Hi - my name is Bodhi! I am a purebred Great Pyrenees and have AKC registration papers. I am looking for a new fur-ever home since the elderly couple who inherited me when their son could not take me with him were unable to keep me. They only had a 4’ picket fence and I was constantly jumping over and getting out, so I will need at least a 6 foot or higher fence. I am currently with a foster family in Northeast Ohio and have met some new Pyrs. I like to play and am enjoying my interaction with my new housemates. I try to please my foster parents by being well-mannered and behaving myself on the leash. I love going for walks, all that new territory to explore! I would do fine as the only Pyr getting all the attention, or sharing with others. I am looking forward to my new fur-ever home and going through obedience training so I can show off what I know and can do. My foster parents tell me I am a special boy and that when I get to my forever home that I will do just great. Are you my new lucky parents?

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.
