Sampson is a gorgeous young Pyr boy with a flawless temperament and a kind, gentle nature. He is very loving to everyone he meets and adores other dogs. Sampson has the most loveable face and his foster parents can’t say enough good things about how wonderful he is! This handsome fella thinks everyone he meets is great, and he just wants to be your new best friend. His favorite thing to do is to sit with his big ole head on your lap or roll over for belly rubs. He loves playing out in the yard with his Pyr foster sister, then taking long naps beside her. Sampson was formerly a farm dog - a livestock guardian, but he absolutely loves being an indoor boy with his people and dog pals. He is housetrained. He lost his leg in a farm accident, but he gets around beautifully with 3 legs and it does not seem to bother him a bit. Poor Sampson was turned into a high kill shelter when he was hungry and decided to eat a chicken on his former farm. He didn’t stand much of a chance to make it out of the crowded Animal Control he was dumped off at. Luck was with Sampson and it seemed like a bit of a miracle when our rescue received an new application from a kind family offering to foster a Pyr. They happened to live in the same town as this crowded Animal Control so it seemed like fate when they offered to pick him up and take him home. We can’t thank our foster families enough - they are truly lifesavers!! They just love this boy- and you will, too. Please consider making Sampson a part of your family. He deserves the very best home. Aside from missing his leg, he is in excellent health and just a happy boy to be around. He really seems to appreciate every bit of kindness shown to him.

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.
