Duchess and Diesel

It all began with having to put down our Akita/Collie and looking for another dog that would have the temperament and attention getting looks. Found nationalpyr.org out of NY and an astounding number of beautiful soulful faces looking for a second chance.

Diesel was the last on our list of prospects only because he was around a food aggressive female and never been inside. We drove to Utica NY to pick up our newest family member having only ever seen this breed twice before. Diesel is by far the best ambassador for this breed, he is stunning in his appearance his eyes are almost human like, he is classed as an extra large pyr.

He was found in Georgia likely turned out by a farmer that sold his flock and just let the dogs take care of themselves, he was around 7 when we got him so his chances were slim to find a forever home. I am so glad that we took the chance on him he is a fabulous dog he is now 12 years old and we are hoping to get him through the summer.

We never had a lick of trouble with the kids which were 3 and 7 or the cats. We decided 3 years ago that he needed a playmate to keep him young so onto the site I go and find a lovely little 2 year girl named Duchess. She grabbed my attention but I was looking for a few others first... again she was the last on my list.

Definitely something to be said the best for last. She is very shy and timid but she has a lovely nature and wouldn't hurt a flea unless of course they come near her family. We live quite rurally coyotes and wolves are a huge problem here, nice to know that the dogs can take care of themselves.

I will forever rescue this breed of dog and most likely will never have a different breed. I only wish that it was easier to rescue them in Canada then to have to go to the states all the time for them. This breed does not get its just desserts. I have yet to have these dogs meet someone and have that person not love them when they leave.

I am totally smitten with the breed.
