Miss Kittie got her name because when she first came into the shelter she would only eat cat food. She was saved by the shelter manager, who took her home rather than euthanize her. When the manager had to move, she could not take Kittie with her. Ms Kittie is large for a female, about 95 lbs, and as tall as a male in the shoulders and she has a very long body - she is a big, solid girl! She is very loving and affectionate. She loves a crate simply for security, but loves to stretch out on the bed, too. Ms Kittie loves to go for walks and rides in the car. Pictures don't do her justice, since good pictures are hard to get because she is camera shy. Kittie is a sweet but shy girl, who warms up once she knows you - she loves to snuggle with her foster dad every morning before he gets up. She is still working on her shyness, but has made great improvements. She will need a patient and loving home where she is encouraged to expand her world. We believe she is a 'Pyrador' a great pyrenees/labrador retreiver mix and is about 4 years old. She has been in a foster home for two years - won't you give this beautiful, playful and gentle girl a forever home? Miss Kittie will be placed as an inside pet with outside privileges to a secure above ground fenced yard. Pyrs do not do well with wireless fencing. We recommend obedience training for all newly adopted pyrs, to help you create a special bond with you and your new friend, this would also give Miss Kittie more confidence, too.

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.
