ISABELLA (April 17, 2002)
Is a 10 yr old female who has been rescued for a second time, through no fault of her own. The last family searched out NEPR because they could not keep her but wanted to ensure a forever home for her retirement years. She is a sweet snuggle-bug of a pyr. Within a few days of coming to her foster home, she has already claimed "her" couch and, although a bit shy, she is slowly getting back her "voice". She has one small feline companion so far, and shortly will be introduced to the canine contingent. Having proven a bit shy with other dogs, we are looking forward to assisting her in becoming close friends with her new younger Pyr brother "D'Artagnan and older German Shepherd sister "Nikki". "Bella" is housebroken, walks on a leash and enjoys her time in the yard. She especially enjoys digging and rolling around in the dirt! Bella is a true family dog who especially enjoys her feline friend and children of all ages, she is a joy to have around.
Isabella is such a wonderful girl and is doing terrific for a senior lady! We are all so proud of her for making the most of her golden years with us. Bella will remain in her caring foster home for the remainder of her golden years. She is comfortable and happy there, so we feel it would be best.
If you would like to sponsor this terrific lady, please visit our website and complete our adoption application at http://nepyresq.org/page/adoption-application-36.html and be sure to include a note that you want to sponsor Isabella! Please also include any questions in the comments field of the application.

Rescue Group Info...
NorthEast Pyr Rescue (NEPR) is a non-profit corporation and an all-volunteer organization dedicated to providing compassionate, coordinated and comprehensive rescue services for Great Pyrenees dogs in our region, the North East portion of the United States.
We have Three Primary Goals:
1.) Rescue and Re-homing –We provide rescue care for Great Pyrenees dogs that are lost, abandoned, neglected or surrendered and place them in loving permanent homes. In many instances the dogs have lived with attentive and loving families but due to difficult circumstances, such as divorce or owner death, the Pyr needs to find a new home. In some cases dogs have been neglected or abandoned and have special care needs.
2.) Education – We teach people about the Great Pyrenees breed characteristics and convey information regarding proper dog selection and the importance of spaying and neutering. Members set up educational booths at county fairs, public events, Pet-Co, live stock events, and dog shows to disseminate information and answer questions. We distribute about 500 educational fliers and pamphlets each year a s well as speak to approximately 1,000 people.
3.) Consultation and Assistance – We work with owners who are experiencing behavioral problems with their Pyrs, connecting them with experienced breeders and owners who understand and help resolve their issues of concern. In most instances, with dedicated owners, we can provide easy solutions so the Pyr can remain in their home forever.
All of our available dogs are located in foster homes with our volunteers. These foster homes are spread across the Northeast. We will arrange for you to go meet any available dogs in their foster home.
NEPR interviews each applicant and also conducts a home visit to ensure this is the right breed for them. The Great Pyrenees is not a breed for everyone. Education about the breed is key for prospective owners to avoid mistakes in placement. If the placement isn't working, Northeast Pyr Rescue will take the dog back immediately under any circumstances. Adopting a dog locally has several advantages. A volunteer goes to the home of the prospective owners and makes suggestions for the dog's care. Prospective owners can also meet and "interview" dogs at conveniently located facilities or foster homes. Our canine behavioralists specialize in working with Pyrs and are always available for questions or support. We ask for a donation of $25 at the time of the home visit, and then a donation of $350 when a Great Pyrenees is adopted from our rescue.
