We hope you enjoy our web site. Please return to it again and again as new Pyrs are posted for adoption.


Is this Breed for You? 

 


Pyrs are wanderers--require sturdy 6' fencing that they cannot dig under or go over to contain them. 


Pyrs are not an off-leash breed--must be on a leash when out of their secure yard. 


Pyrs are territorial--do not always get along with same sex dogs. 


Pyrs are nocturnal and guard by barking--must be brought inside at night so as not to irritate neighbors. 


Pyrs leave white hair everywhere year round--car, couch, refrig, flooring, your clothes. 


Pyrs should be obedience trained to fully enjoy them.  They are super intelligent and easily bored--no training session over 15 minutes of active commands.


Pyrs are a large working breed who do not thrive in apartments or condos, they can become bored and destructive without sufficient outdoor exercise in a securely fenced area.


NO OUT OF STATE ADOPTIONS.  

NO EXCEPTIONS.

About Spot....


Spot is a lovely and loving 6 year old spayed female.
 She came from Lake Isabella when her owner turned her into the shelter there. 

Spot walks well on a leash, rides well in the car and will cuddle as long as you like.
  She is housebroken and really needs a forever home. 

Spot has a beautiful, huge, but easy to care for coat.
Spot has a fondness for food so would appreciate it if she could eat alone.

Spot is crate trained and gets on well with
other dogs, but no chickens.

 For those of you who are not familiar with the story of Luke and his Pyrs, Hudson & Indiana, they have been walking from Vancouver to San Diego to bring awareness to canine cancer and raise money for cancer research.  This dreaded disease cost Luke his faithful Pyrs, Malcolm, and then Murphy, and encouraged him to walk to gain support to conquer this disease.   

​This is not Luke's first walk.  You may have seen him on Animal Planet walking from Austin to Boston in 2008.  Along the way he met up with many other dog lovers who share his concerns about cancer, made donations to his foundation, and walked with him.  His foundation, "Puppy Up" formerly "2 Million Dogs", is a 501(c)(3) dedicated to cancer research in canines and its relationship to cancer in humans.

We are very honored to have two of these three pioneers at our Pyr-In this year, and we hope you and your Pyrs and other pets will join us with open hearts and generous donations to Luke's foundation.  You can go on-line to read more about their journey and to make a donation.  And you can follow their walk on Facebook and Twitter.  

Our Pyr-In will be held on October 26, 2014
12 noon to 4 PM
Brookside Park, Pasadena, CA sections E & F

See you there!!!!!
