Are you tired of hearing the same Pyr promises – white, fluffy, generally awesome – only to find that you still haven’t found the right Pyr for you? Are you ready for the right dog for your home and family? Well, ladies and gents, I am happy to introduce Bernie the Pyr for Adoption 2016!
Bernie is the best of boys! No seriously, he’s great! Just ask anyone who knows him! Bernie has white fur with golden patches. He is tall and lanky with pretty light brown eyes. And, he is super kissable!
Bernie has the right qualifications for the job. He is good natured, sweet, and easy. He is okay with thunder and other loud noises. He rides well in the car, walks nicely on a leash, and he quickly learns manners. He believes in home protection, but he is not a fan of short fences - he will easily climb that, so you may need a wall! ...or at least a tall fence :) He was definitely not part of the great cat chasing scandal. In fact, his record shows he is great with cats, other dogs, and kids. Bernie will be the perfect addition to any family!
*Bernie for Adoption 2017 is endorsed by Pyrs and Pyr lovers all over the country* woof

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.
