Ahoy, mates! I am Pyr-ate Jack Sparrow! Hailing from the far-away lands of homeless Great Pyrenees, I will charm my way into your heart! This is what GPRA knows about me.
“Jack will do very well with younger dogs and an active family.” (Yes, I very much agree because I love to play with fur-siblings and cuddle with my humans.)
“Anyone lucky enough to adopt Jack has to be okay with Jack being on the couch because this boy will sit on your lap like a cat. He still thinks he is a puppy that can squeeze onto your lap.” (What’s wrong with me being on your lap and on the couch? I want to be as close as possible to my humans!)
“Jack is quite active and will thrive in a backyard. He also loves daily walks.” (Yes, outside time is the best! Do you like going on walks, too?)
Pyr-ready to make land into your heart and home. – Jack

Hellos! I am the shy Gretchen, but I want to find a fur-ever home, so I’m trying to be a brave girl by introducing myself to you with the help of the humans who know me. Here goes…
“Gretchen is a SWEET, SWEET girl and has been through full obedience classes with the Pups with Purpose Program that involves inmates in training rescue dogs. (Yep, this Program is a win: win for rescue pups and inmates who are seeking help to re-enter society.)
“Gretchen is house trained and knows many commands.” (At only 11 months, I am well on my way to being the best-mannered Pyr girl around!)
“Gretchen lacks confidence and needs more socialization. She can be timid around humans.” (Due to a lack of human interaction/socialization outside of the Program, I’m a pup that needs a lot more interaction and engagement with the outside world to reach my full potential. With loving, trusting, and patient owners who will conscientiously work on this with me, I will work hard to please you and overcome my trust issues. Do you think you can help me?)
“Gretchen LOVES, LOVES, LOVES other dogs. She is extremely playful and good with cats.” (I love to play and run around with my puppy pals! As for cats, I only saw them in a shelter, but my humans think that I will be fine with cats. Just introduce us slowly and keep your eyes on us until you know all is okay. Do you have dogs at your home wishing for a fur-sister?)
Your Pyrly shy but loving girl, Gretchen

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

Hello, Hello! Simon and I came to GPRA together. We love being together but we’re not bonded and can be adopted to different families.

We both are goofy, grateful, and playful!

Dante: Thanks to GPRA, we are no longer abandoned Pyrs living on our own!
Simon: Yes, abandoned! After our previous owner moved away, we were left all alone!

Dante: Yes, left to fend for ourselves! But, thanks to a lovely lady who found us, we now get a second chance at living a safe and loving life!

Simon: As Pyrs, we are resourceful and intelligent and found shelter for ourselves under a trailer. The trailer provided refuge from the heat and rain, but it was not cozy.

Dante: Do you think you can give us a cozy home with our very own dog beds and food bowls?

Simon: Dante, can you even imagine sleeping in a dog bed?

Dante: Since we had each other, life on our own was ok, because we knew of nothing else. Although, finding food was not easy. Now that we are with GPRA, food and fresh water arrive twice each day. Life is definitely looking Pyr-tastic!

Simon: The one good thing about life on our own was that I had Dante, and we played together a lot! You see, I can be a little skittish! GPRA learned this when they arrived to save us.

Dante: Yes, Simon is a bit more cautious, but he knows a good human when he sees one. We knew the GPRA volunteer had arrived to help us, so we eagerly jumped right into the van and were excellent travelers.

Simon: Not bad for life on our own Pyrs, right? Yep, we are awesome boys!

Dante: We hope to meet our future family soon!

Your Pyr-fun and goofy boys, Dante and Simon

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
