Hi! My name is Jack, which I know is a pretty ordinary name but I am here to tell you that I am an “EXTRA-ordinary” pup! First of all, I LOVE people. I am a happy, friendly guy who thinks sleeping in the bedroom with a person is the best thing ever! I approach everyone with a wagging tail and a clear expectation of receiving a lot of pets in return. People are the absolute best. Secondly, I love to play with other dogs, male or female, makes no difference to me. Having a buddy to hang out with and to play with is great. Thirdly, I am great with cats, too. I stay away from them, they stay away from me, and we are all good :) My foster mom says I have great manners with everyone. I am completely housebroken, I can sit on command and I am pretty good on a leash. And let’s talk about how handsome I am...at a mere eight months, I have to admit, I am cute. But just think of how gorgeous I will be when I am fully grown? What is not to love about me? I am EXTRA-ordinary! So if you are looking for an EXTRA-ordinary older puppy, then I am the guy for you!

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.
