I am a 1.5-year-old, 80 lb. boy who used to be an outdoor dog. My owners are moving, and something called COVID means no dogs allowed on overseas flights. I’m so lucky I now have the best foster family that includes humans, six other Pyrs and even chickens and bunnies. I learn fast and have had NO accidents in the house since day one. I love my new indoor life! I can be a bit shy at times and don’t always enjoy taking medicine but my foster mom is teaching me to be patient and says I’m so smart! I am coming out of my shell more and more every day. I now play with my foster brother, a Pyr mix, and we have so much fun! I am great with all of the dogs in my foster home and I’ve met a couple of other dogs that came to visit as well. I think I would do best in a house with another young, big dog. I am great with my foster mom’s cats and kittens as well. I watch the chickens in the backyard and I’m fine with the bunnies too. I’ve never met young kids, but I LOVE teenagers. I have to tell you a secret I am super picky about food but I love human food. I used to be free fed but now I’m learning to eat twice a day with my pack. I’m learning so much in my new temporary home! I’ve even gotten used to being brushed! I walk very well on a leash and ride great in the car. I believe I will make a great companion for someone, I really want a new loving fur-ever home.

Obviously, my name is familiar but keep reading and I bet you recognize part of my story, too. Let’s start with the easy stuff: I’m 1.5-years-old, weigh 85 lbs. and am friendly just like the cartoon Simba. I didn’t run away from home, though; my parents are moving overseas, and I’m not allowed on the plane. Right, same as Hotaru. Which means I’m also an outside dog who wasn’t house or crate trained. On the plus side, I love being pet and get along well with other dogs. My humans say food and attention are my top priorities. They also say I’m clingy and am very easy-going, which is silly because I don’t go anywhere, other than on leash walks.  I know the words “calm down” mean don’t play so hard. Which is OK, cuddling is just as much fun. Unfortunately, those two words don’t help when the thunder starts. But hey, this is kinda cool, I can open certain types of doorknobs with mouth and paws!

You know, my name suits me. I’m a sweet, likable dog with just a couple of sticky personality traits easily managed with a dog-savvy owner. First, the simple stuff: I’m 1.5-years-old, only 65 lbs., and love being pet.  I’m good with young children, even the toddlers hanging on me or babies grabbing my coat. I have a lot of energy to use up on walks (good leash manners!) or running around the yard with people and other dogs. Like my littermates, I’m at GPRA because our parents are moving to a new country and we’re not allowed on the plane. I wasn’t house or crate trained either so thanks in advance for your patience teaching me some inside dog manners. Being the runt of my litter in an outside pack created some food guarding issues, which by the way, seems kind of human to me. Seriously, people refuse to share their food with me, but they still have friends and homes and families. Maybe I can be part of your family? Meet your friends? Play with their dogs? Please email info@greatpyratlanta.com, click “Contact Us” or choose “Apply to Adopt” below so we can try.

Do you enjoy traveling? Me, too! In fact, that’s why this 1.5-year-old, 100 lb boy is now a GPRA rescue looking for a new family. My buddy Bailey and I loved wandering and eventually, our family just gave us to the county shelter rather than paying another reclaim fee. I wish I could tell you more but I’m counting on a foster family to teach me about, well, me. Since most Pyrs are gentle, loving, protective, and snuggly, I’m hoping the odds are in my favor and I’m already that kind of dog. I just need the right person, or family, to help me stop roaming. Or to roam with me on the other end of a really secure leash!

Hello everyone, I am the exotic Cleopatra from a far away land. I am about 2.5 years old and. I love to give hugs when I meet new people and I am just a friendly girl all the time. I am good with cats but I do need to be the only dog in the house. Because of my size, I would do best in a home where there has been past pyr experience and with older children. I enjoy taking walks, loves riding in the car, and spending time with my humans. If you would like to learn more about me, please contact GPRA today at info@greatpyratlanta.com!

Hi My name is Cora.  I am a stunning young girl just over 1.5 years old who is looking for my forever home where I can remain safe and happy.  I am a very happy girl that is welcoming to other furry critters and excellent with children.  As perfect as I am, I do need some help with one challenge that I keep being told is bad.  I have dreams of being the next Gold Medalist in the High Jump in the 2020 Summer Olympics.  I have incredible strength in my legs that helps me leap over fences.  I know this is not safe and it has caused my last family a lot of pain and frustration.  I believe with support and love, I can overcome this dream and look towards a future with new dreams.  Hey,  I wonder if I could become the “Worlds Most Lovable Dog?”  I know I have it in me!  If you think I would be a great addition to your family, please contact GPRA today at info@greatpyratlanta.com.

Hi, I’m Lavendar, a beautiful young girl who was found by Animal Control. Everyone at the shelter said I am a very happy and outgoing girl. Since coming to GPRA, I have been given so much attention that I really excited about what my future holds. Being a young 1.5 year old slender beauty queen is touch work and I get a little jealous of anyone else getting attention. I think I would do best in a home where I am the only fur kid. Since my lonely past is over with, I am excited to learn new things with my family. I am learning how to walk on a leash, sleep on a soft and comfy bed, and trust humans again. Love and companionship is something that has been lacking this my past life and it is time for me to be part of a family. If you think I would be the perfect match, contact GPRA today at info@greatpyratlanta.com for more information.
