Say hello to Freckles, an adorable mixed Pyrenees puppy looking for a family to call her own! This charming girl is about 12 weeks old, has a very devoted nature and loves to follow her person around throughout the day. Freckles is super smart and has learned to come, sit and walk like a big girl on her leash. When it comes to play time, Freckles forgets how little she is and gets right in there with the big dogs, wrestling, chasing toys, tugging, and having a great time! Freckles is an equal opportunity player and she is often found playing with her feline siblings. When wrestling on the floor with the other dogs, Freckles is sometimes vocal making the cutest little sounds! Freckles takes her Pyr heritage seriously and has been known to protect her person from the big bad moon when it shines on the pond! When not at play Freckles can be found either lying at her person’s feet, in her crate, or on one of the dog beds with her foster sister. This girl is a cuddler too! Freckles especially loves laying on her back with her legs splayed out, head down, ears flapping. She then gives you the most endearing look begging for belly rubs which put her immediately into a dreamy sleep. Freckles loves children, dogs and cats; therefore would be happy in a family with either or all, as long as she receives plenty of love, cuddles and exercise. She is just a laid back, smart and happy puppy with tons of love to give you and your family!

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.
