If you are looking for an independent girl to join your pack, Izzy may be the pyrfect girl for you! In her previous life, Izzy has been left outdoors in sun and rain, regardless of the weather, and she always had to fend for herself, sometimes even having to scavenge for food. Since coming into rescue, Izzy is slowly learning that a home provides not only a place of shelter, but also food, love and affection. Despite having been neglected most of her life, Izzy is not hesitant to approach people and is more than happy to show her affection. You can easily win her over with a good head scratch and nice belly rub :) Given her history, Izzy would prefer to have a large, fenced-in backyard where she can safely patrol and guard the property. Izzy acts more like a young dog - she has lots of energy and loves playing with the other dogs. This sweet girl will need some help settling into a new routine in her new home, but she is quite food motivated so she will easily pick up new tricks :) Will you open your home and show Izzy the love and affection that she so deserves?

Our goal is to assess every application on its own merits. Key considerations are: 1) the experience of the applicant with large breed dogs 2) children in the household or regularly visiting the household are ready for a large-breed dog who is a guardian by nature and 3) the sex of other dogs currently residing in the household to avoid same-sex aggression issues. For puppies under six months old, the applicant’s ability to socialize the puppy with older dogs is a priority.

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
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.
