Marcie is a 2-3 year old lovely pyr girl. She was found with a broken leg and starving on the side of the road in rural KY last Nov. She went through two surgeries and successful rehabilitation therapy and is now ready to find her forever home. Throughout her ordeal she remained a loving and trusting companion, who now plays happily with the dogs at her foster home. Marcie has no special requirements. She loves to go for rides and long walks. She is house trained, crate trained. and adores people.She has a cute trick of sitting and putting both paws up and waving at 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.
