Are you looking for a running buddy? Hiking buddy? Adventure partner? Well look no further- Zeus is your guy! Zeus is a young bundle of fun! He’s happiest while being active with his human and furry friends. Zeus was very loved the first year of his life but is looking for a home better suited for getting his puppy energy out. He needs a large, fenced yard to run around and play. A tired Zeus is a good Zeus :) Like most Pyrs, Zeus can have selective hearing and can exhibit some resource guarding tendencies. He has work to do on his manners when greeting new humans and other dogs on a leash, but Zeus is highly food motivated and a delicious treat seems to help him remember his obedience commands very quickly. He is house broken, crate-trained and walks well on a leash (unless other dogs are nearby). Zeus plays well with canine pals after proper introductions and would benefit from a doggy sibling to play with in his yard! He is a very good boy - handsome, smart and a quick learner! If you’re the active family Zeus is looking for, 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.
