Is it my turn? Okay, here goes. I am Willow Walker, and I wish for a do-over and second chance to have a great life. But, of course, we all wish for that at some point in our lives, right?

As a young Pyr, I still need dedicated time, patience, and training from my owners. So what else can I share? I am housetrained and love car rides, and my favorite place is the backyard, which I call my Pyr-happy place. My previous family taught me the trade game, which means that if you need to take something away from me, it is best to trade it with something else. GPRA will show you how to play the trade game and explain why it is helpful to all dogs.

Here’s what GPRA’s wonderful walkers have learned about me.
“Willow is smart, gentle, friendly, active, and playful. Although somewhat shy at first, she warms up quickly and shares her Pyr-affection.”

“Willow is a sweetheart and joy to walk. Although she pulls a bit on leash walks, she will continue learning from dedicated leash training.” (I will do my best to learn good leash manners. If you bring some yummy treats on our walks, I think I will learn even faster!)

“Willow is friendly with other dogs she meets, trading sniffs and tail wags. Willow’s good looks and tall, lean frame make her a showstopper! (Why, thank you! Can you keep me brushed out so that I continue looking fabulous?)

GPRA recommends that Willow’s home have children 10+ years old.

Pyr-grateful for another chance, Willow Walker

Hi there! Loveable and loads-of-fun Olaf Viking is here to share what makes me irresistible. With a name like Olaf, how can I not be irresistible? So, with the help of my foster mom, I’m proud to pyr-sent myself to you:

“Olaf is a super sweetheart boy! He loves to play and be active with his humans! He also loves to go on walks and can be a couch potato when he fulfills his exercise needs. If you let him, he will sit on you to get as close as possible!” (Yep! I love my adventure time, but I also love to cuddle up with my favorite cuddle buddies-my humans! I hope you have room on your lap for me, too! All this Olaf boy needs is love (and treats!) to live a happy life!)

“Olaf knows the commands: “sit,” “down,” and “come,” and we are working on “stay.” Olaf is very playful with dogs that will play and is respectful of those that do not.” (Learning the command “stay” can be challenging for me because all I want to do is follow my humans. Oh-and I love to play a lot! Do not worry, I can be a pyr-fect gentle-pyr and will settle in for an afternoon nap, too.)

“Olaf loves brushing, except on his tail. He has not tried to jump or dig under the fence. He does well when left alone in the house with the other dog.” (What can I say? I’m a pyr-fect roommate.)

If you say “yes” to me, I will be your big white gentle giant fur-ever! And, like my namesake, Olaf in Frozen, you will “be worth melting for” to me, too.
 
Your Pyr-loveable boy, Olaf Viking

Hello, I am Chuck Norris. No, not ‘the’ Chuck Norris, but arguably the much better Pyr version Chuck Norris. GPRA’s care team says that I am a very happy, sometimes shy, friendly, and playful Pyr. If all 107 pounds of me will not fit on your lap, then snuggling is just fine, too! GPRA has also given me an excellent report on my leash walking manners. I am learning fast and at the prime age for some obedience training which will help me be my very best Pyr self and make you very proud of your boy! Come and meet me soon… Your Pyrly cool and gorgeous-eyed boy, Chuck Norris

Hi, I am the handsome Pyr boy, Alan, looking for my furever home. Thankfully, GPRA heard about me through a county shelter. Now, I’m under the care of this fabulous Rescue group. It’s a bit scary to be in new surroundings, but I am taking it in stride. Some humans say I am a bit timid, but this is understandable. No worries, my Pyr confidence will return when I feel comfortable again. There are three things I love, humans, outside time, and affection. I may be a little stubborn in typical Pyr fashion at times (this is a breed characteristic that humans adore about Pyrs), so I am just preparing you now.

Looking forward to pets, hugs and furever with my family… – Alan

Hellos!
I am Zeus, and everyone says that my charming smile fits my legendary name.

The first 18 months of my life have been a bit hard because I was tied outside a lot.  During that time, other dogs attacked me. As you can imagine, that was really hard on me, and I am anxious about new situations.  Trusting others will take time, and GPRA volunteers are already helping me.  When I first met them, they gave me chicken treats and showed me lots of affection. WOW, that is really great stuff, and I definitely want more of that kind of life!

Basically, I am a really good boy that needs time to learn how to be an inside dog, patience to teach me dog manners, and lots of love and hugs to build my trust.  In return, I will be your faithful companion and loyal guardian.

Looking for brighter days and a family that will love me forever.

– Zeus

Where to start…First, I am the 1 ½-year-old Snowball. Yes, I think it is a fitting name for a tall, handsome boy like me. I will be even more stunning when my coat gets some needed care. While I wonder why my previous owner could no longer care for me and surrendered me to a shelter, the decision will help me find a forever home and loving family. A lot has changed in my life, but I am doing my best to not be nervous or scared and starting to trust all of the good people who are helping me. The leash thing was new, but I am getting the hang of it. I have heard GPRA volunteers and AWC staff say that I am a charming boy that just needs confidence, patience, TLC, and time. This makes me happy, and I look forward to meeting my new family.

Looking for a new life and adventure… Snowball

Hi! I’m Toby! I’ve just arrived. I’m around one and a half years old and weigh 83 lbs. All I know about myself is that I used to be with chickens on a farm and they and I didn’t get along great and I kept escaping. I ended up in a shelter and now I’m here, ready for my new fur-ever home! People say I’m sweet and like to play with kids. More info coming soon…

Seems like some humans go to the people vet more than others, or at least that’s what it seems like for my owner. I bet that’s one reason this 1.5-year-old, 80 lb. girl needs a new home. If it will help you decide, keep in mind I’m good with dogs, cats, and kids. I already know how to walk well on a leash, I need to learn inside manners since I’m currently an outside dog. My people say I like things called grooming and playing. Oh, and they also say I smile a lot, except when it’s storming. Yep, thunderstorms are unsettling, but I’m usually fine in the barn. Which tells me I bet I’ll be even happier in the house with you petting me.
