Please note that we are not accepting any more applications at this time for Buddy.
The definition of a buddy is: a close friend, pal, someone who does an activity with you. This Buddy is a 2 year old purebred Great Pyrenees who very much needs a “buddy” of his own. Buddy was not well socialized, so he will need his new “furever” friend to help him learn to trust. Buddy is great on a leash, and enjoys going on daily walks. Buddy is a “gentle” attention seeker, preferring to lay his head in your lap to receive those much loved head pats, but he is also happy just chewing on his Busy Bone, antlers or knuckle bones. Buddy will even give kisses - not always common with this breed! Although Buddy gets along well with other dogs, he would thrive in a home where he wouldn’t have to share his person’s attention. Buddy likes to investigate his surroundings, but is not an “escape artist”, preferring to be with his person. Buddy is white with “wolf gray” markings and is on the smaller size for a male Pyr (around 80 lbs). Buddy has double dew claws and is housebroken. He can be placed either as an only dog, or with a female dog, and is fine with cats.
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.
