Meet Cyril - an adorable, 2 year old Great Pyrenees that has a smile that could melt an iceberg! His foster mom describes Cyril as being “the sweetest dog under the sun”. One of the ways that Cyril demonstrates his affection is to put his front legs around your neck, almost as if he’s dancing with you! Who knows? Maybe Cyril is headed for “Dancing with the Stars" :) Cyril is a great communicator. He tilts his fluffy white head, as if to say “I’m ready; are you?” Cyril wants to be with his person, or persons, at all times, and will make some Houdini-like moves to get over fences to get to them, so a tall fence is a must for this super intelligent little guy! Cyril walks great on a leash, making friends with everyone that he meets - it doesn’t matter if his new friends are on 2 legs or 4. Although we don’t know yet for sure whether or not Cyril is housebroken, he keeps his run impeccably clean. When Cyril came into rescue he was quite thin, so he will need to put on about 15 lbs or so - he should weigh approximately 80 lbs when he reaches his ideal weight, on the smallish side for a Great Pyrenees. Cyril LOVES to be groomed - he doesn’t even mind nail trims! Does Cyril sound like the “Pyrfect” companion for you? Then please consider giving him a “furever” 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.
