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 ♥️

Hi there, I’m Buster Bentley. I guess it’s time for me to go in search of a new family. I’m a loving boy that will always greet you with a wagging tail and lots of love.

GPRA recommends an experienced Pyr owner who also has another mature Pyr or large breed female to support and teach me. You see, I have been missing my sister Pyr. She was my best friend and made every day better. Being alone is not something I like doing, so a home where my humans are around a lot is highly desirable. Also, please never put me in a crate as I intensely dislike confinement. A fenced-in and secure backyard will be ideal for me.

Just remember that I am only two years old, which means I’m a teenager and still figuring things out. I will need additional training, patience, and a loving human who will continue to work with me on my separation anxieties. Now, I’ll brag a bit about the commands that I have learned that include: “sit,” “come,” and “down.” I’m also great with the smaller humans you call children.

While I am on the right path to true happiness, I still need my humans’ help.

Your still learning and big loving boy, Buster Bentley

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 loves children. Children should be teens or older to walk Tanya because she is strong.” (Yes, I need more leash training, but I am improving every day.)

“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

Hellos! I am Peter Piper.

Everyone says that I am the boy that captures your heart at hello!

My backstory is a bit sad. You see, I ended up in a shelter emaciated and in rough shape. The caring Shelter staff knew I was extra special and nurtured me back to health. They then contacted GPRA to say that I was ready to be adopted. (Saying goodbye to them was hard, but I will be forever thankful for the care and love they gave me.)

GPRA’s team of fabulous volunteers also sees how special I am. Here is what they think about me.
“Peter Piper is an absolute love ❤️ bug!” (I even got a heart with that comment. Thank you!)

“Peter Piper is such a good boy. He listens beautifully and sits to be collared and leashed for walks.”

“I love chasing balls with Peter Piper. He is so much fun!” (Yes, I am a fun boy! Will you play with me, too?)

“This boy wants to be loved and pet all the time. I enjoy just being with him.” (Aww, thank you. I love being with loving humans, too!)

GPRA thinks that a knowledgeable Pyr owner will be a great fit for me.

Your Pyr-awesome boy, Peter Piper

Hi, I am Glenda. GPRA also saved me from the Virginia hoarding case. Would you believe that quiet, scared, and shy me is transforming into a confident, happy, and playful Pyr? Yep, I sure am!
GPRA’s team of wonderful volunteers has kept busy helping me learn how to walk on a leash. They are building my trust with lots of affection and belly rubs. Can I have more of that, please?
Like Diego, also up for adoption, I will only need time and a dedicated and loving owner who is willing to teach me everything I need to know.
My foster mom gives me an A ++ for being a cutie pie. She also says that I am smart, funny, and quite the stunner! (Thank you!)
Another Pyr told me that my very own home is out there and to keep wishing for the very best one. So, I will do this until my fur-ever humans come to get me.
Pyrly hopeful, Glenda

Hi, I am Roscoe. I’m small, cute and gentle natured. I walk well on a leash and really like to be pet!

I went through a recent injury but I’ve been getting better every day since then. With time, patience, understanding, training from my humans, lots of TLC, good nutrition, and vet care, you will see me transform into a magnificent Great Pyrenees. The cool part is that you can join me on my journey. It is a rewarding and loving journey that we can do together.
Your Pyr-cool boy, Roscoe

Hellos! I am Balto. By now, you know I was impounded due to neglect. Yes, my early years were very hard. Thankfully, GPRA came to my rescue.

If the name Balto is not familiar, let me share the story. Balto was the lead dog of a heroic dog sled team that ran through harsh winter conditions and delivered desperately needed medicine during the 1925 diphtheria epidemic in Alaska. (So, yes, Balto is my hero.)

My wonderful foster mom shared lots of information about me with GPRA. Here are a few things.
“Balto is sweet and has beautiful blue eyes.” (Thank you. Everyone always comments on my baby blues.)

” Balto is energetic, very friendly, affectionate, athletic, and submissive.” (Yes, I am a wonderful boy!)

“Balto walks well on a leash. He does not pull and is friendly towards other walkers. He can get a bit excited when meeting other dogs.” (Yes, I know; but, I’m just so excited to be living a whole new life. With your help and training, it will only take me a short time to improve on my manners.)

“Balto loves kids but may overpower younger kids.” (Yep, I get a bit excited when I see my favorite younger humans. With consistency, patience, and training, my manners will improve, and I will learn to be more careful.)

“Balto is a velcro dog. He loves to be near you all the time.” (I am grateful to be with loving humans.)

“Balto is not afraid of anything.” (I’m trying to live up to my namesake’s heroic story.)

Pyrly-destined to be your hero, Balto
