I am getting better by the day. I am a sweet boy looking for a nice family, so get ready to take me home!

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.
