Hellos from us to you!
We are the bonded, outgoing, and just-wanna-have-fun Starsky and Hutch coming to you from the big screen with paws ready for lots of love!

Starsky: We are active and fun-loving boys! Some of our favorite pastimes are running around and being with humans!
Hutch: We hope that our future humans will play and walk with us!
Starsky: Another favorite pastime is eating! Yes, breakfast and dinner are favorite times of the day. As growing boys, we like our groceries! We need to eat slower, and feeding in separate spaces will help us.
Hutch: You tell them, Starsky…I am perfecting my puppy begging eyes! You forgot to mention that treats are great, too!
Starsky: Another thing about us is that we have a lot of energy, which is typical in young dogs, especially Pyrs!
Hutch: We are excited when we see humans and jump for joy!
Starsky: With additional guidance from our humans, we will learn not to jump! Those treats will help us learn commands and good manners.
Hutch: Yep, treats, treats, treats! Outside, we do our business pretty well, too! Can we have treats when we come back to the house?
Starsky: Our foster family says that we are almost entirely housetrained, which is excellent for young Pyrs.
Hutch: We will also need lots of walks for exercise and a secure, fenced-in backyard for playtime.

Hoping for lots of Pyr-adventures with our humans!

Happy day greetings to all! I am Harry. As a young Pyr, I have a lot to figure out and learn. Similar to every young dog, I will need patience, dedicated time, and training to help me be my very best Pyr self!  Are you ready to help me learn?
Lucky for me, I am now with a wonderful foster family. Gosh, I did not know humans could be so kind and loving. Here is what my foster family knows about me.
“Harry is very loving and joyful when he feels safe and loved and will give you the very best tail wags! But, for now, Harry seems to do best in a quiet and calm setting as he is still decompressing and learning all about his new surroundings and humans.”
“Harry has not had one single accident in our home. And, he is only ten months old -wow!”
“Harry is smart and picks up cues from our Pyr.  However, our Pyr is on the submissive side, so I think a more alpha Pyr will be an excellent coach for Harry to help build his confidence and keep him in line.”
“He is reactive to all new noises and barks deeply. I think he may have been an outside dog as every single house noise seems utterly foreign to him. However, he is getting used to our everyday noises. Today, no reaction to the coffee brewing or the cereal bowl and spoons clanging over breakfast. Progress!”
“Harry is terrified of the garbage truck.” (Whatever is that big thing that makes lots of noise? Will it return?)
“Harry has adapted wonderfully to our home with our hardwood flooring. However, Harry will not go up the stairs. We encourage him up the steps, but he gets frightened, freezes, and will not budge. (Cannot say that I have ever seen stairs before, and once I get up, how ever do I get down?)
“Yes, Harry can be a little needy, but it is in a very tender and endearing way. I question how much love Harry received in his former life as we do not know his backstory. But, if Harry trusts you, he gives the most AMAZING and INTENTIONAL love you can receive from a dog…And, I have a dog, and it’s a unique kind of love he gives/needs. Harry also greets you with the most JOYOUS tail wags as if he has not seen you for months.”
“Last night, Harry slept straight through the night and awakened us with lots of smooches, love and tail wagging. Harry is such a LOVING and endearing young Pyr, and I know GPRA will find him the very best home!”
“One of my favorite things about Harry is his soulful eyeliner eyes and unique eyeliner ears! (Aww, thank you. My Pyr-heart just doubled in size. Thank you for loving me.)
Your Pyr-endearing boy, Harry

Hey, all! I am the adorable Snoopy Brown! Would you believe that I was a homeless, wandering pup? Yes, I was! Those were scary days, and I never want to do that again. But, lucky for me, GPRA promises that I will never be on my own again.

My foster family is teaching me lots of great things! They say that I am a “work in progress.” Yep, that’s typical for young dogs. Just remember that ‘progress’ is the keyword! This Snoopy girl is super grateful to them, and I am working hard to get ready for my big adoption day!

Here are a few things my foster family has learned about me.

“Snoopy is highly active. She is very playful and good with teenage kids and their friends. Snoopy knows ‘sit,’ ‘no,’ ‘potty,’ and ‘come.'” (Whether it is with commands or playing with humans, I do my best to be the very best Pyr-girl I can be. Do you like to play, too?)

“Snoopy has figured out our potty time routine. Although I have not tried grooming yet, we can touch her anywhere. When outside, she does not try to break out by digging under or jumping the fence. While walking, she does pull on the leash. She will need leash training.” (I am open to all the love my humans can give me! When walking on a leash, I can get a bit excited! All I want to do is GO, GO, GO! I hope my future family is ready for lots of walking adventures together! No worries, I will learn the leash thing!)

“Snoopy has taken some time to warm up to us but has been coming around every day. (Being in a new home was scary! However, my foster family is super kind to me, so I am beginning to trust, and my fun personality is starting to shine through!)

“Snoopy is a bit protective of her food bowl and eats very fast, but she can be talked down from eating from one of my other dogs’ bowls.” (During my homeless days, I learned that food is something to gulp because I never knew if I would have another meal. With time, I will trust that my tummy will be full and satisfied every day.)

Pyr-grateful for a new start, Snoopy Brown

Hi, I am the charming Beau Dandelion. I was a stray that walked up to someone’s home one day. Lucky for me, there was a nice lady who took me in and contacted those who could help me. Gosh, how lucky can a Pyr boy get to find just the right person after many homeless days!

Everyone says that I am super cute. (I prefer super handsome, but cute is ok, too.) They also say that I am sweet and gentle. (Well, thank you. I try.)

I’m now with an awesome foster family that will help me transition to my Pyr-ever home. (Can’t wait for the day to call a family and home my very own.)

Here are a few things that my foster family shared with GPRA about me.
“For only a ten-month-old Pyr, Beau is doing great in the house. He is shy, curious, submissive, and friendly.”

“Beau will chew, so we offer an approved alternative for chewing, which he needs as a growing boy.” (As you know, young dogs chew, but with patient owners who will redirect my chew needs, I will grow out of this phase.)

“If you stand next to him, Beau will roll over to have his tummy rubbed.” (Tummy rubs are fantastic!)

“Beau is still learning leash manners and how to walk on a leash.” (Yep, the leash thing is new, but I’m a quick learner.)

“Beau is house-trained.” (I told you I’m a quick learner.)

“Beau loves the backyard. He walks around and then returns on his own to the door to be let back inside.” (Having my very own backyard and home is much better than being a wandering and homeless stray.)

“We noticed that Beau is scared of fireworks.” (Yes, many fearless Pyrs are frightened by fireworks. By anticipating the timing of fireworks and getting me out and back inside before the loud noises occur, you will help ease my worries and keep me safe.)
Your easy-going and Pyr-gentle boy, Beau

I like swimming! Yeah, it’s unusual for a Great Pyrenees but it’s true for this guy. In my short 10 months I’ve made it to 60lbs., learned how to stay in a crate, potty outside, and ride well in the car. But, I can’t do doctor stuff and that’s what my owner needs most now. I really want my next home to be forever, so I’ll share some private stuff, too. For example, being less than a year old, I still get excited with strangers, need better leash manners, and some socialization with other dogs. I play pretty well most of the time but can get a tad bossy. I’m also a bit protective of my food and personal space. So, I’m looking for a dog-smart human to make sure I stick to the rules until they all become good habits. If you want a loyal, loving, puppy you can guide and shape into the dog of your dreams, I might be him! Please email info@greatpyratlanta.com, click “Contact Us” or choose “Apply to Adopt” below so we can meet. There’s no obligation but some treats would be nice.

Hey there, I’m Bear while my name is easy to remember, I sure can’t remember anything else about myself. I’m a 10-month-old girl, and same as my brother Bandit, I’m a bit unsure of new people and places. I’ll bark back when I know more but it’s probably a good idea to have a treat ready if we meet.

My family needs you to want me. At 10 months old, and 100 lbs., I’m too much dog for my suddenly sick mom and unwell grandmother. They’re heartbroken about doing what’s best for me so I really want to help them feel better by getting a great home. As a puppy, I don’t have a long history, or a lot of behaviors, to share but here’s what I know: I’m sweet, loving, and still working on potty training. I’m great with my young human siblings, my Dachshund and Lab/Pit canine ones, and the cats (who I like to pet with my Pyr paw). Leash walking will be a new experience because “outside” has always meant a fenced yard. So far, I’ve never been allowed on the furniture so if that’s your preference, we’re set. If you want a couch buddy, I’ll learn! However, not sure if I’ll get used to car rides or eating chicken. I’m not a vegetarian or anything, chicken just really upsets my tummy and makes me itch. Still, this doesn’t seem like a problem, I’ve seen tons of TV commercials for lots of different kinds of dog foods.
