Good day to you! I am the wonderful boy, Murphey Moore. I was adopted by a loving owner who realized that my size was a bit more than she could manage. It was hard to say goodbye because we bonded very quickly. You see, I immediately knew that she was my charge, which means I was very committed to watching over her and our home. After all, this is the nature of the Great (emphasis on GREAT) Pyrenees! We are devoted guardians.

Here are a few things my owner shared with GPRA.
“I adopted Murphey because he was the only dog that got along with my cat and dog.”
“Murphey is a truly great dog. He follows me everywhere.”
“Murphey was quite famous and friendly with everyone at Petsmart.”
“Murphey has a wise demeanor. He is smart and quite sensitive.”
“Murphey needs someone who will invest time into teaching him leash manners.”

So, that is a bit about me. As my foster family learns more, I will update you. Until then, I will be waiting to meet my Pyr-ever family.

Pyrly faithful, Murphey Moore

Hi, I am the sweet and timid Dixie. My foster family says that I am quiet and still unsure of my surroundings. The leash thing is terrifying to me, and I will pancake out. No worries, other Pyrs have come into GPRA doing the same thing. With time, patient owners help Pyrs like me to feel secure and build our trust. In no time, I will get the leash thing conquered! Until then, a secure, fenced-in backyard will be an excellent place for me to get daily exercise.

I’m great with other dogs, ignore the felines, and adore the smaller humans. I’m also getting the housetraining thing figured out and will go to the door to let my humans know it is time to take me out.

Brushing makes me very happy because I am not used to such loving care and attention. You see, my sister and I came from an awful situation. The love thing from humans is all very new to me, but I like it.

With time, you will see me blossom into a regal, confident, and happy Great Pyrenees. Are you ready to join me on my journey?
Pyrly grateful, Dixie

Hi, I’m Angie. I just arrived with my beautiful sister, Dixie. Everyone says that I am super sweet and still nervous, especially on a leash. It will take us time to decompress from our previous life. More info coming soon…

Hey, y’all! How are you today? I’m Bailey Barnacle, and you can call me Bailey. I am still a young boy learning how to be a well-mannered Pyr, but I’m learning fast and ready for my new life!

I was surrendered because the recovery center where I lived closed. My job at the center was to brighten everyone’s day. Although I was only there a short time, I think I did an excellent job at adding lots of joy.

My foster mom describes me as a charming and beautiful boy that loves affection. Many times, she finds me right by her side when we are in the house together. I’m house-trained, easy-going with other dogs and cats, and enjoy having a place where I can run around, explore and get exercise. Would you believe that I know commands such as sit, down, shake, come, and stay? (Well, I’m not always good with the stay command, but I’m doing Pyr-awesome on learning the others!)

Have I convinced you that I am a Pyr-fect boy for your life? If yes, I cannot wait to meet you. Pyrly happy, Bailey.

Hello, everyone! I go by the new name of Speckles. No surprise on my name, right? Everyone says that my speckles are my signature beauty marks. They are indeed gorgeous and very kissable!

All you need to know about me is that I am pure sweetness. As a respectful girl that loves, loves, loves humans, I will show you how trusting I am by rolling on my back for belly rubs. Whenever you want to watch tv, take a nap, work on your laptop, or chill out, your cuddly couch lounger will be by your side.

Many things have changed in my life. Since I’m still a youngster, it will take me time to learn, trust and adjust to my surroundings. No worries, because I’m eager to learn how to walk on things such as shiny hardwood floors and go up and down the stairs.

Everyone falls in love with me. Come meet me soon…
Pyrly hopeful, Speckles

Hello, I am Maggie Mango. I hope you are having a Pyr-tastic day!
Here are a few things my foster mom shared with GPRA.
“Maggie is a cuddler, curious, smart, cautious, loving, and devoted. Maggie is also still puppyish in many ways.” (Yes, I have many excellent Great Pyrenees qualities, and I’m also still learning how to trust and feel safe.)
“Maggie is leash trained and knows commands such as sit, stay, down, and off.” (I’m off to a great start and will need more obedience training to help young me grow up to be my best Pyr-self.)
“Maggie gets along with our dog and cat. (Having another fur-friend will be great! Then, I will have a playmate.)
“Maggie barks to go outside and paws the door to come in.” (Yes, I try to be a good girl.)
“Maggie needs someone who will devote the time to increasing her confidence and work with her as she adjusts to a new home.” (Time, lots of patience, and love are all I need. As my trust increases, so will my Pyr-confidence!)
“Maggie is a true guardian. She alerts us to visitors.” (I do my best to be a faithful guardian.)
I’m genuinely a sweet girl seeking a loving, understanding, and trusting owner who will be mine forever. Pyrly yours, Maggie

Sweet, playful Elsa here… Life has thrown me lots of unknowns. Last year, I was found as a stray and taken in by a caretaker, but this person no longer has enough time for me. So, here I am with GPRA putting my best pry paw forward to stay positive and “let it go”. (Heard that song in the “Frozen” movie while watching TV with my previous owner.)
Some good things about me are that I am house-trained and an easy-going Pyr. I have not been around other dogs, cats, or children, so these things will be new. However, I love playful interactions, so I cannot imagine not making new friends.
Looking forward to treats, love, and forever with a family…
Your good girl, Elsa

Please read my story. I’m so sweet and snuggly but I have to be honest about why I need you. Easy stuff first: I’m a year old, weigh 80 lbs., am house & leash trained, and love being pet everywhere. It’s even OK to grab my collar after I get to know you. And that’s why I need patience and understanding: it takes time for me to trust people. It’s wonderful my current family does so much for their neighbors and community but all the activity and noise and strangers, well, it makes me anxious. The low fence makes it easy for me to escape the stress, but leaving the yard is dangerous and scares my family. Have you ever nurtured a dog like me who needs patience and security and calm company? Can you be inside with me, or take me outside with you? I’m not much of an alone dog, at least not now. Who knows what I’ll become with the right human, or family? Well, hopefully I chose enough of the right words to show you my heart and you’ll please email info@greatpyratlanta.com, click “Contact Us” or choose “Apply to Adopt” below to talk about sharing yours with me.

Since I’m only a year old–and weigh 70 lbs.—there’s plenty of time in “forever” for me to learn a new name, if you want to give me one that is. You could call me Housetrained, She Who’s Good with Dogs, Cats, and Kids or maybe Happy Dog with Nose Out the Car Window. Well, those are kinda long for first names now that I say them out loud. I bet you can think of a shorter name for a friendly, active, playful, noise, family dog who is a little shy at first, likes to go running, and is totally OK with you touching her collar. Since I’m that dog, that name would be mine, too! And after we play the name game, we can try the be-patient-while-you-help-me-learn-big-girl-barking-manners activities I’ve heard so much about in Pyr circles. ApPYRently many of us need help adapting some of our breed tendencies to neighborhood living. So, what do you think? Are you ready to please email info@greatpyratlanta.com, click “Contact Us” or choose “Apply to Adopt” below? I hope so because I’m ready for my new home and maybe even a new name.

Hi! I’m Moose! I’ve just arrived and this is what I know about myself so far: I’m only 1 year old; I’m sweet, friendly and playful; and I’m playful with children and submissive with strangers. I used to sleep and mostly spent my days in the barn with goats. More info coming soon…
