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…

Choose me and if you keep my name, it’ll be summer all the time! I’m a year old and a mere 50 lbs., so far. Some very nice strangers have been feeding and petting me but now it’s time to find my forever family. They say I’m a good girl who showed up knowing how to use the doggy door and walk on a leash. Supposedly humans like it when dogs do these things the same way they like dogs to be playful, calm, and not afraid of things. I check those boxes, if they’re on your Pyr wish list. Oh, and on the outside chance you have goats, we should get along fine. I’m very happy the people I’m “visiting” never asked me to go in a crate, I don’t know if I’d like that or not. However, I do like chewing on bones and balls. There’s one thing I’m not sure of, and it could mean I’ll need an extra understanding family: my temporary family says maybe my ears don’t work. Personally, I disagree because it feels awesome when people scratch them! Still, since I respond more to stomping on the floor than sounds, could be I’m the perfect dog for a noisy household! If you please email info@greatpyratlanta.com, click “Contact Us” or choose “Apply to Adopt” below, the GPRA folks will probably need more. Besides, my paws are tired from typing all these words one letter at time. Heading out to play instead!

I’m here! The people-loving, 1-year-old, 100 lb. Pyr who’s happy to avoid car rides and play with you instead! In fact, I love playing with kids so much, I forget I outweigh some of them, lol. Surely you know I’m not trying to knock them over, it just happens. Hey, I have a great idea: you buy some super-duper treats and I’ll practice not jumping over and over and over until all the snacks are gone! I lived with a lab, so I know I’m dog friendly, but I don’t know what it’s like living and sleeping in a house, even though I used to visit my neighbors every day for extra hugs and ear rubs. Guess we’ll need another bag of those super-duper treats, huh? Well, I’m ready if you are so please email info@greatpyratlanta.com, click “Contact Us” or choose “Apply to Adopt” below.

Well, I don’t have much to say about myself but fortunately the little bit I’ve overheard is all good. I’m 1-year-old and weigh 72 lbs, which means, given my height and size, this boy has room for about 20 more pounds worth of treats and healthy food! The shelter people say I am and let me quote them, so I get it right, “incredibly friendly, goofy, and happy”. To hear them tell it, I also have great leash manners. I’ll take the compliment even though I don’t know what a leash is. However, I know I like playing with other dogs, any size, boys and girls. Cats are fun, too.  Do you have other dogs? Or a cat? Or treats? These are all good reasons to please email info@greatpyratlanta.com, click “Contact Us”, or choose “Apply to Adopt” below.

What does a 1-year-old, 67 lb. sweet puppy do with all her energy? Well, if I lived with people who had a yard and time to play with me, I’d probably run from corner to corner then rollover for tummy rubs. If I had dog siblings (or even dog friends), I’d pretend wrestle and grab their tails. Or, if I had a cat, I’d play chase and always let Kitty win. I lived in a small apartment with a very busy parent and I had too much pent-up puppy energy.  I’m housetrained and know basic commands. I do need help learning not to guard my food, water and toys. If you have the love, patience, and energy it takes to love and help me grow, I will be the most amazing Pyr ever. I just need the right place and owner to blossom.

Just like my cartoon namesake, I’m friendly and easy going but at 1.3-years-old and 80 lbs., I can’t float in the air to say hello. Instead, I greet people and dogs with smiles and tail wags. I’m not food or toy aggressive although one time another dog fought with me about food, I don’t know why. Running and screaming kids sometime make me nervous so I might be more like Casper the Ghost than I thought if I like quiet places.  Here’s what really matters: I’m a healthy, happy dog ready for a forever home with good leaders, lots of petting, playtime, and love.
