About Kyrii

We call her ‘Nanuq’ as she reminds us of a beautiful majestic polar bear. Kyrii is a loving, gentle giant who wants to be loved. Her dream is to have her very own ‘fur’ever family to love.

Kyrii loves people! She wants to spend all her time following any human she can find (small or tall) all over the house and yard. When she is new to an environment and your family, Kyrii is timid and may cower initially until she trusts you, quickly turning to requests for belly rubs and back scratches, then back to offering kisses to her humans in return. Once she is with a trusting family for a few days, she is not as nervous, and will start to greet strangers as they pass by on daily walks.

Due to her resource guarding (space and food) when other dogs are around her space inside, we do recommend that she is the only dog in the household at this time. Kyrii is more of a people-lover, but will still play with other dogs outside. She currently has a foster ‘sibling’ that she wrestles and plays with, but thrives when she is the centre of attention and can be your best friend!! She is non reactive on leash and does well with other dogs when there are no resources around.

Kyrii would prefer being with her humans all the time, but if put into a kennel during supper or for night-time she is calm and quiet until her humans come and get her. She currently lives with kids and does well with them. She is approximately 1 year old so still young herself. She came into AARCS’ care with her puppies who have since moved on to their own foster homes. She is completely house trained and has never had an accident in the house while being with us, her current foster family.

Kyrii is thought to be a Pyrenees cross: a very loyal, loving and patient breed who protects. Kyrii does also bark both inside and out when something catches her attention. Due to her size and breed, a rural community or larger yard will be an asset for her to run, play and bark – she would not be suited to condo or apartment living. Some breed understanding will be helpful for her future family to be successful with her!

Please consider meeting Kyrii. When you look into her light brown eyes, you will not be able to resist her “polar bear glare”!
