Hi! I’m new! I’ve just arrived from a shelter. People say I’m people, dog and cat friendly. They also say I’m a super sweet dog. More info coming soon…

Our main mission at GPRA is to find the right permanent home for Great Pyrenees in distress, whether they are strays or from an overpopulated kill or no-kill shelter. We don’t care how old they are or what their medical condition is because we will make sure they receive a comprehensive medical evaluation, spaying or neutering, and even behavioral training if necessary.

Cloud Speckles here to say hi and introduce myself.

Everyone says I am a beautiful girl. (Well, thank you very much.) What is even better is that I am a beautiful girl on the inside, too.

My sister was recently adopted, and I hope to find a Pyr-fect family just like she did. Lucky for me, I have a wonderful foster family that is working on increasing my confidence. They provided GPRA with helpful insights about me, which follow.

“Cloud is still shy and nervous. When she first came into our home, she would hide from us. By coaxing her out with xylitol-free peanut butter, she began to trust us more. Cloud makes progress every day.” (It has been baby steps for me, but my Pyr-confidence is slowly returning.)

“Cloud is very intelligent. She knows we are using the peanut butter to trick her.” (Yep, I wised up to that tactic.)

“Cloud will take treats from your hand and is a very gentle dog.” (I am indeed the sweetest girl.)

“Inside the house, Cloud is chill and a couch potato. She has found her favorite places and stays there.” (Pyrs like me are very chill. Where might I find my favorite spot in your home?)

“Outside, Cloud is getting braver and is exploring the yard. A fenced-in backyard is a must for her because she is her happiest in the backyard.”

“Cloud is great with kids of all ages. She loves watching them play in the yard and is gentle and willing to accept treats and petting from them.” (Yes, the tiny humans are delightful to watch.)

“Cloud lies next to the piano when I play.” (I love listening to my human play beautiful music.)

“Cloud is house-trained. She has free run of the house when we leave.

“Last but not least, Cloud is so sweet and is making lots of progress. She still is not a leash walker because it is new to her. We are using patience, positive reinforcement and encouragement, food rewards, and lots of affection. (I have the very best Pyr-foster family!)

Your Pyr-beauty inside and out, Cloud Speckles

Hi, I’m, Ghost, your friendly Pry!
Part of my story is sad, but the other part is wonderful because of my guardian angel.
Thanks to the watchful eyes of my guardian angel, who lived next door, she brought me food and water where I lived tied up in a plastic shed. After multiple attempts, my guardian angel finally convinced my neglectful owner to surrender me. I hope every neglected dog has someone who will never give up on them. Without the kindness and persistence of my guardian angel and GPRA, I would never have had a chance at a good life.
Here are a few things that GPRA has learned about me.
“Ghost is a sweet and cuddly dog. Sadly, he was tied up in a backyard shed.” (Yes, after living tied up, I have still kept my Pyr optimism and good heart. I also have lots of stored up energy and love running around.)
“Ghost will love having a fenced-in backyard and another dog his equal so that he has a playmate.” (A fenced-in backyard is high on my list!)
Ghost is still learning leash manners and is a work in progress. (Yes, I have good days and days where I can do better with the leash thing.)
“Ghost is friendly, playful, and has lots of energy.” (As a young Pyr, I’m at the perfect age for obedience training. Remember, time invested in young Ghost will help me grow up to be a well-mannered Great Pyrenees. I want to make you proud!)
Looking forward to car rides, walks in the park, watching movies together, celebrating birthdays, and everything else a family does with their Great Pyrenees.
Forever grateful and Pyr-excited about a new life,
Ghost
