Hellos, everyone! I am proud mama Pyr Toastie. It’s hard for me to believe how much my life has changed after bringing seven puppies into the world in a shelter. Thankfully, GPRA helped my puppies, their handsome Pyr sire, and me. I am one proud mama and did my best by the puppies! Now that my babes are being adopted into loving homes, it is my turn to find my happy fur-ever.
Did you see the fun video of me barking at my foster human sister because I wanted her sandwich? Yep, that’s adorable me! So what’s a hungry mama to do when she sees a sandwich? Lucky for me, I got a little bit of that sandwich!
Here is what my Pyr-magnificient foster family knows about me.
“Mama Toastie is an earnest Mom, but she also has a super playful side, too! (I will have more time to play when I have raised my puppies. Will you play with me?)
“Toastie can be very chill. She walks next to me off-leash around the house. But, of course, this could be because her pups are nearby.” (Actually, it is because I love being close to my humans who take loving care of me.)
“Toastie now comes into the house by herself and lays down to chill out while her puppies are taking a pupper break.” (A mama needs breaks from the puppies. I cannot wait for the days when I can doze the day away without my adorable rascals.)
“Toastie enjoys being brushed and loves belly rubs and ear rubs.” (I’m a genuinely lovely Pyr girl.)
Your Pyr-fect girl, Toastie 🐾♥️🐾

Hi, there! I am Pyr Brida (Bree-duh). Thanks to my foster family, I’m ready to be adopted and loved fur-ever! Here is what they know about me.
“Brida is extremely lovable with her humans and great with other dogs. Her favorite thing is to rest her head on her humans. If you hold her head in your hands, she will be the happiest Pyr in the world.” (The human love thing is the best, and I cannot get enough.)
“Brida is a champion leash walker.” (Aww. thank you. I try to be a good girl and please my humans.)
“Drum roll, please… Brida is officially house-trained! 🎉🎉  Next, we are working on basic commands with Brida, such as “sit,” “stay,” and “wait.” (I am one grateful Pyr. My foster family is investing a lot of time to get me ready for my fur-ever family.)
“Brida loves to play but can also be super chill.” (Yep, Pyrs like to have fun but can also zen out.)
“Our only caution to her future family is that Brida will look for an opportunity to escape through an open door. So, her future family will need to be extra careful to ensure she does not get out.” (Yep, this is my work in progress. Lucky for me, my humans are doing everything possible to keep me safe. In time, I will learn that my home is the only place I want to be.)
Your Pyr-fun girl, Brida

If you’re wondering how I got my name, that’s one of the few things I can tell you about myself. GPRA named me Blue Jean for my beautiful Husky-like eyes! Oh, and I also know that I am too thin. However, everything is new and scary, so eating while acclimating to my new surroundings is not a priority. Give me a little more time, and I will relax and make up for lost meals. The first time my foster mom took me outside, I hid in the first corner I found. And, when she brought me inside, I claimed the bathroom as my safe space. Since the door is always open, I hear my foster mom and brother talking. They always stop to pet me and say hello when they walk past, which helps to build my trust.
Here’s a list my foster mom wrote for me to share.
Things I learned in my first 48 hours with Blue Jean…
1. A severe thunderstorm with raucous hail and pounding rain is a non-event; a car passing the fence while Blue Jean is outside is terrifying. (Those things humans call cars are bizarre.)
2. She’s curious but not brave enough to follow through yet. (With time, my Pyr confidence will begin to shine through!)
3. Since she knows what “outside” means, Blue Jean seems house trained. She is also starting to respond to her name. (Blue Jean is a cool name. Thank you.)
4. Treats serve no purpose. (As I settle in and get more comfortable, I am sure healthy treats will become one of my favorite things.)
5. She’s wondering if she can climb or jump my seven-foot fence. (GPRA recommends that adopters carefully monitor their new Pyr’s outside time.)
6. She will probably be fine with other dogs and cats yet be timid and scared of noisy or super active kids until she settles in. She will thrive (slowly) with a quiet, patient, and experienced dog family.
7. She can lift the very tip of her tail into a possible, barely noticeable, nano-second wag. (With time, patience, and love, my tail will be wagging a lot more.)
Pyrly sweet and trying to be a brave girl, Blue Jean EmojiEmoji

Bruno Barnes here, with my alluring baby blues! (My foster mom has affectionately nicknamed me Blue.) Here is a list of several reasons why you should make me your cuddle Pyr! 

“Bruno Barnes LOVES his humans and wants nothing more than to be with them 24/7. ” 

“Bruno is very smart, alert, loyal, and gentle. Bruno will laze around, but when his human moves, he moves. He will thrive with an attentive owner who loves him just as much as he loves them!” (If I were to howl about my favorite things, my humans would be at the top of the list!)

“Bruno needs a second to warm up to guests but accepts them if you direct him and tell him they are your friend. He reacts well to other animals inside the home and is good with other dogs off-leash.” (Before becoming besties, I will give you the sniff test! Don’t worry though, I’ve never met a human friend who failed it!)

“Bruno knows basic commands but needs some cues. However, he is very smart and trainable. Bruno is housetrained and has never asked to go out other than getting antsy.” (I look forward to improving my Pyr manners with you! Maybe you can encourage me with some treats?)

If you leave the door to your heart open, I will walk right on in and stay!

Your blue-eyed Pyr boy, 
Bruno Barnes 💙💙

Hi there! Millo Mullens here, reporting for my Pyr-sentation! (That’s a Pyr presentation!) Here are a few bullet points about me.
“Milo is a super sweet family dog who LOVES to be loved on! He is very active and enjoys walks. He is happiest when he is outside in an open space and will thrive in a backyard.” (Unfortunately, I have not been able to get much outside time lately. 😔 I hope you can take me on lots and lots of walks. Even better, do you have a backyard?)
“Milo is afraid of thunderstorms and fireworks. So when he hears them, he immediately seeks out his humans.” (Yep, I know my humans will give me comforting pets and sweet words. Should you ever need support from your worries, I will be there for you, too!)
Since I am only two years old and not yet pyr-fect, but close, I am still learning every day and will need lots of love and patience to grow into the best Pyr boy possible!
P.S. GPRA recommends that my fur-ever home not have cats.
Pyrly hopeful for a new start,
❤️ Milo Mullens

Hi there! My name is Lex, how about we get to know each other?

I’ll start- let me just say I am an excellent and oh so handsome companion. I typically like to lounge around the house and “go with the flow” but will jump up to go for a walk with my humans any time!
Speaking of walks, I LOVE them and am very well-mannered on the leash. Just make sure (as any responsible dog owner should) that I am always on a leash or I might just try to escape for some extra fun and oh do I love to be chased!
I love love my family big and small but prefer big humans because you know, less tail tugging and more big boy exercise! I am house-trained *hold for applause* and am happy being loose in the house at all times! Bonus: I am great with cats, in fact I think they’re the boss of me and am very respectful of them.
I am very friendly towards all other doggos and strangers I meet, meeting new friends is fun so let’s do it often!
A few things they say potential families should note and things I can work on (pfft I’m already pyrfect though)
I have general anxiety, before my last home no one knows my history so we cannot say what from.
I do not like to be left outside… I do my business and back in I go or I will bark and quickly dig out of the yard. Uh oh.
I am not a fan of confinement: crates or car rides. So little in fact, I will try and climb all the way into the front seat to be in your lap… idk what is wrong with that though, I am the protector and would make a great chau”fur”.
I also get very protective of my food and bone around others I deem subordinate. I’m sure we can work this out though in good time!
Overall, I am the best boy who deserves lots of love and patience. I can be stubborn as many young male Pyrs are, but will reward you with my own fluffy hugs and cuddles on the couch. Let’s have a pyrfect pawty! What do you say?

Hellos. I am Tanya!
If you seek a lovely, friendly, and Pyr-sweet girl, then look no further because here I am. My previous owner really loved me but could no longer care for me. Before I was surrendered to GPRA, I slept in a van because my owner did not have other options. Now, I’m ready for a new family who will talk sweetly to me and keep me fur-ever.

My foster family is the absolute best. Here are a few things they have learned about me.

“Tanya loves new people and is very friendly.” (Yes, I love meeting and getting lots of pets from all the humans.)

“Tanya will make an ideal companion for someone who works at home and can take her on short walks throughout the day.”

“Tanya absolutely loves a fenced-in backyard and enjoys smelling the fresh air and just wandering around the yard.” (Psst…this is the secret to a happy Pry!)

“Tanya knows when it’s time for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. She will sit by her bowls or stand by the kitchen island waiting to be served dinner.” (Of course, I know when it’s time to eat, I’m a Pyr.)

“Tanya is somewhat of a couch potato. Her favorite thing is to sit on the outside deck or relax in her nest behind our rhododendrons!” (Most Pyrs claim favorite spots in the house and outside. My outdoor spot is very shady and even has flowers.)

“Tanya is still learning how to walk on a leash without pulling. We encourage her to take short walks several times throughout the day.” (I told you my foster family is the best!)

“Tanya loves to be brushed! She cannot get enough brushing.” (Yes, just keep brushing.)

So, that’s a bit about me. Now, it’s time to meet you!
Pyr-ready for the good life, Tanya

Hi, Cootie is my name. Yep, someone named me Cootie. As long as I have a loving human calling me Cootie, I will be your faithful guardian.
Since I am only two years old and have already been a momma, I’m excited to find my very own Pry-ever human family!
My previous family describes me as a family dog. Cats are cool, and I love children. A backyard that allows me to run around and get out all of my teenage energy is an ideal thing. If you do not have a backyard, count on me as your walking buddy. Just know, I still need time to improve on my leash manners. Be sure to walk me early in the morning or the evening when hot summer days have cooled down. Because of my double coat, humans need to be careful not to overdo activities with their Pyrs in the summer heat.
Additional training will help me grow up to be a well-mannered girl. If there are other dogs in the house, be sure to feed us separately and pick up food bowls after eating because I do not like sharing my food bowl. Yes, this is an area for improvement, and with some help from my humans, I will do better. You see, Great Pyrenees are people-pleasing, big loves that want to do the right thing. I’m already doing quite well with commands such as “sit,” “stay,” “off,” and “down.”
Here’s what my foster family said about me. As they learn more, I will update you.
“Cootie is a very loving dog. She is good with adults, kids, cats, and other dogs. She also understands ‘no’ and ‘heel’ when she is on leash.”
Are you ready to get some love from this Cootie girl?

Pyrly yours, Cootie ♥️
