Are you ready for Dale? Prepare yourself, this boy’s eyes will melt your heart! There’s just one thing...his foster mom says his big, beautiful brown eyes still look sad from a rough start in life. He’s looking for a family that will make his eyes smile again. He’s not looking for just any family. Dale’s family must understand that it’s a whole new world for him. He needs time to warm up to new people and strangers, so patience and understanding is a must for this boy. Once he does warm up to you though, Dale is the sweetest most loving guy there is! He would prefer to be the sole recipient of your love and not have to share with any other dogs, as he can be protective of his humans and food. Dale is true to his Pyrenees and Anatolian breed mix - a loyal protector of his family and territory. He is continuing to work on his house manners and with continued training, Dale will perfect them. Dale is skeptical of new adults because of how they have treated him in the past, but he seems much more comfortable around children. Proper supervision around child and dog is always required but Dale seems to be very happy, calm and at ease around the little ones. With a proper introduction, Dale does fine with cats. Dale is a very easy-going guy who is happy to entertain himself (and you) with his dorky antics playing with his toys. Dale’s perfect home is a quiet, relaxing environment where he can feel safe. He will reward your patience in helping him overcome his fears with endless love and affection. If you think you are the Pyrfect family for Dale, apply today!

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.
